In a move many predicted, Lita has been named the newest inductee into the 2014 class of the WWE Hall of Fame. Lita, one of the highlights of Attitude and Ruthless Agression Eras, was the no-brainier after last years induction of Trish Stratus.
While her inclusion is very deserved, her young age (38), speaks more to the state of Diva’s, aka Women’s wrestling today. Lira has been retired since 2006 after a lengthy career of seven years. SEVEN years. Many NXT superstars including El Generico ( Sami Zayn), have been wrestling for longer than Lita”s whole career. That is not to say that Lita didn’t contribute. She was the yin to Trish’s yang. She was the hot chick bad girl. Still, like all women’s wrestlers, her shelf life is short. Unlike their males counterparts, women don’t have long careers in sports entertainment , which is a shame.
Lita’s inclusion continues the solid Class of 2014. With her announcement, we can now put to rest the horrific Stacy Keibler rumors and enjoy celebrating a spectacular Diva.
My full post on Lita will come out in the next week. In the meantime, take a look at some sex appeal from Lita
