Last night at the Royal Rumble, Beth Phoenix became the second woman ever to compete in the annual 30-"man" battle royal. The Glamazon spoke to WWE.com last night about the experience and had some very harsh words for the first woman to enter the Rumble, former Diva Joanie "Chyna" Laurer.
Phoenix told WWE.com, "Despite Chyna's accomplishments [in the Rumble]. I eliminated The Great Khali. Seven-foot-three, 420 pounds. No small feat."
She then rips into Chyna, questioning whether she's a man or woman. "I am WWE's Glamazon. Chyna was WWE's Ninth Wonder of the World … mostly called so because people wondered whether she was a man or a woman. I often wonder this, myself."
Phoenix admits that she used to look up to Chyna, but would destroy her today if the two ever fought in the ring.
"Chyna would have had a slight size advantage in her primebut I'll tell you what Chyna was missing and that was heart ... Chyna got comfortable, she got soft in her position. I'm quite the opposite. I get better and better. In the ring, toe-to-toe with me, Chyna doesn't compare."
