- Lawler introduces the induction video for Lita and she will be tonight's first inductee.
- Lawler introduces WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus and out she comes to do the honors for Lita. Trish reveals Lita is the godmother of her child and says it's fitting. Or maybe it's fitting because how their careers have paralleled. She talks about how they debuted near each other and retired near the same time. Trish talks about Lita's career and gets a pop when she brings up Team Extreme. Trish says Lita was an equal member of that group. Trish talks about how Lita loves animals and other stuff away from wrestling. Trish introduces Lita, calling her her bestie. Trish says this is Lita's long dress debut, which is a big deal. Lita's theme hits and out she comes to a big pop.
- Lita thanks everyone for the moment and says she's super into it. A "thank you Lita" chant breaks out. Lita says she's ready to have some fun. She talks about wanting to become a wrestler and going to Mexico. She tells a story about calling a travel agent for a trip to Mexico. She says there was a travel warning not to travel there unless you had official business. She had official business - she was to become a professional wrestler. She brings up Arena Mexico and it gets a small pop from some fans in the crowd. She talks about the excitement of seeing that first lucha event in person and says we can all relate with WrestleMania XXX tomorrow. She goes on about working in Mexico and brings out a mask she kept from someone there. The crowd boos at one point but it sounds like it was something in the crowd or they wanted her to put the mask on. She gives a shout out to Rey Mysterio and talks about watching him. She talks about coming back to the States and trying to find Rey at a hotel after a wrestling event in Georgia. She says she didn't see Rey but she ran into Arn Anderson. She says Arn got her to meet Rey by giving her his hotel room number. She says Rey came out of the hotel elevator and didn't make her feel like an idiot for saying she was going to Mexico to become a wrestler. She says Arn then said she owed him a Miller Lite for making the meeting with Rey happen. Lita says she's a woman of her word and has two Miller Lites brought out for Rey and Arn. Trish and Lita take a shot of wheat grass. Arn toasts Lita and drinks his. It looks like Arn got both beers and the usher didn't give Rey his. They finally get Rey his beer. He and Arn toast Lita together to a big pop from the crowd. Lita then talks about spending 6 months in the original ECW. A huge "ECW" chant breaks out in the crowd. She also talks about working with Edge. She claims the most slut-tacular wedding dress in WWE history. She also talks about working with Kane and Snitsky. She talks about James Cameron personally picking her to be in the finale of Dark Angel and during filming, she got dropped on her head and knew something was wrong. She went back to work for WWE and doctors told her that her neck was broken. She brings out her bobblehead doll and says this happened at the same time the doll came out. There are more boos from the crowd but apparently it's because the big screen in the arena keeps going out. She talks about wanting to get advice from Steve Austin when the neck injury happened. Austin brought her down to Texas to go to the doctor with him and then have some BBQ in San Antonio. She wore an Austin 3:16 tank top into surgery. She says after that surgery, she went on to have many more successful years in WWE. Lita says she has a lit of thank you's and thanks Danny McDevitt from MCW, Christian York, Bob Mercury, Ace Steel, the Funkin' Dojo, Tommy Dreamer, who got a big pop and is in attendance, Lisa Marie Varon, who is also in the crowd. Lita brings up their steel cage match. She says she's proud to share the locker room with the group of girls she worked with.
