Lita and Stone Cold Steve Austin Discusses Edge and Lita’s Rated-R Era

Edge and Lita had a controversial yet successful partnership with Edge in the Ruthless Aggression Era. When WWE got Matt Hardy, who was Lita’s ex-boyfriend, involved, the feud caught many eyes and their ‘affair’ storyline caused discomfort behind the scenes. Nevertheless, the particular storyline was a little over the top, when we look from a PG era point of view.

However, while discussing that era with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Lita talked about how it was weird for her. Austin asked, ” When I look back at a lot of your career, we’ll get into a little bit of the Rated- R stuff but not dwell there. You were placed in some of the most difficult situations I’ve ever seen anybody placed in. Would you agree or would say, Steve, you’re completely wrong?”. Lita nodded, saying, ” Oh man, yeah, I would agree.”

Further, Stone Cold said, “But you always weathered the storm and made it through. Maybe not that you wanted to, but you did. And I have always thought you were tough and cool and we have had our friendship. If anybody’s earned her stripes, it’s you.” In order to fit in the storyline with Edge, Lita had to become a heel and change her whole tone and attire.
