As noted, Beth Phoenix recently appeared as a guest on the Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
In addition to the highlights from the interview we recently published here on the website, the WWE Hall of Fame legend also spoke at length about her husband, Edge, returning to WWE after a career-ending neck injury and how it was covered in a recent documentary special.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where “The Glamazon” touches on this particular topic at length.
“The documentary shows a little bit of it. What you see on the screen is 2% of it. It’s been years and years of the work he’s put in, pretty much since 2018, trying to get himself physically and mentally ready to do this. Me as a wife, it has been jarring. It has been difficult because I had for almost 10 years wrapped my head around the fact that if he gets in a car accident, he could die. If he falls the wrong way, he could die. We were told all these things that really made me terrified for Adam to be in a dangerous situation.
“Even mountain biking, I was nervous and uncomfortable. I love him and I don’t want anything to happen to him. Then when he starts contemplating this wrestling thing, I’m like, ‘Are you nuts? Maybe we should go to a psychiatrist instead of Dr. Maroon.’ He just knew himself, and he knew his body more than I did. I said, ‘There’s two things I need to see before any of this can happen. This is as your wife, and I will be the big heavy on this and say no because we have two kids. I have to see this with my own eyes, number one, and then I have to hear this from the best in the world. I have to hear from our team that you will be ok. I have to see it. I have to see you move around, and I have to see it with my own eyes to be convinced that this is real.’ He did both, so what can I do?”
