During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer Lita commented on making her return to the ring, the mindset of the current women’s division, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On returning to the ring: “The injuries I’ve had in the past, I can’t say they don’t try to creep their way into my head every time I get back in the ring. Once I’m in the ring, I usually forget all about that. That’s the only way for me to be successful. If you’re doubting yourself when you’re in there, it’s a surefire way to get hurt again. It plays in my head still, but I’m very fortunate that most days I feel great.”
On the mindset of the current women’s division: “They’re fearless in a way that they don’t know there were boundaries and limitations placed on them subconsciously. They have fostered an environment where they meet every challenge and exceed expectations every single time. I love that fearless energy and how infectious it is in the locker room.”
On her longtime association with Trish Stratus: “We both recognized that we had something the first day we met. We just had a really nice chemistry and got along so well. In our first rivalry, with Team Xtreme and T&A [Test and Albert] and doing those six-man tags, we knew right away that we had something special.”
