The following is an excerpt from a new article on WWE.com that features comments from WWE Diva Beth Phoenix on her injury and upcoming rehab.
After undergoing surgery for her severely torn left ACL ligament, Beth Phoenix hoped to answer the many questions and concerns that the WWE Universe has expressed about her progress and wellbeing.
â€œThe WWE Universe has been wonderful with its outpouring of encouraging support,â€ expressed a grateful Glamazon as she recuperated in her hospital bed. The beauty from Buffalo wasted no time revealing her state of mind as she begins the long road to recovery â€“ and hopefully returning to the ring better than ever.
â€œI can’t afford to spend one day feeling sorry for myself, to feel sad or pitiful, because that’s energy that I could be putting into picking myself up.
â€œOver the years, I’ve built my career on one simple principle: the idea that I will always rise again,â€ the dominant Diva continued, embodying the true essence of her resilient name. â€œWhether struggling against the obstacles that stood in the way of me becoming part of WWE, coming back from surgeries or losing titles, I welcome the challenges that life throws my way. This will be no different.â€
However, in order for The Fabulous Firebird to rise from the ashes once again, she will need more than her unparalleled dedication and drive.
â€œRehab will be the hardest thing for me. I’m not used to being told, â€˜Take it easy.â€™ It’s usually â€˜Push the limits!â€™ More than anything, this comeback will be a test of patience for me.â€
