WWE Hall Of Famer Lita was recently interviewed by Planeta Wrestling to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Lita is currently preparing to make her in-ring return at the upcoming WWE Evolution pay-per-view. The PPV will be WWE’s first-ever all-female show.
Lita is returning to face fellow female professional wrestling pioneer and current Raw star Mickie James. While speaking to Planeta Wrestling, Lita discussed her former Team Xtreme faction and who she thinks on today’s roster has the potential to be the modern-day version of the team.
Team Xtreme consisted of Lita and The Hardy Boyz, Matt and Jeff Hardy, who aligned as a unit in 2000. Lita would go on to be a successful singles competitor in the women’s division, while The Hardy Boyz are recognized as one of the greatest tag teams of all time. Lita revealed who on WWE’s current roster she thinks has the most potential to have a Team Xtreme-esk rise:
“I’d really love to see that pairing, it was so dynamic. There’s so much you can do with a tag team and a woman especially when there’s another trio involved,” said Lita. “I love seeing the aspect of a trio as we had such fun matches with Test, Albert and Trish and Team Xtreme.
“They could create a lot of pairings with another female for an opponent. They got to a little bit of that when it was Cesaro, Tyson Kidd and Natalya. Then Naomi and The Usos make a great team and as far as athleticism and excitement to watch, I’d go with that. I’d say The Usos and Naomi could be the modern-day Team Xtreme.”
