Lita Says WWE Has Discussed The Idea Of Women’s Tag Team Titles, Talks Women’s Royal Rumble


WWE Hall of Famer Lita did a Q & A session in Paris recently and may have revealed a bit of a bombshell. According to her, there have been internal discussions at WWE about adding Women’s Tag Team Titles.

“There has been talks of tag titles for the Women’s Division, and I think that I love that they first introduced the Money in the Bank briefcase, that’s been a long time coming and that adds an element of surprise within the title picture,” she said.

“I would love to see these rumored tag titles appear sooner than later, but for that to happen, I hope they bring up these women that are already at NXT or some women they’ve seen on the Mae Young Classic and expand the roster.”

Lita is also hoping that a Women’s Royal Rumble takes place.

“I would absolutely love if there was a Women’s Rumble. If anybody has seen the Mae Young Classic, has watched Ring of Honor, has watched these promotions around the world, there are no shortage of entrants of who could be in that Royal Rumble.

“I think that we all should start a hashtag ‘#WomensRoyalRumble’ because you know, that’s how things happened before. Create that buzz, and they’ll eventually listen.”

Lita served as the color commentator for the Mae Young Classic alongside fellow WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross. When asked about doing more commentating in the future, Lita responded by saying:

“So, when I was asked to call the action alongside JR for the MYC, it was a big honor, and I love being able to come full circle. JR is the one who hired me initially to start my journey with the WWE so to work on that capacity on the other side behind the desk with him, I was really excited not only with that but the unprecedented history-making of a 32 women tournament is also very exciting to be a part of. So while I was very honored, I will say that I felt a lot of pressure, and I was very nervous because I’ve watched million wrestling matches and I’ve listened to commentating but when I’m watching, I’m not talking I just go like ‘Wow, that’s cool’ and so to translate to all-of-a-sudden jump in to be a commentator… (Looks at Sylvain Guernalec) I hear you’re a commentator. Is it hard right? Because you wanna do justice to the hard work that’s happening in the ring. I had just met these 32 incredible women and tried to do justice to them and to their matches. So yes, I was honored, but at the same time I was pressured, they’re saying a lot of things to you in your ear, you’re trying to hit time queues, it’s a whole thing. Very challenging but I enjoyed it.”
