WWE announced on Monday Night Raw that Lita, Amy Dumas, will be inducted into the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame class. Dumas follows 2013 inductee Trish Stratus, “her bestie,” as she referred to Stratus in a statement on her website today, into the Hall.
Dumas noted the honor of joining Stratus in the Hall of Fame.
“I know how hard she had worked, I watched her develop as a wrestler, talent, and woman over the years. I know fans were excited to see our generation of women represented in the HOF. Often in the same breath, I heard support from fans expressing their desire for me to join the ranks of my peers as well. I had hoped at some point I would, but didn’t realize it would be just around the corner,” Dumas said.
Dumas noted that she is not exactly the type of person to expect the best, but rather, tries to prevent the worst.
“I appreciate that not every day is the best day ever. At this point in my life, I can reflect on everything I’ve ever been through and know that I have learned, grown, and evolved from it,” Dumas said. “I can appreciate the good and the bad and derive an equal appreciation from each event. For every weird Texas Chainsaw BBQ show, there was a run in at a TLC match at the Astrodome. For every full body cry I’ve had, I have had uncontrollable laughter.
“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 underdog of a city. It seems kind of like the best thing ever,” Dumas said.
