Although her appearance on Raw this past Monday was just a cameo, WWE has made a play to bring Lita (real name Amy Dumas) back on a more permanent basis in recent months.
PWInsider‘s Mike Johnson reports: “Dumas has NOT signed a new deal with WWE and she isn’t returning to the company, although they have made overtures to her in recent months about it.”
Dumas has been surfacing a lot lately, announcing plans to open a restaurant in Atlanta, star in a movie with Trish Stratus and film a television pilot for a stage show she’s in.
Thoughts: While I wouldn’t expect her to come back, I do find it interesting that WWE wants her back as the only other time that I can think of a former Diva returning to full time is Sable back in 2003 and that was a rare case. In a recent interview, Amy noted that she was interested in wrestling again ‘for fun’, so perhaps she could come back for a storyline. I don’t see her accepting a full time return like Chris Jericho did a few years ago, however. (EDIT: Oops, forgot Gail Kim also made a rare return to WWE.)
