Ahead of the 2022 Royal Rumble, WWE announced a number of participants who would be returning, notably including Kelly Kelly, Summer Rae, and WWE Hall of Famer Lita. On the go home episode of SmackDown, Sasha Banks returned from injury and declared that she was “ready to Rumble” as she confronted an arrogant Charlotte Flair.
