YMMV / Beth Phoenix

  • Badass Decay: Three words "Hunter, we're girls!"
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Her entire new collection of outfits since SummerSlam. All she needs now is an apron and roller skates.
  • Growing the Beard: Despite having wrestled legitimately for most of her life, her first two years as rookie in pro wrestling weren't full of stunning matches. A lot of promoters saw something special in her though and she was well on her way to becoming the pro wrestler people would rave about by 2003.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Wrestling future boyfriend CM Punk (they since have split up) in the ring during the 2010 Royal Rumble.
  • Hollywood Homely
    • Early on, WWE tried to have a few jokes at the expense of her supposedly "mannish" features. Nobody bought it.
    • Laycool is still trying to do this as part of their Alpha Bitch persona, but now it's used more to show LayCool as a pair of idiots.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: At the start of her most current (late 2011-early 2012) heel run, she declared she wanted to put an end to the era of the eye-candy, "Barbie doll" Divas. Unfortunate Implications aside note , it might have gotten over decently as a heel gimmick if it weren't for the fact that a lot of smarks and fans of the old-school women's division agreed with her. This may or may not have been the reason for her Flanderization into a self-centered Alpha Bitch.
    • Jerkass Has a Point: The Diva Search Idiots and the Catalog Idiots (John Laurinaitis found Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox in the same swimsuit catalog) dragged down the division and added nothing valuable to the product.
