Lita: Charlotte Flair Got Her WWE Spot Because Of Her Lineage
Lita was full of praise for both women, but reveals she'll be cheering for Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39.
In a recent interview with Forbes, WWE Hall of Famer Lita praised both Superstars involved in the SmackDown Women's Championship match at WrestleMania - Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley.
However, Lita also explained that despite Rhea's role as the heel of the feud, she'll be cheering for the Australian come WrestleMania 39, stating:
"Charlotte's natural role is to be a heel, right? Because it's like that overconfident vibe. I almost wonder if Rhea is going to bring that out of Charlotte because you can only get shown up with confidence so much before Charlotte puts it back in your face.
"I know she is the heel in this match, but I'm rooting for [Rhea Ripley] - because Charlotte has earned her shot, but she was also presented with a spot because of her lineage, and has just stepped up and continues to rise to the occasion. Whereas I do feel like Rhea created her spot, and she’s just getting started, but it has culminated in this high-profile match at WrestleMania."
Lita recently returned to action in WWE, winning the Women's Tag Team Titles alongside Becky Lynch. The pair are set to compete alongside Trish Stratus at WrestleMania, taking on the trio of Bayley, IYO SKY and Dakota Kai - otherwise known as Damage CTRL.
