WWE Hall Of Famer Lita Reveals Company Threatened To Fire Her If She Didn't Partake In Live Sex Celebration
| Last updated
Lita has revealed WWE threatened to fire her if she refused to partake in a live sex celebration on Monday Night Raw.
The segment, which came a night after Lita's then-boyfriend Edge had become WWE champion by cashing his Money in the Bank contract on John Cena at New Year's Revolution.
It saw Lita and Edge strip off and get frisky in the middle of the ring while thousands of fans in the arena watched. Despite its controversy, the segment brought Raw's highest TV ratings for over a year.
Edge and Lita were interrupted by Ric Flair, who was attacked after he said he could do better than the Rated-R superstar and came down to the ring.
Cena would then go after Edge before performing his finishing move on Lita, who suffered a wardrobe malfunction in the episode.
15 years on from the segment, the WWE Hall of Famer, real name Amy Dumas, has claimed she was under intense pressure to partake.
Speaking on her official Twitch channel, the 45-year-old spoke of how she was uncomfortable with going through it. Cena, Edge and other crew members tried to stop but a stubborn Vince McMahon was not having it.
As a result, Lita was told she would be let go if she refused.
Lita, one of the greatest female performers in WWE history, retired later that year after a bout with Mickie James at Survivor Series.
Her final run saw her receive chants of "hoe" and "slut" after her alleged real-life affair with Edge, Adam Copeland, was turned into an angle.
She has made semi-regular appearances for the company and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014.
