A WWE Hall of Famer is coming out of retirement at WrestleMania 35.
Beth Phoenix announced she would be teaming with Natalya to challenge Sasha Banks and Bayley for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships in three weeks.
Excerpt courtesy of Mike Tedesco’s live RAW recap:
Natalya’s music hits to interrupt them. Beth Phoenix soon joins her side. Phoenix says she appreciates Banks and Bayley. They’ve done a lot to bring respect to the championships. She’d have loved to have that opportunity when she was competing full time. However, she was content being a commentator until she saw Nia Jax and Tamina trying to set them all back with their jealousy and pettiness. Nia and Tamina did something else, too. They awoke the dragon and got her thinking… maybe her and Nattie’s dream can still become a reality. Phoenix loved her WWE career and accomplishments, but there’s just one thing missing. Since they’re saying they’ll take on all comers anytime, any place, anywhere, she is ready to step out of retirement, stand beside the very best in the WWE, Natalya, and challenge the two of them for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania.
