Few days ago, Pro Wrestling Sheet stated that Lita had been pulled from WWE’s pre-show announce team and signed to new WWE Legends contracts. Now Lita and Lawler were not included in the pre-show panel for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view, as UPI had noted, and neither Hall of Famer was present for this week’s Monday Night RAW pre-show. WWE then issued a statement to The Wrap confirming that Lawler would remain with the company.
Earlier reports might have claimed that she, just like Jerry “The King” Lawler, had been signed to a WWE Legends deal, with both shifting from pre-show analysis to occasional appearances. But legendary women’s wrestler Lita appears to be out of the WWE, according to a recent tweet from former WWE announcer Jim Ross.
Let us digress a bit into her private life; Lita reigned as a four-time WWE Women’s Champion who joined forces and later feuded with another future legend, Trish Stratus. Her time with the company, however, wasn’t without its share of controversy, as she had been involved in a real-life affair with Edge despite being in a relationship with Matt Hardy at that time.
From 2000 to 2006, Lita (a.k.a. Amy Dumas in real life) was one of WWE’s top female wrestlers, even then, she was still primarily recognized for her in-ring skill and willingness to take risks, and Lita was eventually inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2014.
That said, Jim Ross has suggested that the 41-year-old former Women’s Champion is no longer connected with WWE despite the Wrestling Observer‘s claim that she and Lawler have WWE Legends contracts. Ross described the reports on Lita’s WWE Legends deal as “erroneous,” and he cited the woman herself, saying that she’s “no longer with the company” without elaborating any further.
WWE Hall Of Famer Lita is “no longer with the company,” according to legendary wrestling commentator Jim Ross.
Lita, alongside fellow HOF’er Jerry The King Lawler had been taken off WWE TV programming, and now Ross has tweeted that Lita has fully left the company.
