Today in History: Beth Phoenix Breaks Her Jaw


On this day in history:

June 5th, 2006 | It would probably be an understatement to say that Beth Phoenix had some bad luck during her first run with the WWE. After debuting as a mysterious figure in Mickie James‘s past and hounding her for a few weeks, she wrestled her first singles match against Victoria. During the bout she suffered a fractured mandible, though she toughed it out so well you wouldn’t know it by watching the match. The injury would keep her off of WWE programming for over a year. Beth would eventually return as a heel, and that begs the question: did a broken jaw give birth to the Glamazon?

What are your memories of this moment?
