WWE Hall of Famer leaving commentary position

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix has confirmed that she will be leaving the commentary position on NXT 2.0 following the WarGames event this Sunday.

Phoenix took to social media to confirm that she will not be at the booth following this Sunday’s event. ‘Ahead of WarGames, I wanted to share that this Sunday will be my final night in NXT,’ Beth began.

‘While I will remain a part of WWE, I have made the choice to step away from the weekly broadcast booth to spend more time with my family” Phoenix revealed.

“This was not an easy decision, as I have loved my three-plus years and 135 episodes with NXT and am incredibly proud of the brand.

“I will forever be grateful to Vic Joseph, Wade Barrett, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips, Mauro Ranallo, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Michael Cole, and my entire NXT family both in and out of the ring for the amazing opportunity.

“NXT will always be a part of me and Auntie Betty will always be a part of NXT. Leave the porch light on for me!” Beth Phoenix concluded.

This is a massive shame, as Beth was one of the best parts of commentary across WWE programming, hopefully, there is a spot open for her down the line.
