Last night (Mon. January 22, 2018) was one of the biggest episodes of Monday Night RAW history, as the company celebrated 25 years of the weekly program.
Several top stars were in attendance for the event including The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels, Jim Ross, Jerry "The King" Lawler, and so many more. WWE even took time to recognize some of the greatest women in the company's history.
Names such as Terri Runnels, Michelle McCool, Torrie Wilson, Maria Kanellis, Trish Stratus, and more were brought out and received a standing ovation for all the work they put in for the company over the years.
One woman in particular missing from the group, which WWE fans were expecting and hoping for, is WWE Hall Of Famer Lita. Lita has done work with WWE in the past, and fairly recently as well, so it was expected she'd be in attendance for RAW 25.
Unfortunately it seems that WWE failed to invite Lita to be a part of the event. She took to Twitter to reveal that she wasn't invited by WWE to attend RAW 25:
This sparked outrage by fans on Twitter, who were fuming after finding out WWE didn't invite the former "Team Xtreme" member:
Lita has accomplished a ton in her WWE career, winning the WWE Women's Championship Tournament back in 2006, winning the WWE Women's Title four times, and getting inducted into the Hall Of Fame in 2014.
She was also involved in one of the most interesting storylines in WWE history, involving her real life love triangle with Edge and Matt Hardy. Over the years Lita has appeared on several WWE panels before shows and has been involved with the company in some way, shape, or form.
For Lita to be left out of the loop in regards to RAW 25 is truly an injustice, hopefully there are now serious issues between her and the WWE.
What are your thoughts on Lita saying she wasn't invited to RAW 25 to celebrate with her fellow women's professional wrestling pioneers? Do you think that there's some heat between Lita and the company as a result? And why do you think she ultimately wasn't invited to be a part of RAW 25?
