Amy Dumas is one of the few women in WWE who is generally respected for her ability as a wrestler. She came to a wide audience first in Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1999 as the valet for Danny Doring and Amish Roadkill, known as "Miss Congeniality." She left ECW for WWF (WWE) in late 1999.
Upon her arrival in WWF, she was placed as the valet for a lucha libre wrestler named Essa Rios. As her popularity rose, she was placed with the Hardy Boyz to become Team Xtreme her career skyrocketed along with Matt and Jeff during the WWF Attitude era.
While filming a guest appearance on the FOX TV series Dark Angel in 2002, she suffered a severe neck injury that required surgery. She returned as a color comentator on WWE Sunday Night Heat. She came back to in-ring action in September 2003.
For six years, she had had a real-life relationship with Matt Hardy, until Matt broke up with her in late February 2005. The split occurred because Lita became involved with fellow WWE superstar Edge. It is believed that Hardy's candid comments on the matter on his personal website were a factor in his being released by the WWE. On April 18, 2005, Lita's appearance in Madison Square Gardens was met with jeers and chants of "You screwed Matt!" by a significant section of the audience.
