Former WWE Divas champion Beth Phoenix has given her notice and will be departing WWE by the end of next month.

Phoenix took some extended personal time off recently after a death in her family and it seems that she hasn’t recovered yet.

The 31 year old New York native made her WWE debut in May 2006 on RAW, aligning herself with Trish Stratus. Her debut was short lived after suffering a fractured mandible that kept her on the sidelines for a year.

During her WWE stint, she won the WWE Women’s title on three different occasions, the Divas title once, the Slammy Award for Diva of the Year, and also joined the very rare group of women who participated in the Royal Rumble.
