Lita, the high flying, trend setting WWE Diva and Superstar who changed the landscape of women’s wrestling with the WWE, has recently been announced as a WWE Hall of Fame 2014 inductee. Fans haven’t forgotten Lita and remember her for her time performing with Lucha Libre style during the Attitude Era, controversial relationships with the Hardy Boyz and Edge, and reigns with the WWE Women’s Championship. She has cemented her place in wrestling history as one of the most memorable female performers of all time. It is likely that she could possibly be in line for a Mattel WWE wrestling figure release now with her Hall of Fame induction. Time will tell, but some wrestling figure fans are already speculating on possible outfits.
Many wrestling fans are unfamiliar with Lita’s WWE debut as it seemed she was always a member of the Hardyz, but Lita actually debuted with Lucha Libre star Essa Rios in a shiny red wrestling top and pants. Her first chances to show off her luchadore style came during this time, wowing fans with amazing high flying maneuvers and incredible speed. A Mattel WWE debut figure of Lita would seem unlikely, but many fans during the Attitude Era have memories of her first appearance and the immediate impact she had on women’s wrestling, showing that anyone could perform in the ring in an incredible way. A Mattel WWE version of this Lita would offer an impactful debut figure.
Lita is perhaps best known for her time as WWE Women’s Champion and as a member of the Hardy Boyz, so her most likely Mattel WWE wrestling figure release would include a stylized look throwing back to her Hardy days. With either a mesh top, Women’s Championship or pants that include bottoms sticking out from underneath, Lita’s style was always apparent during her Hardy Boyz days and a Mattel WWE figure showcasing that would prove to be extremely sought after. If a signature Mattel WWE Lita was to be made, it would more than likely look something like this.
Possibly too risqué for a Mattel WWE wrestling figure given the WWE’s new PG direction, a ‘Rated R’ Lita would be anything but. Her time with Edge proved controversial but for many it created loads and loads of memorable moments, including one of the WWE’s highest rated segments of all time. The WWE Universe began to despise Lita and wished her away as Cryme Tyme bid her adieu with a ‘ho sale.’ A scantily dressed, cheaply outfitted Lita would make for a Mattel WWE wrestling figure that could add some crassness to any collection.
Now, as a future member of the WWE Hall of Fame, Lita no doubt is still in ring shape and could run with the best of today’s WWE Divas. With a wink, nod and a flip Lita could get back in to the ring like old times, and a Mattel WWE modern day, Hall of Fame version of Lita would make wrestling figure fans looking to deepen their current rosters happy with an irreplaceable, Hall of Fame free agent.
