Since 2010, Diva Dirt has honored the most impactful women in wrestling with its Legacy Award. Trailblazers Trish Stratus, Jacqueline, Jazz and Manami Toyota have been singled out for their contributions to women’s wrestling, each in her own way changing the business for the better.
In the same vein, Diva Dirt is honored to present its 2015 Legacy Award to the Queen of Extreme herself: Lita!
This WWE Hall of Famer, fearless and unapologetically different, broke the mold, forever changing the definition of “female wrestler”. She captured the imaginations of countless fans and served as inspiration for many of the wrestlers competing today, both male and female.
Diva Dirt’s Chris spoke to Lita about receiving the honor, getting her take on the future of women’s wrestling, the #GiveDivasAChance movement, the legacy she’s left behind and more:
As Lita’s legacy can be felt in every corner of the wrestling business, we felt there was no more fitting way to commemorate this moment than to ask some of the brightest stars on the scene today to share how her legacy shaped their careers.
