WWE.com recently caught up with former Diva Beth Phoenix, who is married to WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland. Now a mother after giving birth to a baby girl last December, she spoke about what she’s been up to since leaving WWE, her favorite moments in WWE and more. Here are some highlights of what she said about:
What She’s Been Up To Since Leaving WWE:
“Oh, my gosh! Life has been nuts in the last two years. I’ve been doing a lot of shuffling and moving around, and the biggest thing that’s happened is that I became a mother!
I got pregnant five or six months after I retired, and then it was off to the races! It was a complete change of gears, and I was refocusing my life on my family. That was the reason I left WWE — not to have a baby, but to spend time with family. That was just a wonderful side result of spending time at home and being with my family. That was awesome, and it’s been a big change.”
Being in the 2010 Royal Rumble:
“I think the biggest thing for me was that it was one of those moments where I was like, “Okay, this is why I got into wrestling.” I wanted to be a female like Chyna, who broke boundaries and did things that were really special. And you know, just somebody that stood out. This was my moment. Like that Glam Slam, it was one of those moments in your life that you just treasure, and I knew it was going to be over fast. I needed to take a few breaths while I was out there and just inhale it. Because I knew it was something that would change my life and really satisfy some of those dreams that I had as a little girl.”
