USA Network and WWE announced today that WWE Superstar Chris Jericho will be the host of the highly anticipated series WWE Tough Enough, and will be joined by a panel of experts comprised of WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and WWE Diva Paige. The high-octane reality series premieres LIVE Tuesday, June 23, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on USA Network and around the world.
This season of WWE Tough Enough will combine the can’t-miss excitement of live television with reality-show drama, as WWE hopefuls vie for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the next WWE Superstar or Diva. Unlike anything on television today, the lightning-fast hour of entertainment and competition will include live results every week, giving fans worldwide the power to decide who stays and who goes the very same night. Each week, one cast member will be eliminated until one man and one woman are considered “Tough Enough,” with each earning a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract.
Throughout the competition, the contestants will be trained by WWE Legends Booker T, Billy Gunn and Lita. Contestants will also come face-to-face with WWE icons including WWE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon; Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque; Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon; and WWE Superstar John Cena, among others.
For those attending WrestleMania Axxess this week, Lita will be appearing at the Thursday session on March 26th!

Do you like 60’s exploitation films, lucha libre, baseball and 80’s skateboard culture? Because I sure do. I’ve teamed up with Heather Bailey and the designers at Pro Wrestling Tees for a killer new merch shop. We have been back and forth all day in preparation of the launch. I’ve never been one for wearing my own shirts, but I may have to start breaking that rule, because these turned out cool.
The WWE’s newest mobile game, WWE Immortals, is available now on most mobile devices.
As of now, the Mortal Kombat-style fighting game’s Diva roster can only be unlocked using in-game currency that can be purchased or earned by playing.
Divas included in the game include Brie Bella (in Ice Witch and Lunar Guardian) Nikki Bella (in Pyromancer and Solar Assassin), Paige (in Dark Sorceress and Banshee Knight) and Trish Stratus (in White Witch and Angelic Knight).
Talent Cards, playable during fights, include Paige’s “Dark Magic”, “PTO” and “Banshee’s Cry”; the Bellas’ “Authority Issues”, “Beautiful and Dangerous” and “Twin Magic”; and Trish Stratus’s “Spotlight”, “Fan Favorite” and “Lita“, which brings in Lita as a tag team partner.
If any of you know anything about me, I am the only woman featured in the top 50 finishers of WWE. Oh, that and I am always running late. I finally found someone reliable to get my ebay store back up and running. Although I have been doing a lot more appearances and meeting so many of you this year, I can’t be everywhere. I thought the store would be a way to still create an intimate experience and until I can be in your town, this seemed like the next best thing. I will write messages to you and your friends and each order always includes a special bonus thing from me. I am random, so there is no telling what it will be. This week we have a few 8x10s for you to start or add to your collection. Once I go home for the holidays I will really have a chance to find some of the more rare or one of a kind items. Tell me what you guys are most interested in seeing in the store and I will do my best to put it up there if I have it. Although signing Love, Lita 2014HOF never gets old, be creative in your personalizations. Let’s have fun with it. Feel free to message the site with requests or comment here to tell me what you guys want.
JOPPA, Md. – For Jessika Heiser, a big reason she decided to become a professional wrestler came on Dec. 6, 2004.
It was on that date that she saw a WWE Raw episode in which two females – Lita and Trish Stratus – wrestled each other in the main event. Unlike many matches involving females, the pair performed many high risk maneuvers, including dives from the rink to the concrete floor.
Heiser said she knew that she wanted to one day follow their path into the ring; something the 23-year-old has accomplished as a regular with Maryland Championship Wrestling.
“At the time, I thought how kick [butt] it was for women to be rocking the main event of the night, but I appreciate it so much more now that I’m trying to get there,” said Heiser, known as Jessie Kaye in MCW.
Heiser didn’t realize at the time just how similar a path she would follow compared to one of the wrestlers in that match.
Get ready Toronto. We can officially announce today that Trish Stratus and Lita will heading north in August.
Celebrating their 19th year, Fan Expo Canada will host Team Bestie among a huge line-up of guests at the largest convention in Canada. Names includes legendary comic creator Stan Lee, stars of The Walking Dead, stars of Napoleon Dynamite and horror icon Robert Englund better known as Freddy Kruger.
The show which will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre starts Thursday August 28th and runs until Sunday August 31st. Team Bestie will be attending all four days.
