Lita (Amy Dumas) is born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida despite being billed from Sanford, North Carolina in WWE. She first develops an interest in professional wrestling after watching Rey Mysterio on WCW television. In 1998 she moves to Mexico to learn more about the art of professional wrestling and begins training there.
Wrestlemania 18 is held at the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario. The event features Rob Van Dam vs William Regal, Jazz vs Trish Stratus vs Lita, The Undertaker vs Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan vs The Rock, Edge vs Booker T and Triple H vs Chris Jericho.
Lita is a guest on The Art of Wrestling to discuss WWE and not being able to enjoy early success.
They’d just had Sable and Chyna get big fast then duck out on them. It could be hard at times to enjoy success because the office would say, “Don’t go thinking you’re something special!”
USA Network airs the 1,000th episode of WWE Monday Night RAW live. The special features appearances By The Rock, D-Generation-X and Brock Lesnar as well as Christian vs Miz, Lita vs Slater and Punk vs Cena for the WWE championship.
Lita is a guest on Talk is Jericho to discuss The Hardy Boyz, her origins in lucha libra and leaving WWE.
I did not have a match there (Mexico). I was involved in wrestling related things. I trained at the school there and I got to accompany a team to the ring in a big match at Arena Max and I got to be in a pre-tape as a scared girl promoting a mask vs mask match.
Lita is a guest on The Ross Report to discuss the WWE Hall of Fame and lucha libre.
Rey Mysterio was the number one talent who stuck out to me. I like the mystique of Mexican wrestlers being able to be so expressive with their faces covered. Rey was light-years above the others.
