Hall of Famer Lita has commented on her WWE return, noting that she feels like she’s wrestling on ‘bonus time’.
After a brief return to the ring in 2018, Lita wrestled twice in 2022, competing in the women’s Royal Rumble match, before unsuccessfully challenging for Becky Lynch’s Raw Women’s Title at Elimination Chamber.
Speaking with Graham GSM Matthews of Bleacher Report, Lita agreed that this would’ve been a great send-off.
Explaining why she returned to the ring after this bout, Lita said:
“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 returned to the ring earlier this year to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship alongside Becky Lynch.
She lost the title in a match she wasn’t even a part of, with Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez defeating Lynch and Trish Stratus who was filling in for Lita.
