Lita says there would be some fun matchups if she were to have more matches, continues to train

Former four-time women’s champion Lita has had a fantastic 2022 and one that has been a home run for fans. Not only did she participate in her second women’s Royal Rumble in January but she had her first singles match in nearly 16-years as she faced Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber last month. Since then, there has been no word on Lita continuing with another match but it has had many fans wanting more from the Hall of Famer.

While speaking to Corey Graves on his After the Bell podcast, Lita spoke about her past two months with WWE and where she is at now. She says she is continuing to train and stay in shape as it is part of her lifestyle. In addition, if she were to get another match, she is ready to seize that fifth title run.z

“I workout leisurely, like a lifestyle workout. Obviously, I shifted gears once I got the call for Rumble. I did decide that, my body feels better when I pull the leisurely down a little bit. I do want to continue to train, not actively for a championship, but knowing the way that WWE works, you get those opportunities a lot of times without notice. One thing I wish, is that I would have had a little bit more time to prepare. If I’m closer to being ready, my body already feels good, and if there is an opportunity to seize that fifth title run, I’m ready.”

She continues, “I’m honestly taking this all as it comes. I’d be stoked to do something else, whereas prior, I’d be like, ‘No, no, no.’ Now, I’m questioning, ‘were you being honest without yourself or that just how you felt then and this is how you feel now.’ I’m all about changing your opinion of don’t back yourself into a corner just because you said I’m done or not done.” [h/t – Fightful]

Since being in the Rumble match, Lita has vocally given credit to all the current incredible talent and feels there are so many possibilities of great matchups that she would enjoy. She feels it would be a cool cross-generational experience for not just the participants but the fans as well.

“It more so has to do with, being in the Rumble and the women I touched in there, so briefly, being like, ‘they’re really strong’ or ‘they’re really good.’ Seeing them inside the ringwork, vs from television, and seeing how deep and talented the roster is, there are so many possibilities of great matchups that I would enjoy and fans would enjoy. I wouldn’t say it’s Pandora’s box of ‘let me in there, anyone, anytime, let’s do this.’ We could think about this and there be some fun matchups that lead to this cool cross-generational experience, not only for the women in the locker room but fans too.”

Lita’s retirement match in 2006 at Survivor Series and how she retired has always been criticized by fans due to how she was treated on-screen after her last match. She touched on that during the interview and said how now she feels peace and it was a way to wipe the slate clean moving forward.

“It made me feel peace moving forward. So either if it’s not my last match, to be able to feel just like a clean slate going forward or if it is, I get asked so much, every interview ‘Talk about your last match and Cryme Tyme came out and did this show and stole your fake stuff…’ and to try to put a positive spin on that… ‘No, it was funny and I’m a heel’, we all know that’s not how I felt. That’s where we were then but here’s where we are now in the present is where it’s important to be able to say that with honesty feels really nice.”
