At one point, the WWE Hall of Fame opened up about his friendship with Lita and their matches.
“The connection, if you can imagine, there really wasn’t a woman doing her thing. But then there’s two women who are both in training, and they’re both signed at the same time, and we’re the same age. I remember speaking, and it was developing at the time and I was in Canada waiting for my visa. And we were like, “Oh my God, we’re going to do this. We communicated a bit and when we finally got started we were the new girls on the roster and really, the storylines were, “We’ve got these new girls, new characters. So the intrigues were about us. Of course we started together too, so we were always either the archenemy or [partners]. Obviously, our rivalry has been going on for decades. We have this dynamic because we are talking about the yin and yang of ourselves. That’s what I think the fans liked about us. They dug that. Dare I say it was a Rock-Austin dynamic in the ring. When we both walked in there, they were like, “Oh, we’re going to have something good. “
“We had the opportunity to develop as characters by also being valets. It’s kind of a forgotten art – valeting – because it’s a great way to establish characters. We had the opportunity to do the cross-gender work, which was huge. We had this match with her and Rock vs Me and Triple H. Stuff like that in the main event. Things that really spoke to the audience… I think a lot of that stuff helped us establish ourselves as characters, but we’re going through that as well. So we have these fantastic opportunities and these chances to change history, not that we knew at the time. But as if we were together. We were driving together, we were taking this trip together. Sharing this is obviously super special and yes we have kept in touch. She became my son’s godmother, I made her Max’s godmother just to say, ‘You really are family.’ There was a time, especially when I had Max, I had to bring him on our Team Bestie tour. And we were taking her on tour, so she got to know him. So it was like it made her part of the family. We talk pretty much every day, I would say.
