• Ruthless Aggression Era Diva Wants A Big Farewell Match
Former WWE Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix was a recent guest on former WWE announcer Renee Young’s ‘Oral Sessions’ podcast, where they discussed a possible farewell match for Beth.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“I am medically cleared. Once a wrestler, always a wrestler. I’m not gonna lie about it. I feel like, you couldn’t do this and want to do this your whole life without having that little bug. I get so happy to be in the conversation of today’s stars would look forward to facing.
When I left WWE, I felt really insignificant and like I hadn’t done anything. Like I hadn’t moved the needle. I felt so sad about that part but okay to move on. Now, I’m getting this wonderful recognition from today’s women and it makes me feel so good.
As far as coming back to the ring, I say this in every interview, ‘never say never.’ If the right opportunity arose and I could do business, that’s all I could care about. Would I love to have a retirement match, a big farewell, and give someone the high five and pass the torch?
Heck yes, but there is only a limited amount of people I could do that for where, as on commentary, I can do that for two hours every single week. Every week, I can tell you how awesome Indi Hartwell is and tell you ‘look at Shotzi Blackheart’s improvements’ and help all the talent weekly on commentary.
In that respect, I love commentary because I feel like I’m contributing in a positive way. The in-ring stuff, I don’t know what the future brings. I don’t write off anything or close any doors. If there were something that WWE is interested in doing, I would love to say goodbye and high-five somebody and give them an endorsement from a Hall of Famer. Who wants to retire a Hall of Famer?”
The last time we saw Beth as a performer was at the 2020 Royal Rumble PPV, where she was a surprise entrant in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.

• Old School WCW Valet Celebrates Her Birthday
Old School WCW Valet Daffney (Real name: Shannon Spruill) celebrates her 46th birthday today.
Most Old School Wrestling fans will remember seeing her on WCW TV as David Flair’s (kayfabe) mentally ill girlfriend, managing the Tag Team of David & Crowbar.
The last time she was seen on a major wrestling television product was when she had a run in Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (now known as iMPACT Wrestling) from 2008 till 2010, when she managed Dr. Stevie (Stevie Richards) and got involved in a storyline with The Beautiful People, but also wrestled quite a lot herself.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAFFNEY!
