Lita is most certainly one of the pioneers of women’s wrestling in the pro wrestling world. She has paved the way for future generations of female pro wrestlers. It seems she was nervous about her Royal Rumble announcement as well.
The WWE Hall of Famer made her return to WWE television last month, where she laid out Charlotte Flair. She also competed in the Women’s Royal Rumble match and had a terrific performance that fans certainly enjoyed.
While speaking on Ring the Belle, Lita admitted that she was apprehensive about her WWE Royal Rumble announcement, but fan support certainly helped with her confidence.
“I will tell you, I was apprehensive when the WWE revealed they were going to announce the people in the Royal Rumble prior. But honestly, everyone’s reaction gave me that much more confidence. So please be loud like everywhere. Be loud online, bother me, bombard me. Because each comment, it gives me a tiny bit more confidence to know that I can go out there and do this.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Lita at WWE Elimination Chamber on February 19th. It remains to be seen how Lita will fare in the highly anticipated match.
