Lita is a WWE Hall of Famer and has done a lot for the development of women’s pro wrestling in general. She had been a constant feature of WWE television for the past couple of months and fans were very happy about that fact. While Lita is away from WWE television right now, it appears Lita believes she is on bonus time after her retirement match with Becky Lynch last year.
Following her in-ring return back in 2018, Lita would go on to compete in two matches in 2022. This included her terrific performance in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match. After that, she squared off against Becky Lynch for the RAW Women’s Championship at Elimination Chamber 2022 but failed to beat Lynch.
While speaking with Graham GSM Matthews of Bleacher Report, Lita talked about her match with Becky Lynch and agreed with the fact that it would have been a great send-off match.
Lita would go on to state that she felt the match bout was a great retirement match that she did not expect whatsoever. Lita added that she believes she is on bonus time now after the match with Becky Lynch.
“I really felt that my match with Becky in Saudi Arabia felt like a really nice retirement match that I did not anticipate having that opportunity.
I felt really satisfied with the whole full circle moment of that, paving the way for women on the front end in the United States, going to when the relationship was established in Saudi Arabia, women weren’t allowed to come to the matches and then there were no women performing to a featured match where Becky and I were all over billboards all over the kingdom.
It felt really poetic and I felt happy with that match. I feel good with that. This just feel like bonus time.”
Lita is also off WWE television and fans might not see her for a long time. Regardless, only time will tell whether Lita will return to WWE again and have another program in the future.
