In January 2018 Lita returned to the ring participating in the first women's Royal Rumble match in history, being eliminated by Becky Lynch. On October 28, 2018 she participated in Evolution PPV, the first pay-per-view event exclusively dedicated to female wrestlers, doing the opening match paired with the former rival Trish Stratus against Mickie James and Alicia Fox, accompanied by Alexa Bliss.
Just three days before the event, on October 25, it was announced that Bliss was pulled off the match due to a concussion she suffered beforehand and she was replaced by Alicia Fox. At the event on October 28, Lita and Trish defeated James and Fox after Stratus pinned James.
The next night on Raw, in a 10-women tag team match, Lita, Trish, Natalya, Sasha Banks and Bayley defeated James, Fox and the Riott Squad. In March 2020, Dumas, along with Christy Hemme and Gail Kim, announced "KAYFABE", a new wrestling show inspired by true events which blends scripted drama with pro wrestling.
On the latest edition of Women’s Wrestling Weekly, Lita revealed which woman should be added to the WWE Hall of Fame: “Chyna, by herself. Chyna. I’m going to say yes just because I want to put it out there.
For me, personally, I’d add Molly Holly, she inspired me a lot, and she’s a great person and that is important to me. At that time, there were, for someone to be in WWE and meet an indie girl and go out of her way to help someone, that always stayed with me forever and I was like, I tried to pass that along and certain people, the way they handle situations and the way they are with fans, her and Kurt Angle are the two for me that I admire a lot for the human beings that they are”.
