As part of the build to the Royal Rumble, WWE Hall of Famer Lita made her return to SmackDown last night.
Lita was interviewed about taking part in this year's women's Royal Rumble match. Lita said she thinks she has one more run in her -- and that will begin with her winning the Rumble and going on to main event WrestleMania.
Lita was interrupted by SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair, who has also declared for the women's Royal Rumble match. Charlotte mocked Lita's age and vowed to throw her out of the ring at the Royal Rumble.
Charlotte asked Lita how she'll handle the humiliation of Charlotte ending her short-lived comeback and WrestleMania dreams. Lita responded by asking Charlotte how she plans to throw anyone out of the Royal Rumble with the giant head that she has.
Charlotte said she broke Trish Stratus and forced her to retire when they faced off at SummerSlam 2019 -- and that's exactly what she's going to do to Lita at the Royal Rumble. Lita then acted like she was going to slap Charlotte in the face. When Charlotte flinched, Lita kicked her and laid her out with the Twist of Fate.
Last night's SmackDown was headlined by a face-to-face segment between former Shield stablemates Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins ahead of their Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble later this month. Rollins said he created Reigns and can destroy him. Reigns called Rollins a clown and said that, if he wanted to face a megastar at the Royal Rumble, he would have chosen Rollins' wife Becky Lynch instead.
The Usos tried to attack Rollins from behind, but Rollins avoided them and was able to escape from danger.
