Lita returned to WWE television on January 14th in a SmackDown angle involving Charlotte Flair. The Hall of Famer was recently announced as a competitor in the women’s Royal Rumble match. It was Lita’s first appearance on SmackDown in twenty years.
WWE fans were given a long list of returning veterans for the Rumble. The Bella Twins and even Impact Wrestling Knockouts champion Mickie James are coming back to compete in the match. Many believed Lita’s appearance would be a one-off.
It sounds like Lita will have one last run as a regular wrestler. Lita expressed her desire to have one final go in WWE. Dave Meltzer confirmed the possibility in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter of a lengthier stay.
“Amy “Lita” Dumas, 46, was announced last week for the rumble and debuted on Smackdown on 1/14 doing an angle with Flair. She talked about coming in for a last run. It did come across like she’s back as a regular for the short-term as a wrestler and not just doing the Rumble and being gone like most of the women. The injury to Banks and quitting of Storm did make them short babyface women for Flair since Naomi, the top one pushed, is obviously building to a match with Deville.”
Many of the other WWE superstars who are coming back will likely make just the one appearance. Lita is hoping for much more. One of the most beloved stars in the history of the company is hoping for just one more shot.
The WWE Universe can’t wait to see what Lita has in store. If she has her way, she’ll be sticking around a while. Time will tell how Lita’s final story in WWE unfolds.
