Lita Makes Surprise Challenge To Becky Lynch

Lita Raw Women's Championship

WWE Hall of Famer Lita made a shocking return to Monday Night Raw and laid down a challenge for Becky Lynch!

After successfully defeating Doudrop at the Royal Rumble, Becky Lynch is eagerly awaiting Ronda Rousey’s decision about who to face at WrestleMania 38. On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Ronda appeared and cut a promo saying that she has unfinished business with both Becky and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, but that “Rebecca” didn’t deserve her attention.

This drew out Big Time Becks to confront the Rowdy one, saying that time is money and she wanted Ronda to answer with her decision right now. Rousey declined, taking down the champion and saying that her answer will come on Friday, where she is scheduled to appear on SmackDown. Rousey then made her way up the ramp and out of the arena, leaving Becky alone in the ring.

Becky Lynch bragged that Ronda is still scared of her, and that she would never back down from a fight. Then, to the shock of the crowd, the sounds of Lita’s theme music filled the arena and the WWE Hall of Famer confronted Becky Lynch in the ring.

Lita and Becky Lynch went back and forth about how rude Ronda was, and after agreeing that Becky is a fighting champion, the former member of Team Xtreme made a challenge to Becky Lynch to face her for the Raw Women’s Championship in Saudi Arabia at the Elimination Chamber. Becky initially said no, but as the crowd chanted “yes” and Lita accused her of being scared, she said she would accept.

I am many things, but what I am not is scared. If you want a match at Elimination Chamber, you got it.

This Elimination Chamber confrontation will mark Lita’s first single’s match in WWE since defeating Heath Slater during a guest appearance in 2012.

Elsewhere on Raw, Brock Lesnar announced that he would be facing Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 and the five men competing in the Elimination Chamber itself were revealed.
