WrestleMania 28 Playlist: Beth Phoenix’s Last WrestleMania Moment

As we get ready for Sunday’s WrestleMania 28 pay per view, we’re putting together a playlist of videos featuring the women involved.

While WrestleMania 28 will be the first big match at the ‘Grandest Stage of Them All’ for Eve and Kelly Kelly, one participant in this match has basked under the spotlights of WrestleMania before: Beth Phoenix. In 2008, the Glamazon teamed with Melina against Maria Kanellis and Ashley Massaro in a tag team match. That match also took place in Florida, much like her match this year, albeit in Orlando.

In that match, Beth got to create a cool WrestleMania moment as Melina planted Ashley with a moonsault off of Beth’s shoulders.

Tomorrow night, Beth gets another shot at creating a ‘Mania moment when she teams with Eve against Kelly Kelly and Maria Menounos. One has to wonder whether she and Eve have a similar water-cooler moment planned?

Watch the WrestleMania 24 match below:

    This match is exactly how this year’s mania match will go. Not to mention this will be the second time Beth has faced a Maria.

    • Charlie-K2

      I personally liked this match, it wasnt a bad one, but i hope this year is better, but with Maria’s injury… it’s kinda hopeless, but maybe Kelly, Beth & Eve have a back-up plan, I hpe that if Kelly & Maria lose the match Layla return after the match. Also i want to see TORRIE :3 i rooting for seeing her in backstage segmente also Michelle Mccool, they should get involved somehow in the show. If that happens i’ll be happy with this year WM.

      • josh101

        Oh yeah I agree this wasn’t a bad match it was pretty good to me I was just mentioning how this year’s feel so similar to WM 24 esp. with them being in Florida etc.

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    CTFU match was so BORING Snoop fell asleep ! I dont blame him. All of Beth Mania moments was a fail she competed in 3 Tag matches and one horrible Miss WM Battle Royal ! at least she got a Mania win tho…

    • RayneWoman

      To tell you the truth, half of the diva today never got the WM moment. Dont blame it on only Beth. The last diva to get a perfect WM match was Mickie. And also, Melina was in this match. Her WM matches werent that much of a success either.

      • Melina&Mickie4ever!

        I know Im not only blaming Beth. I was only speaking for her and her Mania moments. Yeah I know that the other divas has not got a good Mania moment either. If you look at it out of all the current divas on the roster now Beth has had more mania matches than them. ( I think)

        • RayneWoman

          I can only cross my fingers and hope Beth gets a legit WM match before she retires. WM 29 is her only hope. I am hoping for AJ vs Beth vs Kharma. Put Eve in the mix and you got yourself a fatal four way ala Trish vs Jazz vs Victoria vs Lita.

    • Jhonmarco

      Disagree about the Beth part. She was SO boring in 07-08. Not to mention her 72 matches with Mickie putting me to sleep. She seems more interesting now than 2007.

  • RayneWoman

    Poor her. She never got the perfect WM moment. The last diva to get a perfect WM moment was Mickie (Against her match with Trish). I wish they would give her a legit WM next year before she retires. I hope WM 28 will be Kharma vs Beth vs AJ just like Randy vs Kurt vs Rey.

    8Mins before anything happened omfg dead silence as well LOL….
    this match just reminds me how awful maria & ashely were,both all over the place & clumsy looking….Could ashley ever run LOL.
    beth mvp of this match LOL…i have a feeling this mania will be the same….

  • Poison_Ivory

    Oh dear god, what the heck was Kelly wearing? Looks like a raincoat made into a dress.. Just awful.

  • bjorn448

    And Wrestlemania 25 & 26??

  • Teri

    Oh Ashley Massaro, how your in-ring presence annoys the fuck out of me. They should have ditched the lame ass punk-rocker wannabe gimmick and given her a manager type role, given she was pretty good on the mic. Oh, and how fucking comical was it that King got the biggest pop during that match, lololol

    As for this year’s Mania, I’m glad the tag match this sunday isn’t a god damn lumberjill match. How fucking lame would that be? Judging by the momentum shift on last week’s Raw, I imagine the ending being similar to WM 24′s diva tag match. Except at the end of the match it’ll be Hornswoggle, not Snoop Dogg.

    Orrrrrrrr if WWE decides to NOT be cunts for once, there’s always the possibility of a Natalya/Layla/Kharma interference, which I KNOW we are all praying for.

    /waits for joshifanx to remind us that the women of the wwe are being objectified, that wwe is a sexist/homophobic company, that jessicka havok and leva bates are the best, and that they are not ignorant because they don’t like it when women objectify themselves and apparently that’s enough to justify everything they do/say

    • josh101

      I miss seeing Ashley botch the hell out of everything.

    • Mr_Adone

      That user bothers me to the max. Its like indy this and indy that. No its like Shut The Fuck UP. And I speak for 98% of commentors on this site when I say that.

    • Jhonmarco

      LMAO @ your joshifanx analogy! Love it. I still find it HILARIOUS that she claimed that not everyone hated her. Bitch if everyone who’s commenting is against you, what the hell does that say? The funniest part is she actually gave an actual a WM moment after 100 fucking comments on her post. Really?

    • French.One

      Well, WWE mostly objectify the divas, and actually I like joshifanx, don’t be too hard on her ;)

  • Mr_Adone

    Finally finished with that school shit. Anywho wassup homies. Even if I didnt feel fond of you I missed yall. All that sentimental shit aside, time to talk mania.
    I didnt like this match for the simple fact that the crowd was dead the entire time. I mean ashely and maria were not that good of wrestlers at the time so im not shocked at the fact that beth and melina had to carry the match but come on man.
    Now hopefully the crowd is better this sunday. I mean kelly the hometown girl, u have eve the top heel at the moment, yeah I said it : P, Im not sure how the crowd will react to beth and maria but ey wateva.
    But with all that I think there will b more. Aside from the fact that aj is so screwing daniel out of his match with sheamus, i also feel that zack ryder will b turning heel.
    Think about it yo. Zack got on team teddy because of eve, zack will do watever it is that eve will do because he loves her. My thinking is that these two have been playing people the entire time. And santino has zacks title which zack never got his rematch for. More amunition on top of the fact that if teddy is in control he and eve ont see eye to eye becaause she is a heel. Thats just my thinking. I so hope it happens. No they wont be edge and lita 2.0 but they will be eve and zack lol. The NEW power heel couple and their first fued? John cena.

    • Faye

      <3

      • Mr_Adone

        FAAAYYYYEEE O how I have missed u love

        • Faye

          You KNOW i miss you! Don’t worry b, I’ve been buried alive with school work too, haha.

          <3<3<3<3 Can't wait to have out Wrestlemania Eve moment :D

        • Mr_Adone

          U 2? lol This college thing aint no joke. But I cant wait till tomorrow. I have been going everywhere on eveysite looking for the set design of mania in general.

        • Faye

          LOL! YES, i’ve been six feet under with this shit! I’m excited for Mania! Hopefully I can find a good stream. I am not paying for that. I’ll only be watching the divas match, and looking out for Aj lol

        • Mr_Adone

          What? I have to watch the entire mania show. I made a promise that if I cant go that I will watch it from home. But next year im going to b in New Jersey for that thang lol

        • Faye

          LOL unless they make their way to Toronto again for Mania, I won’t be going any time soon!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    Watching this again makes me so proud of how far eve has become as a “diva” . Who knew she’d come this far ? :)

    Also I always felt like if candice was involved in this match, this match would’ve been the last good mania match we would’ve had. This isn’t a knock to ashley, because Im actually a fan, but she wasn’t qualified for a mania match. Where as candice, was more than qualified. Sucks that she got injured. It would’ve been a good moment for her.

    And tomorrow night we might see some DejaVu. I feel like it’ll happen 2 ways;

    1. Layla will take maria’s place, pretty much like ashley with candice.

    OR

    2. Beth & Eve will win. They perform an after-match attack. Cue layla to save kelly & maria and we have both the heels & faces with their wrestlemania moment.

    Either way, I see layla involved in tomorrow nights match. Somehow. Its her hometown & thats the biggest hint.

    • josh101

      I always thought if Candice was in the match it would have been a whole lot better. But since she got injured it didn’t happen. And I also feel if it wasn’t called Bunnymania maybe Mickie could have took Candice’s place.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        I agree with both your points. Candice was at the top of her game back then. The tag would’ve been pretty great if she was there. And if not candice, I wanted mickie to be maria’s partner. She had history with melina & was in a feud with beth, at the time. If mickie got to be in the match, you can bet anything that the match would’ve had crowd involved & it would’ve been close to stellar.

  • SteveSteve

    this match was better then i remembered. i liked it. and the match this year will probably be better then this, even. and i also think the crowd will be semi into it being the women who are involved. im excited

  • LadyGoDiva

    Whats so funny is that looking back at this match it wasn’t that bad, wrestling wise,good tag team work by Melina and Beth the match last over ten minutes I don’t think that the lumberjills needed to be there. Would appreciate to hear the crowd react in the match.

    Whatever happens at WM, I only hope that the four ladies in the match will at least put on a good match with a few good spots/moments.

  • Jhonmarco

    Ashley always had an interesting style that’s for sure. An okay match, where Melina was actually a good wrestler & Maria was fine here. Nothing too bad. Beth was Beth, beating bitches down.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    I hope the mania arena is without a ceiling. Since its in florida, they must have something summer-like planned.

    • Jhonmarco

      That’d be pretty fucking hot!

    • RayneWoman

      They dont have a ceiling. They have a pyramid hanging on top of the ring.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

      Marco, Right! I’ve always been a fan of arena’s like that. I remember one of the manias was outdoors :’)

      Raynewoman, smh. I really wanted it like that. With the Highway length ramp.

      Either way, it’ll be a good site to see eve walk that long ramp with her bitch walk. OMG <33

      • RayneWoman

        Just look up WWE WM 28 setup, and then you can see. It’s like a pyramid thingy supported by long supporting thingies.

      • Jhonmarco

        Big fan of that bitch walk! Some girls have it like Melina & Trish did, & Eve has it! It’s a pretty cool swagger walk to have :p haha.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        Raynewoman, I see what you mean. But they could have that, without a roof. Like they could be able to see the sun & stars. Thats what I mean :p

        Marco, you already know. Those hips be moving like a blender! I can already picture her, with her glory moment, spinning around ( ala psycho mickie ) lmfao

        • Jhonmarco

          Lmao I just imagined Eve as a psycho with Mickie’s facial expressions! That’d be hot as well!

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          That’d be a pleasure to see ;)

    • Teri

      “I hope the mania arena is without a ceiling. Since its in florida, they must have something summer-like planned.”

      YES!YES!YESSS!

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        lets hope ;D

        • Teri

          Just saw leaked photos of the WM arena..

          ….turns out we’re getting an open arena after all!

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          :DD OMG ! Thank GOD! I knew it :D

  • WWFoverWWE

    Ashley got a lot of shit for not being a good wrestler but the truth is she never got any proper training to begin with. She never got any sort of training from developmental but WWE insisted that she compete every week on the main roster. Epic Fail on WWE’s part.

    • Jhonmarco

      I heard that as well in an interview from Trish. I scratch my head wondering what WWE was thinking? Must explain why today’s “model” girls seem more prepared & trained.

      • WWFoverWWE

        Exactly. I remember reading some of Ashley’s interviews where she was so frustrated with management not allowing her to go to developmental because they needed her on TV every week.

        After winning the diva search, they immediately put her on the main roster and that’s where she started getting heat from fans for being a shitty wrestler.

        Ashley even admitted that anything she learned in wrestling was by watching her fellow divas and video tapes.

        • Jhonmarco

          Really sucks, not making excuses for her, but wasn’t Kelly put on TV a month after being signed & hasn’t been to FCW since?

        • WWFoverWWE

          FCW wasn’t the developmental territory when kelly was signed, OVW was. And yes, Kelly was in a similiar situation to Ashley.

          Kelly was signed, got very little training, and was immediately sent to ECW. But unlike Ashley, kelly had at least some type of training (very very little though)

          The model divas from 2004-2007 had it rough when it came to becoming good wrestlers.

        • redsandman99

          How WWE thought just throwing the girls into the ring with so little training baffles me. If you want to turn a model into a wrestler then at least TRAIN her properly. Ashley was always getting injured for goodness sakes and Kelly, for as much as she does try and can rise to the occasion, needed a lesson in rope running.

        • Teri

          When you’ve been with the company for 6 years (in-ring competition), there is NO excuse for poor rope-running. I REALLY want to know the truth behind her inability to run the ropes. I just don’t get it.

        • redsandman99

          I don’t get it either. And the bad thing is, the whole headscissors takedown she does REQUIRES her to run the ropes properly. She gets no momentum going into the move from the way she runs them now which makes it so obvious her opponent is waiting for her to come into the move.

  • http://twitter.com/sulkingbeauty adifferentsame

    Ashley Massaro made Maria Kanellis look like a Godsend in this match.

  • MNM4ever

    Melina vs beth phoenix would have been heaps better as a mania match!!!
    or melina and beth vs candice michelle and mickie james

    • MNM4ever

      * and i abolutely loved melina’s moonsault in this match!
