New WWE Women’s Champion, Beth Phoenix was injured last night during the WWE Superstars and SmackDown taping, it has been confirmed.
Phoenix wrestled Rosa Mendes in a match taped for Thursday’s episode of Superstars. During the match, Beth went down and the referee threw up the ‘X’ arm gesture to signify an injury. The champion did however, continue the match which was quickly wrapped up.
One source tells us that Beth was seen on crutches following the taping. We hope to have more soon.
Of course, the timing of this injury is extremely bad with Beth just being crowned the new Women’s Champion. Plus, with the release of Mickie James, WWE is light on popular babyface Divas right now. Let’s hope this isn’t serious.
EDIT: Beth sent out the following tweet:
Thank you for the concerned messages…I am 100% just fine and as always in Glamtastic Fighting Form!!
Looks like this could have just been a ‘stinger’. Great to hear that she is okay because this could have been a disaster for the already depleted SmackDown Divas division.
