-- According to SuperLuchas.net, Matt Hardy is reportedly trying to persuade TNA Wrestling officials to hire former WWE Diva Amy "Lita" Dumas so he can work a storyline with her.
During an interview last October, Dumas expressed interest in returning to the squared circle "for fun," albeit not on a full-time basis. She was also broached on the subject of Hardy, to which she snarked, "Oh my god, what happened to that guy?" Dumas added that she feels he has maturity issues, but also acknowledged his professionalism during their 2005 feud.
