WWE icon Lita, real name Amy Dumas, has commented on what she believes is the difference between Divas of her era and today’s female stars.

Lita says that the Attitude Era Divas — including but not limited to herself, Trish Stratus, Chyna and Ivory — were individuals, something the current era lacks.

Talking to WWE.com to promote the WWE ’13 video game, Lita said: “I think the women of The Attitude Era really did a good job at figuring out who they were and what they wanted to portray to the fans. So each woman was such an individual — you were never going to get Lita and Ivory confused. You’re not going to get the two confused, as opposed to now, is it the hot athletic girl with the short shorts on? No, it’s the other hot athletic girl with the short shorts on. It was about setting yourself apart.”

Lita also praised current Diva AJ Lee, reasoning that fans have been able to connect with her.

She added: “I think it’s interesting to see the Divas of today and to see who the fans are attaching to. Obviously, right now, it’s AJ Lee, who’s not the strongest; she’s not one of those classically hot chicks. But she sets herself apart, and you have emotion when she’s out there and you get a sense of who she is, and so I think that’s really cool to see the kid that wasn’t supposed to make it being the one that’s out there, and that’s who the fans want to know more about.”
