This week, we’re asking this: Lita‘s appearance on Raw has us wondering: how would you book a return for her? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!
Our Two Cents
Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Erin giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Erin | For it to have the biggest impact, I think any return by Lita should take place around WrestleMania. Yes, yes, I know Trish Stratus did the same thing last year, but I think a match involving Lita could help lend buzz to the card’s Diva match. This match would inevitably involve Beth Phoenix, especially if she manages to hold onto the Divas Championship until then. I definitely think there’s something that could build from Lita’s interaction with Kelly Kelly during the Slammys. I’m thinking that if Beth renewed her feud with Kelly (the first “Barbie” stuck in DOD’s crosshairs) and a feud was established running up to WrestleMania, Lita could be a wild card in it, with the DOD provoking her by questioning her legacy and integrity in associating herself with someone like Kelly. Driven by that doubt, Lita would show signs of being both heel and face, her actions unpredictable, and when she is booked as the referee for a Beth/Kelly Divas Championship match at WrestleMania, it will make the outcome that much less predictiable: will Lita stay true to her babyface roots or will the serious wrestler in her hesitate to allow Kelly to win the Divas Title again?
Your Two Cents
|Ashley Walker | I would have Lita be a mystery partner for Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox at a PPV against Beth Phoenix, Natalya, and Kaitlyn (if her heel turn ever happens). Then have her feud with Beth, who would still be holding the Divas Title.|
|@BeckieBate | She could have a rivalry with Beth Phoenix after the whole Slammy Awards thing and they could build it from there. She could then turn on Kelly Kelly, join the Pin-Up Strong movement and then she could bring the Women’s Title back.|
|Giovany Soto | TLC – Kelly Kelly and AJ vs DOD… Katilyn interrupts match, fakes to go after Beth and instead knocks out AJ. Referee disqualifies DOD. They begin to attack KK and AJ… Eve Torres and Alicia Fox attempt for the save but unsuccessful because the Brie & Nikki Bella‘s attack from behind. Lita theme song is played as she double clotheslines the Bellas, runs into the ring and takes on the DOD and Katilyn. In a dream but would be exciting to see!|
|Josue Guzman | First thing that would need to change is the Divas of Doom losing streak! Beth and Natalya are dominate heels and can easily take over the Diva’s division. Have them prove that they are truely pin-up strong by beating the hell out of a new victim every week, possibly putting them out of on injury. Then one night on Raw, have Beth and Natalya speak on how there are currently no Divas strong enough to take them on. Lita’s music plays and Lita appears then makes her way down the ring and reminds Beth that she is the original pin-up strong Diva. An insulted Beth attacks Lita, who manages to fight back but is then attacked by Natalya. Following week Lita challenages D.O.D but this time with another pin-up strong Diva as a partner, Trish Stratus. The two teams feud until finally meeting at Wrestlemania.|
|Ozzy Valentine | Next week on RAW. Beth and Natalya come out to talk about how they were snubbed, even WWE.com agrees. Kelly is a joke and the bigger joke is Lita coming out to rais her hand and encourage K2. Lita was wise to not get hostile w the DOD and just like Trish Stratus, the real reason Lita retired is because she is afraid of The Glamazon and Nattie Hart. Each week they continue to dominate the Barbies until Lita makes a memorable comeback laying out Nattie with a DDT and Beth with the Twist of Fate.|
|@xAJLeeNerdx | My return angle for Lita would be DOD cutting a promo about how they were robbed at the Slammys and that Lita should be ashamed of herself for giving an award to a Barbie doll after all the things Lita did for the Divas Division and later talk about how they used to look up to her and now they lost respect for her. Then K2 comes out and tell Beth & Nattie to stop the complaining and do something about! After a 10 seconds staredown, Beth and Nattie attacks Kelly Kelly then Natalya puts Kelly Kelly in the Pin-Up Strong submission while Beth Phoenix is telling Kelly Kelly ro cry. About 1 minute after watching K2 suffer, Lita theme song plays! Lita runs to the ring and beat the living hell out of DOD.|
