WWE revealed Beth Phoenix as their latest inductee to the class of 2017 Hall of Fame.

Also known as “The Glamazon,” Phoenix is one of the most dominant female competitors to ever step into the ring. She initially made her debut ambushing Mickie James and siding with fellow Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. The storyline was cut short due to a jaw injury that set her wrestling career aside for more than a year. She returned on RAW and soon enough she captured the Women’s Championship for the first time.

Who could forget her storyline with Santino Marella? The pair made for some laughs and she even gave herself the name “Glamaerlla.” Later on, she would reclaim the Women’s Championship title for a second time.

Phoenix was in another tag team with her friend Natalya dubbing themselves the Divas of Doom. Phoenix also went on to gain the Diva’s Championship before retiring from the ring in 2012.

She set the bar high for many female competitors as she became the second woman ever to enter the annual Royal Rumble in 2010. Phoenix impressed everyone as she eliminated the Great Khali. She also competed in the first ever women’s TLC match that same year.

This year’s WWE Hall of Fame will be held on Friday, March 31st at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. Click here for tickets.
