        Beth is definitely one of the girls from her era who I would choose for the Hall of Fame, but I can't help but think how much better her career/legacy could have been had WWE's booking been better.

        I think 2008 was her peak in terms of her character and storylines - the breakup feud with Melina, followed up the Glamarella partnership, were all enjoyable. Those two angles are also good examples of her range, as one was a heated feud with some physicality while the other was a more comedic role.

        Her face run when she moved to SmackDown was pretty good too.

        Divas of Doom was an absolute disaster - which is a shame because I think if her and Nattie's characters + the storyline were all not so horrible, the team could have actually made a mark as heels and helped bring some new interest into the division. Instead it had the opposite effect and was just plain bad, with embarrassing and horrible writing. I've always maintained they should have feuded with the Chickbusters instead of being so heavily involved with Kelly Kelly, which would have 1) produced better matches and 2) added even more substance to AJ going psycho on Kaitlyn during the Daniel Bryan saga the following year.

        In terms of her matches, I'd say two of her best were Vengeance 2011 with Eve Torres and the Tables match with Natalya against LayCool at TLC 2010.

            If you're someone that's very concerned about the history of women's wrestling, Beth Phoenix in the Hall of Fame is probably a headscratcher.

            If you get that Beth is probably in good graces with the company, and WWE probably feels like they need to fill a quota, this makes sense.

                Will Edge or Nattie induct her?

                Edge must have some pull. Taker can't even get his wife in the WWE HOF, The Undertaker!

                Vickie Guerrero should have been the diva pick this year even if she wasn't a wrestler.

                    Sable, Chyna, and Luna Vachon as well. Even Molly Holly and Victoria.

                    Honestly, this doesn't make sense to me. Way too soon.

                            AJ Lee did more in a year for women in the WWE than anyone else in the last 10, and is nowhere to be found. We know the reasons, so I have a theory, that eventually, everyone on good terms with the WWE will be inducted.
