She started her WWE career in 2004 at the Diva Search and since then has gone on to feud with major star Victoria as well as teaming up with 16-times Champion John Cena.
The brunette star became a fan favourite for her saucy shenanigans in the ring – available in the above video – and for making the cover of Playboy magazine in 2008.
This was also back when John Cena was caught cheating on his wife with Mickie James and he was thought to have also had a fling with Kelly Kelly around the same time. Victoria had an impressive run in WWE before she made the switch to TNA and once again made a name for herself as Tara.
Does the fact that Beth Phoenix is the only Diva on the roster with any in ring ability make up for the fact that Punk has never had a legit WWE Championship title run with any sort of longevity? Or does Punk need a legit title run to make this a true statement?
Can Punk and Phoenix take a nod from the ‘Macmahon-Helmsey era’ vibe, and rebrand themselves as the most dominated couple in the WWE?
While on TNA, she was a five-time TNA Knockouts Champion.
In 2013, she decided to try her hand at the restaurant business and opened up a wrestling-themed restaurant in Chicago (named The Squared Circle).
