E-Mail Question: : “How do you respond to all the bad press you and Edge have gotten? Do you feel bad?”
She says she does feel bad. She doesn’t sign autographs or go out to dinner because she doesn’t want to deal with all of it. She says she has ignored most of it and tried to get on with life. She says Matt is perfect at being a “Spin Doctor” by making himself look like the victim in every case.
E-Mail Question : “Did you think that your personal life would have had this much impact on fans at it has?”
She wouldn’t ever think she would ever be involved in any scenario like this. She says she is usually a strong person. She says she can’t control this situation, and it makes her feel like she doesn’t want to be around.
E-Mail Question: “How is your relationship with Jeff?”
She says she has spoken to Jeff twice after all this happened. She said his brother will have his back, and that is expected.
E-Mail Question: “Do you ever see you and Matt being friends or getting back together romantically?”
She said probably not but she said that she also didn’t expect to be sitting here now, so who knows.

Grisham asks if Matt is still on her mind. She says she does think of him and care about him. She says she has blocked out most of his rants to make it feel better.
Somebody called and told Lita she supported her besides his personal life. She says thank you but she can’t rely on a couple of loyal fans to make it go away. Grisham asks about what the fans say to Edge when they are out in public She says the internet thing is like road rage, where they have more guts behind their keyboard. She says people don’t have the balls to say anything to their face. Grisham asks about the chants. She says she can’t focus because the fans don’t know the half of it. Lita says she would change the past if she could, but she can’t. Lita said she apologized to Matt, but doesn’t feel that she needs to apologize to the Internet.

Matt Hardy calls!!!
Matt reminds Lita that New York is where she told him she loved him. He says he wants to hear her explain herself. Lita asks him what she wants him to know. Lita makes a remark about Matt’s Internet obsession. Lita says she didn’t like Matt blindsiding Edge. Matt says Lita’s life is only starting to become miserable, along with Edge.

She says he’s decided to make a break-up that happens off camera into forums. Matt says they are public people. Matt says he didn’t do anything wrong. Lita says it became public because of him. She doesn’t understand why he couldn’t have solved with her privately. She says she didn’t mean for her and Edge to happen.

Matt said that he was going to return because he “busted his ass off” to get back in a business he loves. He said Johnny Ace called him and said that he was released because they didn’t have a purpose for him. He said he didn’t buy it. He said WWE firing him was bullshit. Edge should have been fired along with Lita. Matt says he doesn’t want to be with her. He says that he had the best singles career on Smackdown! and he came to RAW just to be with her. He said his relationship with her was first, and wrestling was second. Matt says he will have retribution. Matt says he is warning her.
