Beth Phoenix Says 2012 WWE Departure Was Due To Creative Frustrations

WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix has said creative differences backstage caused her to leave the company in 2012.

Phoenix, 38, joined the main roster in 2006, and held both the Women's and Divas Championships before her departure six years later.

Speaking to Sean Mooney on his Prime Time Podcast, the Glamazon said how feeling that the company wasn't investing enough time on the women of the era caused her to leave.

She said: "I was really frustrated with where the women were at from a company standpoint, and the investment that was being made in us.

"I felt in my heart I had done my best, and I’d try really hard to change things but, at some point I just got really frustrated.”

Phoenix was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017, and has since returned to the company as a commentator.

She joined the commentary booth for the first season of Mixed Match Challenge in January 2018 and in May this year the company announced that she will be joining NXT as a full-time commentator.

She returned to the ring at WrestleMania 35, teaming with Divas of Doom comrade, Natalya.
