WWE Hall Of Famer Amy “Lita” Dumas recently spoke with the folks from Planeta Wrestling for an interview to promote the upcoming all-women’s WWE Evolution 2018 pay-per-view on October 28th, where she will return to the squared circle to face Mickie James. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On current WWE Superstars and if anyone on the current roster reminds her of the Team Xtreme group she was a part of with Matt and Jeff Hardy during the WWE Attitude Era: “I’d really love to see that pairing, it was so dynamic. There’s so much you can do with a tag team and a woman especially when there’s another trio involved. I love seeing the aspect of a trio as we had such fun matches with Test, Albert and Trish and Team Xtreme.”
On who could be the next Team Xtreme: “They could create a lot of pairings with another female for an opponent. They got to a little bit of that when it was Cesaro, Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Then Naomi and The Usos make a great team and as far as athleticism and excitement to watch, I’d go with that. I’d say The Usos and Naomi could be the modern-day Team Xtreme.”
Team Xtreme earned four championships while the trio was together, including three tag team titles for Matt and Jeff, as well as the women’s championship for Lita. Eventually Lita broke from the group and had long feuds with Trish Stratus and Mickie James among others in singles competition.
Lita has appeared in just two matches since her retirement match with Mickie James at WWE Survivor Series in 2006, one being an intergender match against Heath Slater at the RAW 1000 special, while the other was the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble match back in January. She will dust off her wrestling boots for a singles match against the same person she last competed in singles action in a WWE ring against, Mickie James, at the aforementioned WWE Evolution 2018 PPV.
WWE Evolution 2018 goes down from the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on Sunday, October 28th, airing live via pay-per-view and on the WWE Network.
