4-time WWE Women’s Champion and one of the most loved female Superstars in WWE, Amy Dumas, better known by her ring name Lita recently spoke with Nick Hausman in an interview for WrestleZone Radio. Lita was on the show to promote “The UFO SHo” on ASYTV.com but the most badass female Superstar from the Attitude Era also talked wrestling. The WWE Hall of Famer was asked for her thoughts on WWE going to Saudi Arabia for the Greatest Royal Rumble and as usual, the current WWE analyst did not hold back.
“So I understand that they are a business, a global business, and always looking to expand their global presence. However, I do feel it’s a direct conflict of interest with them maintaining any integrity or truth to the fact that they say that they would like to push forward women and their roles and their representation in the industry as anything remotely resembling an equal to a male.”
“Make the money, that’s fine, but don’t try to cover it up and be like, ‘Oh No, we are doing this because we would like to in the future be able to help progress their culture forward.’ No, you wanted money and that’s fine. You’re a business, businesses make money. That’s okay. From your perspective over there, I don’t own your business, so that’s ok. But, from a PR perspective, don’t try to be like ‘no no no, we’re doing it because we want to help progress that culture forward.’ No, it’s a direct conflict of interest, in my opinion.”
Lita last wrestled her WWE match at the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble in January, 2018 where she entered at #5, eliminated Tamina and Many Rose, last for 5:51 minutes before being eliminated by Becky Lynch.
