Beth Phoenix On Serena Williams Coming To The WWE, Advice For Future Stars & More


Beth Phoenix was interviewed by “Planeta Wrestling” shortly prior to WWE Evolution. During the interview, she touched on her thoughts about Serena Williams coming to the WWE, advice she’d give future wrestlers and how women’s wrestling is progressing outside of the WWE. Here are the highlights:

Phoenix On Women’s Wrestling Outside Of The WWE:

I think it is fantastic. I think it is sending a message now, that we are no longer going to look at the women as a side attraction. I think we’ve been working to send that message for a while now the last few years. This is a real exclamation point for the whole effort that everybody’s been putting in for decades, that now we are in a spot, in a place where it is time to look at women as an attraction equal to the men.

On Rumors That The WWE Wants To Bring In Serena Williams:

What is cool is that Serena: not only is she probably one of the world’s greatest female athletes of all time, she’s got a lot of charisma. It is hard to find somebody that is that perfect combination of athletic, skilled, charisma, and also has the grit to go on the road and go on the grind, to be away from your family for all of that time. I’d have to agree with Stephanie on that. I’m a tennis fan as well.

On The Advice She’d Give To Future Wrestlers:

Just go for it. Life is too short to second-guess yourself. Believe in yourself. There is no mold, make your own mold and go for it.
