WWE Hall of Famer Lita has discussed her pro-wrestling future, discussing the possibility of a return to the ring.
Lita’s match with Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at WWE Elimination Chamber was her first singles bout since 2006.
Speaking on WWE After The Bell, Lita noted that she didn’t get a lot of time to prepare for her appearances ahead of this year’s Royal Rumble. Noting that she still trains casually, Lita said:
“I workout leisurely, like a lifestyle workout. Obviously, I shifted gears once I got the call for Rumble. I did decide that, my body feels better when I pull the leisurely down a little bit. I do want to continue to train, not actively for a championship, but knowing the way that WWE works, you get those opportunities a lot of times without notice.
“One thing I wish, is that I would have had a little bit more time to prepare. If I’m closer to being ready, my body already feels good, and if there is an opportunity to seize that fifth title run, I’m ready.”
On the possibility of another in-ring return, Lita noted:
“I’m honestly taking this all as it comes. I’d be stoked to do something else, where as prior, I’d be like, ‘No, no, no.’ Now, I’m questioning, ‘were you being honest without yourself or this is just how you felt then and this is how you feel now.’ I’m all about changing your opinion of don’t back yourself into a corner just because you said I’m done or not done.
“It more so has to do with, being in the Rumble and the women I touched in there, so briefly, being like, ‘they’re really strong’ or ‘they’re really good.’ Seeing them inside the ring, work, vs from television, and seeing how deep and talented the roster is, there are so many possibilities of great matchups that I would enjoy and fans would enjoy.
“I wouldn’t say it’s Pandora’s box of ‘let me in there, anyone, anytime, let’s do this.’ We could think about this and there be some fun matchups that lead to this cool cross-generational experience, not only for the women in the locker room but fans too.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 38.
