Beth Phoenix (Beth Kocianski)

Elizabeth Kocanski Carolan (born November 24, 1980) is an American professional wrestler, better known by her ring name Beth Phoenix.

She is signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where she wrestles on the SmackDown brand.

Carolan had a successful amateur wrestling career in high school, before being trained by the All Knighters.

After her debut in May 2001, she wrestled for numerous independent promotions, and was the inaugural GLORY Champion.


She also appeared at the inaugural Shimmer shows.


In 2004, she began working for Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), and signed a developmental contract with WWE in October 2005.

Phoenix, appeared in the February 2009 issue of FLEX Magazine.

She first debuted on WWE's Raw brand in May 2006, but suffered a legitimate broken jaw the following month.



As a result, she had numerous surgeries and returned to OVW for further training.

While there, she twice won the OVW Women's Championship, although her second reign is not officially recognized.

She returned to the Raw brand in July 2007, and was heavily pushed, dominating the other WWE Divas and gaining the nickname, "The Glamazon".

She won her first WWE Women's Championship at the No Mercy pay-per-view in October, and held it for six months.

She then developed an on-screen relationship with Santino Marella, dubbed "Glamarella", and won the Women's Championship for a second time in August 2008, although she lost it in January 2009.

In January 2010, at the Royal Rumble she became the second woman in history to enter the Royal Rumble match, and went on to win the Women's Championship for the third time in April, holding it for a month.

After a brief hiatus, Phoenix returned on the July 27 episode of Raw, teaming with Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendes in a losing effort to Mickie James, Gail Kim, and Kelly Kelly.

Phoenix had her first opportunity for the WWE Divas Championship being narrowly defeated by the defending champion, Mickie James, on the August 31 episode of Raw, after winning a number one contenders battle royal that same night.

On the October 12 episode of Raw, it was announced that Phoenix had been traded to the SmackDown brand for the first time in her career.

Phoenix made her in-ring debut for the brand on the October 30 episode of SmackDown, defeating Jenny Brooks, an "enhancement talent".

In January 2010, at the Royal Rumble, she entered the Royal Rumble match, eliminating The Great Khali, before she was eliminated by CM Punk.

With her entry, she became only the second woman in history to enter the Royal Rumble match, with the first being Chyna.

After being told by Vickie Guerrero, the SmackDown consultant, that she would not be receiving a championship opportunity Phoenix saved Tiffany from an attack by Guerrero, Michelle McCool and Layla on the March 12 episode of SmackDown, in doing so becoming a fan favorite.

She then went on to defeat Michelle McCool and Layla in a tag team match involving Tiffany.

The feud with McCool continued at WrestleMania XXVI, where they were on opposing teams in a 10-Diva tag team match, which Phoenix's team lost, although they won a rematch the following night on Raw.

Phoenix received a match for the Women's Championship against McCool at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in April, and defeated McCool in an "Extreme Makeover" match to win her third Women's Championship.

On the May 6 episode of WWE Superstars, Phoenix tore her ACL, and as a result, one week later on SmackDown, McCool invoked her rematch clause to face Phoenix in a two-on-one handicap match along with Layla. Layla pinned Phoenix to become the new WWE Women's Champion.

She returned from her injury at November's Survivor Series pay-per-view, and attacked the former co-Champions Michelle McCool and Layla, after they lost the Divas Championship to Natalya.
