Several current and former WWE Superstars and Divas congratulated Lita on Twitter on her Hall of Fame nod.
“There goes my plan to be the best looking @WWE Hall of Fame inductee. Congratulations Lita. Great talent & well deserved,” tweeted Jake “The Snake” Roberts, who will share the stage with her in New Orleans on HOF night.
Trish Stratus called Lita an innovator and a true icon in the wrestling industry while Mickie James said she has inspired so many including herself. Mick Foley, Tommy Dreamer, and others also chimed in to congratulate the former Women’s champion.
Lita wrote that it was Mark Carrano – who can be seen on Total Divas – who broke the news to her to tell her about being chosen to go in the Hall of Fame this year. She also wrote a letter to her fans following the announcement.
“So, here I am Class of 2014 Hall of Fame, the dumpster diving punk rock kid that was never supposed to make it, but with too much kid power to let anything get in my way, gearing up to give a speech and accept my position in front of the ultimate under dog of a city. It seems kind of like the best thing ever,” she wrote. You can read the full letter at http://theamydumas.com/hallofame.pdf
