Photo: WWE caught up with former diva Beth Phoenix to discuss life after wrestling, including being a new mom. She also reveals the piece of advice Trish gave her: Let’s take things back to 2006. You’d been training at WWE’s developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling [OVW], but you appeared on Raw that May as Trish Stratus’ ally. What kind of advice did Trish give you?

Beth: Trish was awesome. I had bumped into her a couple of times when I was working my way on the independent circuit, and I was quite intimidated by her, to be honest. She was very forward with her question. She asked me, “What makes you want to do this? What do you think of girls who came from a modeling background?” She was one of those people who saw potential in me from the beginning. Unfortunately, the way it worked out, I was coming in as she was getting ready to retire. So we didn’t really get to cross paths all that much aside from some fun little one-off matches. But she was somebody that imparted a lot of awesome advice.

I distinctly remember one piece of advice she gave me that was helpful throughout my entire career. And that was to say “thank you.” She taught me that it was okay to accept successes, to take compliments, to appreciate them and not be mousy when it comes to that stuff. Her confidence had a big impact on me coming in and learning the ropes, so to speak.
