The former AEW EVP Cody Rhodes has been slated to make his return to WWE soon. He is likely to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38. Ahead of his historic return, WWE Hall of Famer Lita revealed that she spoke to Cody Rhodes. However, it was about Lita possibly signing with AEW. She revealed that considered working with AEW before her recent return to WWE in-ring competition.
Lita reveals a conversation with Cody Rhodes
The legendary star participated in the Women’s Royal Rumble match on January 29 after more than three years away from the ring. On February 19, she then competed in her first singles match in almost a decade against Becky Lynch at Elimination Chamber. She had received widespread praise after her defeat against Becky Lynch at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia.
Speaking on Chris Van Vliet’s Insight podcast, Lita said she was tempted to join AEW after the company’s former Executive Vice President got in touch. However, she felt WWE was the perfect fit for her return:
“Cody had reached out, and I watched the program more from an aspect of maybe being there and seeing how I could fit in besides catching it [AEW shows] when I catch it. So yeah, of course I started brainstorming and thinking about possibilities. But then on the flip side when I talked about WWE, I was just like, ‘It’s right there for the taking.’”
Given the Lita’s history in WWE and her friendship with Becky Lynch played a part in her decision not to join AEW:
“It [WWE] just seemed to be the better fit. I never met Britt.” Lita continued, “Becky is a close friend of mine, so to be able to have the possibility of that match… we just really wanted it. I didn’t think it could ever happen, so to be able to have that was really special.”
We will have to see what is next for her.
