WWE News: Lita Slams the Current State of WWE's Women Division, Hints at Return

Interesting footage has emerged of former WWE diva Amy "Lita" Dumas criticizing the current state of WWE's women division.

In the clip, which was taken as the former WWE Women's Champion participated in WrestleMania's Axxess Q&A session last week and can be seen here, Lita praised the hard work of current female wrestlers like Divas Champion Beth Phoenix, Natalya Neidhart and Eve Torres, but laments it's a "bummer" to see where the division has gone from the days of her and Trish Stratus.

It's hard to just pick one person out. Definitely Beth and Nattie have been doing some awesome stuff, as far as actually wrestling stuff. Eve's been stepping it up. I think there's definitely potential as far as the women's division goes, but as of right now, it's a bummer to see where the women's division has gone after me and Trish came in, and really kicked ass and really elevated where women's wrestling was.

Lita, who left WWE in late 2006 after a successful six-year run to pursue outside interests in music and acting, hinted she may return to the promotion to rejuvenate their struggling women's division, either on-screen or backstage.

"I don't know what needs to happen. If I need to come on in there, and push it back where it needs to go," she told the crowd as they cheered uproariously at the prospect of her returning. "If that's what needs to happen, you know, then we'll see."

She then went on to mention "teaching a class" and possibly training some of the other, more inexperienced women and help them get a better grasp of wrestling.
