A WWE Hall of Famer wants to work with Rhea Ripley.
At WrestleMania 39, Rhea Ripley defeated Charlotte Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. This win cemented Ripley’s status as one of the top stars in WWE.
At the same event, WWE Hall of Famer Lita had her first WrestleMania match since 2002 when she teamed with Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus to defeat Damage CTRL in a six woman tag team match.
Speaking to Graham GSM Matthews of Bleacher Report, Lita was asked if she would have a proper retirement match following her return to in-ring action. She answered:
“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.”
When a potential match against the SmackDown Women’s Champion, Lita expressed her desire to face Rhea Ripley with her title on the line. She stated:
“She’s an incredible talent. I would love to work with her because it would really push me. It would push me beyond my comfort zone and I feel like I’ve been satisfied with what I’ve done in this chapter, but I would love to see how far I could take it.”
Lita was attacked by Trish Stratus on the April 10 episode of WWE Raw. This led to Trish cementing her heel turn with an attack on Becky Lynch later in the show.
