Amy Christine Dumas best known by her stage name Lita, is a retired professional wrestler and WWE Diva active from 1999 to 2006.
After briefly working on the independent circuit and in Extreme Championship Wrestling, Dumas signed with World Wrestling Federation in 1999. Originally, she was paired with Essa Rios, but she achieved her greatest push alongside Matt and Jeff Hardy as Team Xtreme. Throughout her career, she won the WWE Women’s Championship four times. During her tenure with the company she became arguably the most popular Diva in the company’s history.
Dumas had an off-screen relationship with Matt Hardy, which ended in 2005 after an affair with Adam Copeland/Edge. WWE used the real-life drama between the trio as a storyline throughout 2005 and 2006, which led to Dumas becoming villainous on-screen. The relationship also led to the firing of Hardy in 2005, although he was rehired later that year. In February 2014, WWE announced that Lita will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania XXX.
After her retirement from wrestling in 2006, she formed the punk rock band The Luchagors. The band released their self-titled debut CD on September 11, 2007. She is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014.
