Know your WWE Hall of Famers like you never did before!

Two nights before Wrestlemania, WWE will honour men and women who’ve paved the path for the current generation by inducting these trailblazers into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Everybody knows that Kurt Angle won an Olympic Gold Medal with a broken neck and that Beth Phoenix is married to Edge. No, this article will not state the obvious. Instead, it will bring to light certain interesting facts that you had no idea about. Some of these facts are funny, others are well, not so much!

Here’s one surprising fact before we even begin the actual countdown. This is the first year since 2010 to not have a celebrity induction, as of right now.

Anyway, without further ado, sit back, fasten your seat belts, and gear up for an adventure into WWE trivia land with Sportskeeda Wrestling. 

#5 Beth Phoenix got her nickname from Sex and the City

Sarah Jessica Parker inspired The Glamazon

With her amateur wrestling background, Beth Phoenix is an imposing figure. At the same time, she is gorgeous in her own way, something she wanted to capture in her character when she was wrestling in WWE’s developmental territory. To get noticed as a standout character in OVW, Beth Phoenix wanted to be seen as a ‘beautiful terror’ and hence came up with the name ‘Glamazon’.

Here’s the funny story: it wasn't an original term. She first heard Sarah Jessica Parker use the term in the HBO series- Sex and the City. WWE liked it so much that when she was called up to the main roster, they asked her to use it as her official gimmick.

With the name ‘Glamazon’, Beth Phoenix wanted to break down barriers and deliver the message that strong women can be beautiful.
