Being as Lita is one of the few Divas to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, I jumped at the chance to talk to the former Superstar. Speaking via telephone, Dumas discussed what it was like learning she was being inducted into the Hall of Fame; how younger fans will be able to discover her work via the new WWE Network; her top matches; and what are her passions outside of the squared circle…
After thanking Soscia for clearing up what could have been a scheduling snafu via Twitter, Lita explains to Soscia why she is nervous about the getting inducted at the Hall of Fame ceremony. From there she tells us what made her want to become a wrestler. As you would guess, Lita has an adventurous personality and she proves this by explaining why she decided to buy a house and live in Nicaragua for portions of the year.
Lita was lying in a hammock at her home in Nicaragua when she got a text from Stephanie McMahon.
“Yeah, I was just chillin’ when I received this message from Steph saying the office was trying to get a hold of me,” Lita told SLAM! Wrestling this past week.
“I’m pretty out of touch when I’m down there, and I guess they were trying to call me. Steph didn’t say what it was about, so I called the office and they asked me if I would accept the honour of being in the Hall of Fame. So that was pretty exciting.”
For nearly a decade, Amy Dumas wowed WWE fans as Lita, a Diva who paved the way for revolutionary advances in women’s wrestling. Her accomplishments will be recognized and celebrated when she enters the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend as part of WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, Louisiana.
We got to speak with Lita about her upcoming induction, her WrestleMania memories, what role she would play in the Avengers, her favorite Marvel movie and more!
