WWE News: Lita quits the company
The WWE Hall of Famer's latest run with the company has come to an end
WWE Hall of Famer Lita has parted ways with the WWE, according to Jim Ross. The former WWE announcer revealed on Twitter that he had spoken to Lita, who confirmed the news of her departure from the company.
Here is the WWE Hall of Famer’s tweet:
It seems WWE’s pre-show panel is all set to miss the legendary superstar’s presence in the time to come. We had earlier reported about WWE removing Lita and Jerry ‘The King' Lawler from the pre-show panel. When it comes to 'The King,' backstage sources claim he’s still with the company. Both Lita and Jerry Lawler have been working for the promotion under a legend’s contract; which is a non-wrestling deal offered to veteran names.
After being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2014, the former Women’s Champion transitioned into a coach’s role in Tough Enough’s sixth season alongside Billy Gunn and Booker T. She was later absorbed into the creative team of the company as a writer under a full-time contract.
She was also used as a backstage liaison between talents and the management to facilitate a smooth flow of communication. Lita, who’s real name is Amy Dumas, made her television return on the pre-show of WrestleMania 32 to make a historic announcement.
She announced the retirement of the now defunct WWE Divas’ Championship and unveiled the new WWE Women’s Championship. Ever since the monumental appearance, she’s been a regular fixture on the pre-shows of pay-per-views, RAW and SmackDown.
Apart from her wrestling commitments, Lita is part of a band called The Luchagors. While her plans for the future are still under wraps and quite uncertain, a return to television can never be ruled out due to the unpredictable nature of WWE and pro wrestling as a whole.
We wish one the revolutionary superstar the best of luck on her future endeavors.
