In the latest episode of Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast featuring Beth Phoenix, Beth detailed how she got into wrestling, revealing the role that former WWE Diva Molly Holly played in getting her to the WWE, saying, “[Molly] is probably one of the biggest reasons that I’m working with the WWE right now.”

Beth explained that, while with the indy promotion APW, she took part in a signing at that year’s WrestleMania Fan Axxess event in Toronto. There, she gave Molly a match tape (coincidentally, with soon-to-be fellow Diva Gail Kim (http://www.diva-dirt.com/tag/gail-kim/)), which Molly passed on to trainer Dr. Tom Prichard. Seven months later Beth, Gail and current TNA Knockout Traci Brooks (http://www.diva-dirt.com/tag/traci-brooks/) got the call to attend a SmackDown taping and take part in tryout matches. Gail was the only one to get a contract at the time, but eventually Molly encouraged Beth to head to OVW and train. Just out of college, Beth couldn’t really afford to make the full OVW tuition payments, and found that when she went to make her first payment that someone had already made it for her. Beth eventually discovered that Molly covered almost half of her OVW tuition, which Molly said was her way of paying forward the opportunities that others had given her when she had started out. Since Molly wouldn’t accept repayment, Beth would eventually put together a photo album chronicling her journey to the WWE and sent it to her, letting Molly know that it was because of her that her dream came true.

Molly Holly really has a huge heart, and she really knows talent when she sees it. I am happy that Beth Phoenix has accomplished everything that she did. Both of them must be very proud of each other right now.

Where is Molly Holly these days anyway?

That's awesome that Molly Holly did that. How many stars of today in either organization would do something like that?

She's some type of activist. Too lazy to look into it.

A great Diva of the last era scouted two greats Divas of this era. Now that's what I call knowing something good when you see one.

Him, GOB and Buster MADE ARREST DEVELOPMENT.

One thing i thought was genius in the show is that Lindsay (Portia Di Rossi) is a lesbian in real life and David Cross's girlfriend is gorgeous.
