Lita appeared on this week’s SmackDown making it the first time that the WWE Hall of Famer has been on the blue brand in nearly 20 years. She is set to enter the 2022 Royal Rumble match in just two weeks on Jan. 29.
Introduced to the ring as a trailblazer and one who has smashed the glass ceiling, Michael Cole was in the ring to interview the former four-time Women’s Champion. Lita went over her accomplishments in her career including a lot of first for the women.
Despite being in the first Royal Rumble match for the women back in 2018, Lita didn’t have these opportunities during her time with the company. With that being said, she feels that she has one more run in her and she wants to win the Rumble match and go on to main event WrestleMania.
It was at this point that the SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair joined the conversation. She took over the interview from Cole and decided to interview Lita herself. Flair referenced Lita’s age and how she didn’t know this was Flash Back Friday. She promises to be the one to throw Lita over the top rope to eliminate her in the rumble to end Lita’s hope for a final run.
After bringing up that she defeated Trish Stratus at SummerSlam in 2019, Lita faked a punch to the face of Flair. The Queen hid her face from what she thought was coming only to be hit with a Twist of Fate instead. Lita left the ring and headed up the ramp to end the segment.
