Can people please stop acting like Lita was somehow worth a damn in the ring? Her moonsault alone almost knackered everyone and nearly killed herself because she didn’t even do it right, she just flung herself back. She is only remembered fondly because of the Hardy connection, her looks, and the fact that she was SLIGHTLY better than the trash women’s division at the time. Ivory was the best worker in that division. Watching Becky carry Lita through this is hard.
Ivory was ok but be serious what was her finisher? Not memorable at all if anyone Molly Holly was the best in ring to me that molly go round was dope and she was very versatile like when she dyed her hair dark and went heel
