Lita joins new season of WWE Tough Enough as a trainer
USA Network and WWE announced today that WWE Superstar Chris Jericho will be the host of the highly anticipated series WWE Tough Enough, and will be joined by a panel of experts comprised of WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and WWE Diva Paige. The high-octane reality series premieres LIVE Tuesday, June 23, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on USA Network and around the world.
This season of WWE Tough Enough will combine the can’t-miss excitement of live television with reality-show drama, as WWE hopefuls vie for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the next WWE Superstar or Diva. Unlike anything on television today, the lightning-fast hour of entertainment and competition will include live results every week, giving fans worldwide the power to decide who stays and who goes the very same night. Each week, one cast member will be eliminated until one man and one woman are considered “Tough Enough,” with each earning a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract.
Throughout the competition, the contestants will be trained by WWE Legends Booker T, Billy Gunn and Lita. Contestants will also come face-to-face with WWE icons including WWE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon; Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque; Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon; and WWE Superstar John Cena, among others.
Can’t wait to join the panel on @WWE #ToughEnough. This is going to be a wild ride that I promise you don’t want to miss.

Amy teams with Pro Wrestling Tees for new merchandise
Do you like 60’s exploitation films, lucha libre, baseball and 80’s skateboard culture? Because I sure do. I’ve teamed up with Heather Bailey and the designers at Pro Wrestling Tees for a killer new merch shop. We have been back and forth all day in preparation of the launch. I’ve never been one for wearing my own shirts, but I may have to start breaking that rule, because these turned out cool.

Lita reveals her inductor for the WWE Hall of Fame
It’s official! Lita has announced her inductor into the WWE Hall of Fame and it is none other than her long time rival / best friend Trish Stratus! Trish will induct Lita into the Hall of Fame on April 5th, 2014 the night before WrestleMania XXX!
Here is what she tweeted:
It’s official! It’s going to be a #topbitches night at #HOF2014 with 50% of #TeamBestie inducting me, @AmyDumas it’s @trishstratuscom @WWE
TrishStratus.com also spoke to both ladies about the announcement:
After taking center stage on wrestling’s biggest stage last year, Trish Stratus returns to the Hall of Fame as a hall of famer AND inductor to her friend Amy Dumas aka Lita.
Dumas made it official when she phoned Trish during the 30 Years of WrestleMania podcast to ask her to do the honors in New Orleans.
TrishStratus.com reached out to both ladies for reaction.
“The timing of WrestleMania XXX and the 2014 HOF are really serendipitous,” Dumas said. “So many things in my life have come full circle. I look forward to reflecting on my career and accepting this honor with my bestie by my side.”
It will be a night to remember as ‘Team Bestie’, two women who revolutionized women’s wrestling, take the stage together.
On being asked by Amy, Trish says, “I’m honored to have been asked by Amy. The ups and downs of our careers have paralleled on so many levels and our friendship has been the constant through it all. And even more special to me has been our friendship as we embarked on life outside of WWE. I’m just thrilled to be a part of her moment!”
Trish & Lita together again for one special night. And you can witness it live on WWE Network the night before WrestleMania.
