Divas Champion Beth Phoenix‘s next feud may not be with a fellow Diva, but a celebrity!
Balls-to-the-walls comedienne Chelsea Handler apparently made some “off-color” comments about women’s wrestling which resulted in the mighty Glamazon taking to Twitter in a flurry of angry messages.
@chelseahandler made some off color comments about Women’s Wrestling last night…Being WWE’s Diva’s Champ I can tell you with confidence that if @chelseahandler has any question about what a “women’s wrestler” can do or how well we entertain, Id be happy to show her. @chelseahandler please allow me to invite you to see a WWE event, live first hand 2/24 at the Staples Center. Of course, the invitation to @chelseahandler extends to the ring…any time …any place…if you would like to see what the Champ is made of.
The comments of which Beth speaks took place last night on Handler’s E! talk show, Chelsea Lately. Handler commented on the recent romance between former Diva Torrie Wilson and MLB star Alex Rodriguez.
Handler commented: “Is that a real thing… women’s wrestling? I know that this Stacy Keibler girl’s a wrestler but I just don’t understand what context are they wrestling [in]? They have wrestling matches that are real? Is it like mud wrestling?”
Thoughts: It came across more as though Chelsea didn’t know much about wrestling or women’s wrestling, rather than bashing it.
