WWE Evolution: Hall of Famer Lita coming out of retirement to fight Mickie James at WWE's first-ever women's pay-per-view

The 43-year-old has not fought in singles competition for 12 years but will compete next month at Evolution, the first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view.

Lita, real name Amy Dumas, ironically defeated James at Survivor Series in 2006 in what was effectively her goodbye match as she hung up her wrestling boots.

The Hall of Famer broke into WWE in 1999 and shot to prominence as manager of the Hardy Boyz before going on to become one of the pioneers of the women’s division.

She won the WWE Women’s Championship on four occasions and battled Victoria in the first female Steel Cage match.

Lita, who became one of the company’s top faces while in a relationship with Edge in the mid-noughties, returned to WWE for the 100th episode of Raw in 2012 to squash Heath Slater.

She also competed in the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match in January, throwing both Mandy Rose and Tamina over the top rope before Becky Lynch eliminated her.

Lita is the latest legendary name to be confirmed for the pay-per-view.
