Beth Phoenix posts a cryptic tweet while eyeing an in-ring return?


The WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix last competed in a WWE ring at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view earlier this year. She teamed up with her husband Edge and defeated another real-life couple in The Miz and Maryse.

Beth Phoenix is one of the most respected female wrestlers to have stepped into the squared circle. The Glamazon shared a cryptic tweet hinting at a potential return to in-ring competition.

Last month, Phoenix tweeted that she was working on a “secret project” with the Stamford-based company. There were rumors of her returning as a full-timer in the ring. She was quite impressive during the mixed tag team match at Royal Rumble.

Phoenix also follows WWE quite closely. She tweets often about Edge’s changed demeanor and The Judgement Day faction.

She might have just dropped a more conclusive hint. The multi-time world champion recently posted a photo on her official Twitter handle where she seemed to be wearing wrestling boots. She wrote:

“Just hopped in my Uber. Perfectly normal.”

Rhea Ripley picks Beth Phoenix as her dream opponent

Rhea Ripley appeared during Edge’s match with AJ Styles and thanks to her assist, the Rated-R Superstar got the victory. The Nightmare went on to join Edge’s heel faction known as The Judgement Day.

Speaking to 99.5 WKDQ, the former NXT Women’s Champion expressed her desire to face Beth Phoenix in the ring and also thoughts regarding the veteran joining The Judgement Day faction.

“I haven’t talked to Beth [Phoenix], but I’ve been seeing a lot of her posts on Twitter and I don’t know if she’s very happy about me joining The Judgment Day. So Beth is gonna have to put her emotions aside and be on our side pretty much, or she’s gonna have to fight me. Beth Phoenix is my dream opponent and if she disagrees with what we’re saying, I wouldn’t mind stepping in the ring with her and settling it once and for all,” Ripley said.

Phoenix was not too pleased it seemed after Ripley joined Edge’s faction. She voiced her opinion about the Australian star and sent a challenge for her as well.
