Celebrity Jersey Cards #214 Melina Perez & Beth Phoenix

Athletes get trading cards.  Why not celebrities?  At least celebrities wearing athletic jerseys should get cards.  I am doing my best to create cards for jersey-clad celebs.  Today, in honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, I am featuring the lovely and talented wrestlers of the WWE wearing college basketball jerseys.

California native Melina Perez is featured in a Gonzaga uniform for her NCAA Special Edition Celebrity Jersey Card.  Melina won both versions of the WWE Women's championship, but had a relatively short in-ring career.  She might be best-known for her ring entrance featuring the splits.  Gonzaga is always one of the teams I watch in the tourney and Melina is cetainly inspiring me to continue watching the Bulldogs.
"The Glamazon" Beth Phoenix is a retired former multi-time champ.  Beth should have been a dominant force in wrestling, if she was booked properly.  Unfortunately, those in charge prefer fluff to substance (even though Beth is quite lovely).  Beth represents Syracuse for her NCAA Special Edition Celebrity Jersey Card, which is appropriate, because she is a native New Yorker.
