of the most wekk-known female wrestlers in the history of the professional
wrestling business. Of course, I'm speaking of Amy "Lita" Dumas of the Luchagors!

a pleasure for us to bring to you!
Amy "Lita" Dumas
- The Wrestling Epicenter welcomes a very special guest.
Lita stops by to speak with us about her music career and her past in the
- We start by asking Lita about having to drop that identity
and go by her real name, Amy Dumas, and go on tour with her band. She says
not many of the wrestling fans have discovered the band yet.
- The name for her band came about with the interest
of mixing her history with Lucha Libre & mixing it with a horror theme.
The name Luchagors was sort of a joke name they came up with,
but they decided to stick with it. The skeleton make up that Lita was seen
dressed in was actually done for a few Halloween shows that they did. They
had fun doing it, but it is not the regular look of the band.
- Being a former wrestler has given her some problems
in trying to get the bands name out there. She is very proud of her
wrestling past, but doesnt want to sell the band entirely off the fact
that she used to be a wrestler.
- Her bands genre isnt entirely exclusive to one
type music. They have several inspirations. She describes it as Punk
rock with a metal drummer She then says that several members of the
band add their own inspirations to the band.
- The 1st record was produced by Rachel Bollan of Skid
Row, and she really liked working with him. He was willing to accept her
ideas while also offering his great knowledge. She says that=2 0now the band
is capable of doing much more on their own.
- She was in some bands before she got into wrestling,
but put it on hold once she got into wrestling saying that there is almost
no time to fully dedicate to wrestling and also have a band. But having a
music career is something shes always been interested.
- She would love to get the distribution from a big record
label, but says that it can complicate things a little bit, and she likes
working with Independent labels.
- She wouldnt be opposed to working with the WWE
in some way, whether it be doing someones entrance theme or performing
at a PPV. She says that some people would look down on the move, but also
feels she would also be able to introduce her music to a new audience.
- Amy is asked about pirating music to things like Napster.
She says it makes it hard to sell albums, but you can also use things like
Myspace to advertise yourself. She also says that a lot of the money is made
through touring on the road, which she enjoys.
- She wore a Luchagor T-shirt during her last match with
the WWE, but she says nobody from the office really noticed and there were
no sour grapes when she left.
- Trish got the storybook ending, and Lita says that
shes a little disappointed that she didnt get the same thing.
She says it hurt her feelings, and understands that she was a heel, but
doesnt understand what happened. She did show up at the 15th Anniversary
Raw show, and had fun there.
- Lita then talks about her experiences with Maryland
Championship Wrestling where she trained and did a few appearances after
leaving the WWE. She really liked working there.
- She says that life on the road as a wrestler is harder
than as a musician saying that there isnt a lot of freedom as a

but she says that the story was kind of exaggerated. It was just a flu and
she lost her voice, and it wasnt anything more severe than that.

on various figures from both wrestling and music like Vince McMahon, Trish
Stratus, Iggy Pop, Shane Morton, Joan Jett, Lillian Garcia, Team Xtreme,
and her former wrestler personality Miss Congeniality.

the medias treatment of the Chris Benoit situation. She says that a

that didnt have great success and were trying to get their name out
