WWE Hall of Famer Lita returned to SmackDown last night’s show from Omaha, her first bruise appearance in nearly 20 years.
The decision to bring Lita to SmackDown was a last-minute idea, according to PWInsider. The idea was approved Thursday, and WWE booked her travel plans the same day.
SmackDown saw Michael Cole interview Lita in the ring. She noted that most days she is happy with her career, until recently when she thought about how she never got a chance to win a Royal Rumble Match. She added that she feels she still has one more run in her so she will win the Royal Rumble and then headline WrestleMania 38. Cole continued the interview until SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair interrupted, took the microphone and dismissed Cole from the ring.
Flair and Lita shot at each other on the microphone, where Flair promised to end Lita’s “little run” and throw her out of the ring on The Rumble. Lita compared Flair to a Tonya Harding look-a-like and made jokes about how big her head is. Flair boasted of breaking Lita’s best friend, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, at SummerSlam 2019, forcing her to retire, saying she would do the same against Lita at The Rumble. Lita then beat Flair. Flair returned to go after her, but Lita kicked her and dropped her with a fateful turn for a big pop. Lita then posed in the corner for fans as Flair crawled back on his feet.

Lita has not fought since taking part in a 10-women rookie match in the October 29, 2018 issue of RAW, which came one night after she and Stratus defeated Alicia Fox and current Impact Knockouts champion Mickie James by Evolution.
Lita will compete in the 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match later this month in St. Louis. Louis. You can click here for the current Rumble card.
