There is no doubt that Lita is 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 Lita didn’t think she would challenge Becky Lynch at all.

The WWE Hall of Famer returned 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.

For the past few weeks, Becky Lynch has been engaged in a feud with the WWE Hall Of Famer. It started a while ago on Monday Night RAW as Lita challenged her for a RAW Women’s Title match, which Lynch promptly accepted.

While speaking with Alistair McGeorge of The Metro, Lita revealed how shocked she was when she came to know about facing Becky Lynch. This is because Lita expected to square off against Charlotte Flair.


“Nothing was discussed [before the Rumble]! But honestly, I felt like maybe some powers that be had some plans, but I didn’t ask. I was, like, ‘You know what? I’m just going with this, I’m gonna just roll with whatever’s happening. If I know, I might overthink.’ When they came to ask me if I wanted to challenge Becky, I thought they were gonna ask if I wanted to challenge Charlotte – but I had no idea.”

Bianca Belair also wants Becky Lynch to win the RAW Women’s Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber on February 19th. It remains to be seen how Lita will fare in the highly anticipated match.
