During an appearance on Making Their Way To The Ring with Lilian Garcia, WWE Hall of Famer Lita talked about why she cheated on Matt Hardy with Edge. Below is their conversation:
Lita: I knew Matt.. you know…I met him at an independent show. Until I was in the WWE we became pretty tight, but honestly it was the bond on the love of chasing our dream. So that was our main bond always. Sure we had good banter, we got along and never argued.
I remember when I broke my neck and I was at home he’s on the road and they’re doing their thing, it was the first chance I had a chance to reflect. From the moment I decided I wanted to be a wrestler till the time I broke my neck. I didn’t think about anything except what’s the next baby step I can do to take forward to progress my career, to increase my chances of doing all the things I want to do.
That’s what I was thinking about and as was Matt for a much longer time. So it was a great thing to bond on. It was a great creative – “What do you think about this finish? What do you think about this gear?” and I mean that part of it was 100% fulfilling.
But I do remember when I broke my neck and everything came to a screeching halt for a second and I had a moment to reflect on accomplishing like – Whoa you did that for a minute there. And then I also had a second to realize there was anything outside of the wrestling industry because every and all things pertain to only that and that’s the only way people are gonna be successful is to just dive in 100%. I was forced to have to see what else was out there and just reflect.
So I remember having this moment that…. I wasn’t in an argument with Matt. We were slightly disconnected while I was at home recuperating because he was still a hundred percent into his career and I was 100% out of it at that moment because I had to be. And I remember thinking – yeah we’re not gonna be together when our careers are over because that is our bond. The way we view life, our interests don’t really align.
It was so weird because I was like – “Okay so now that I know that, should we split up or….? But I love him and I love our time together. So no. But I can’t see growing old with this person”. It was weird. It was weird, but I think it’s okay you can have awesome great chapters and learn from people and knowing that they’re not gonna…. they’re not yours forever and they may be two months from now or two years from now and that’s okay. But as I said, I didn’t know what do I do with this information that I just came to….
So when Adam and I started to bond on such a deeper level as well as having the creative outlet with our careers and stuff, both of us, we were kind of like – Oh sh*t! Like once we started to realize we were more than just two bros just hanging out. So the hard thing that has always been with this time period is we realized we were going down a path that we shouldn’t and what I mean by that is mentally.
So we’d kissed finally and freaked out. And around that same time I tore my ACL and I was gonna be away. So Matt was off the road. Adam was on the road and I said, “Hey, you know what? Let’s take this as an opportunity. We need to just be in our own worlds and evaluate. Don’t do anything for me. I’m not gonna do anything for you. I need to figure out what is right for my world.
