The appearance on WWE Smackdown by one of the all-time greats took place in order to proceed with the builds for Royal Rumble 2022 edition which will go down with a star-studded lineup. Lita will be one of those names who received a huge pop upon showing up on WWE TV from the fans in attendance of the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Hall of Famer declared that she has one run left in her and hence she wants to win the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match to go on to challenge for a Title at WrestleMania 38. WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair interrupted her promo and wondered how Lita will deal with the humiliation after she loses to her at the Royal Rumble match.

This was the night after Evolution where she and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus defeated Alicia Fox and current Impact Knockouts Champion Mickie James at Evolution.
