Since her retirement from WWE in 2006, Lita has made a lot of indy appearances, as a guest referee mostly, but has never been involved physically in a match. She appeared at WWE 1000th episode of Raw in July 2012, defeating Heath Slater with a moonsault and the help of many legendary wrestlers.

Neither Amy Dumas, aka Lita, nor Maryland Championship Wrestling has confirmed that this may be a one-time appearance or the beginning of a longer and more physical collaboration.
