Lita on WrestleMania 25: “I Was Dying Laughing”


Three months after the fact, people are still talking about the trainwreck that was WrestleMania 25 [seriously, we need to name that shit — WrestleManiagate? Comment with your suggestions!] on April 5th. The latest Diva to weigh in is former four time Women’s Champion, Lita – real name Amy Dumas – in an interview with

Faye: Were you invited to take part in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25, this year? If so, why did you turn it down?
Amy: Did you see that match?!
Faye: Yeah, it was so bad!
Amy: Right, that’s why I turned it down. [laughs] I did watch it, though. I was dying laughing, I was in stitches, rolling on the couch, thinking, “Thank God, I’m not there, because that is nothing I need to be a part of.” No, first of all, let me tell you this, because Kid Rock was playing for like forever, right? I was like, “Get out of the way, what is this guy doing?! Come on! I didn’t know this guy still sang!” and then, these girls started coming out and I’m thinking they’re like his hoes, his hired dancers, about to break out into some choreographed Beyoncé-shit, but then I realised and was like, “Oh my God!” I can only imagine them being like, “So, what we’re wanting you to do is: grab Kid Rock’s leg, start grinding up on it, then go into the ring and do a drop toehold.” I’d be like, “Absolutely not, under no circumstances.” So, yeah, that is why I did not do that match.

Best. Response. Ever. Am I right?

Dumas also notes that she has no desire to get back into wrestling.

    Great for Lita, she was dying laughing. I think she did really well by not accepting to go to this thing, I really think Molly Holly and Torrie should not accept offers like this anymore, I think they learned the lesson “WWE has 0 respect for great female wrestlers (Molly Holly)”, as for Jackie Gayda and the other-one-that-dresses-like-a-hoe, they probably liked beeing there so they can have more screen time and to put it on their curricular, besides they saw Kid Rock live, YAY for them!!

    Lita = GOD

    Dang…this is STILL being talked about?! “facepalm” Ai yi yi…

  • jcristo

    ummm i read that she has no desire to return to wrestling, but she is willing to do like a one shot appearance again…but anyways i am so happy for her turning it down…worst wrestlemania in history

  • knockout12

    WWE will make up for it at wrestlemania 26. Hopefully they have both Women’s and Diva Title defenses =)

    “WWE will make up for it at wrestlemania 26”
    I remember when I thought that last year :D and two years ago :D. I’m tired of wishful thinking.

  • mah

    everytime i read something fom divas who didnt take part i feel really bad for my torrie :(

  • MelinaMickieF3v3r

    Lamo Well said Lita she was most certainly right.
    Thanks God Lita & Trish wasnt part of it.

    Poor Molly & Torrie I bet they learned there lesson wwe is so dumb LOL

    Aparantly they didnt have time to show all the entrances but they had time to have other pointless match on teh card that i think no one cared for

  • jamboslilangel

    I totally love her, hell i have even met her. I was not laughing like she was i was disgraced, but i totally agree with Lita. The Wrestlemaina in a whole was a disgrace never mind the the diva match. The one’s i feel most sorry for is the former Diva’s , Torrie, Molly,Sunny etc.

  • redsoul

    Lita should have choosen better the words because she´s one that can talk much,because during her run in the WWE she played roles like the ones she´s criticizyng now.
    if she´s blamming the WWE about putting the Divas in this situation,very well…..otherwise she should shut up and stay in her corner.
