Well it’s only been a few hours since the news broke, but already the Internet has exploded with speculation as to which ‘blasts from the past’ will take part in WWE’s commemorative 25 Diva battle royal at WrestleMania 25.
Well one of the Divas that WWE will no doubt approach for this match-up is former Women’s Champion, Lita real name, Amy Dumas. I can confirm that Lita will be in Houston the weekend of WrestleMania… but for a prior engagement. The former Diva and Luchagors singer is set to appear at Booker T’s Legends of Wrestling FanFest on April 3rd.
Dumas’ involvement in the FanFest may hinder her chances at appearing at WrestleMania. Big story on the wrestling news sites this week is that WWE is possibly sabotaging Booker T’s convention by trying to book some of his top tier stars to come along to the WWE festivities. One such example is Torrie Wilson, who was scheduled to appear at the FanFest but pulled out in order to be part of WrestleMania weekend. Looks like WWE is telling the stars, “It’s one or the other.”
However, Lita remains listed on the FanFest’s official website as a guest, which could mean a deal couldn’t be worked out between her and WWE.
As I noted earlier today, I’m guessing WWE will reach out to their Alumni including Trish Stratus, Lita, Torrie Wilson, Victoria, Molly Holly, Sunny and Mae Young. It’ll be interesting to see if we get any shockers in there, such as Sable or Stacy Keibler, though those two seem unlikely.
