As WWE Hall of Famer Lita prepares to make her return at this year's Royal Rumble, she reportedly had past talks with AEW that included a pitch for a program with Britt Baker.

Fightful reported that AEW and Lita had discussions in 2021. A pitch was made for a program with the AEW Women's Champion to happen around last September's All Out. Both sides eventually were unable to come to an agreement.

After being done with WWE in 2006 and an indie appearance in April 2007, Lita stayed away from the ring until she returned on the 1000th Raw for a match with Heath Slater. 

She then left for another five years before another indie match in 2017 followed by three WWE appearances in 2018 that included the Royal Rumble and the all-women's Evolution pay-per-view.

Lita appeared on Friday's SmackDown for the first time in nearly 20 years, laying out Charlotte Flair with a Twist of Fate after Flair interrupted her in-ring promo.
