In a scene that no one would have predicted even a few months ago, new Women’s Tag Team Champions Becky Lynch and Lita stood tall at the end of Raw shoulder-to-shoulder with Trish Stratus.
Becky Lynch has been at war with Bayley and Damage CRTL for months but recently found some backup in the form of Lita. The WWE Hall of Famer came to help The Man defeat Bayley in a Cage Match on Raw as she was being outnumbered yet again.
On the February 20th episode of the red brand, Lynch said that she wanted to take the tag team titles from IYO SKY and Dakota Kai before bringing out her new bestie. The pair then laid down a challenge to Damage CTRL which Bayley accepted. Fast forward seven days and Lynch and Lita were battling in the main event against SKY and Kai with Bayley becoming increasingly involved at ringside.
Step forward, Trish Stratus. The WWE legend ran in and attacked Bayley finally evening up the numbers. This left Lita to hit a Moonsault to score a famous win. The victory marked the first time that either Lita or Becky Lynch had won tag team gold, while it was Lita’s first title win in 17 years.
Speaking in a WWE Digital Exclusive after the show, the trio revealed how their plan came together. Lita said when it became clear they would need backup, there was only one person to call, as Lynch joked that she doesn’t have any friends. Stratus said that she had kept her eye on “sneaky” Bayley waiting til the time was right to get involved.
“Listen, I knew these guys could handle it for the most part, but you know, Bayley is a little sneaky. So, I had my eye out.”
During the interview, Becky Lynch paid tribute to the two WWE Hall of Famers for paving the way for women like herself in WWE.
Trish Stratus Vs Bayley At WrestleMania?
Prior to February 27th Trish Stratus last appeared on Raw back in August in her hometown of Toronto, Canada. On that occasion, her promo was interrupted by Bayley and Damage CTRL. In a back-and-forth segment that also featured Bianca Belair, Stratus threatened to come out of retirement to face Bayley.
Stratus last wrestled at SummerSlam in 2019 where she lost to Charlotte Flair.
It has been reported that Stratus is going to stay with WWE for a “lengthy program” hinting that she could be involved at WrestleMania.
