Dr. Lita Is Supposedly in Talks With AEW
Lita’s return to the blue brand after a long absence was featured on tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown, and she ended up in the ring with Charlotte Flair for some back-and-forth.
When we get to the Royal Rumble, Lita and Flair will be in the ring with 28 other superstars, but according to a report from Fightful Select, Lita had previously been in talks with All Elite Wrestling.
According to the report, Lita was contacted by AEW in 2019 to appear on one of their shows, and a pitch for a top program with AEW Women’s World Champion Dr.
Lita’s camp and AEW talked last year, and a creative plan was laid out around AEW All Out, but the two sides couldn’t come to an agreement.
The report goes on to say that the two sides ended on a positive note and that they could still do business in the future.
Lita in AEW would have been intriguing, especially if it included a feud with Baker, though there were a few differences back then.
Baker hadn’t won the championship yet in 2019 (she would do so in 2021), and she was still a babyface (she wouldn’t turn heel until the first half of 2020).
Granted, this could have aided in her eventual heel turn, but it wouldn’t have been the same as a Baker vs Lita match now.
Fans would still love to see Lita wrestle Baker after her WWE run is over.
The current Royal Rumble card, as well as confirmed entrants, can be found below:
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar – WWE Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan in the WWE Championship match.

Doudrop is a word that can be translated as
