This past Sunday, Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, hosted its first professional wrestling event ever, the Legends of Wrestling. Just like the name of the event indicates, the show featured several legends within professional wrestling that have left their mark on the sport. One of those legends is former four-time Women’s champion and WWE hall of Famer Amy “Lita” Dumas. Since retiring from WWE in 2006, Dumas has taken on a variety of projects, including her band the Luchagors, hosting a radio show, and more. Here are a few highlights from an interview she did.
On appearing at the Legends of Wrestling Show:
“It’s great and it’s fun to mix the historic pastime of baseball and mixing that with wrestling fans and being here at the stadium,” said Dumas. “It’s just a really fun event, there’s a lot of energy in it and it’s something different that the fans haven’t gotten to experience before.”
On the NXT women’s division:
“Since I left, I felt we got a bit of a downslope but the NXT girls, you know, really got what it takes to see it go in the direction that is should, so I’m definitely excited to see that”
On returning to the ring:
“I mean, I’m gearing up for Tough Enough training right now, so, I wouldn’t rule anything out and I’ll say anything is possible”
