Today in History: Beth Phoenix Makes Her WWE Debut


On this day in history:

May 8th, 2006 | After watching Mickie James defeat Maria Kanellis, Trish Stratus couldn’t resist fighting Mickie, despite one arm being in a sling. Mickie soon got the better of Trish, removing the sling and choking her with it. Suddenly, a mystery woman (Beth Phoenix) emerged from the audience to attack Mickie, and it took two security guards to tear her away. Beth would eventually reveal that Mickie had wronged her in the past, but we would never find out how. Beth soon suffered an injury that would put her on the shelf for a year and set her up for a return as a heel who was quite indifferent to Mickie.

What are your memories of this moment?
