• Plan Changed After Trish Stratus Arrived To RAW
As we noted earlier, WRKDWrestling (the source that broke the news of Lita’s return) reported that WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus was set to return on tonight’s RAW to begin the build-up for the following 6-woman tag team match at WrestleMania 39:
Trish Stratus, Lita & Becky Lynch vs. Damage CTRL (Bayley and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai & IYO SKY)
However, Trish didn’t appear on tonight’s show, despite the show taking place in her home country of Canada.
Instead of Trish, Lita ended up appearing on RAW.
Bayley held a “Ding Dong, Hello!” segment with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai & IYO SKY on RAW, where she called them the greatest Women’s Tag Team Champions of all time.
Becky Lynch then came out and so did Lita. Becky & Lita then challenged Dakota & IYO to a Title match.
Bayley said they can’t just ask for a Title match. Becky said Lita is a former 4-time Women’s Champion and one of the greatest of all time.
Becky then talked about herself being a 6-time Women’s Champion, winner of the 1st ever women’s WrestleMania main event and also one of the greatest of all time, and that’s enough to ask for a Title match.
Lita then asked if Dakota & IYO are scared, and if they really are the greatest Women’s Tag Team Champions of all time, then they should have no problem in proving it.
Bayley then accepted the challenge on behalf of her Damage CTRL members.
Lita & Becky then snatched the Titles away from them and posed. This match will take place on next week’s RAW.
According to Fightful Select, Trish was backstage at tonight’s RAW, but the creative plan changed at the last minute and she wasn’t used. She left the show before this segment happened.
It’s possible that WWE saves her return for next week’s RAW, where Bayley might cost Becky & Lita the match and Trish returns to make the save, and set up their WrestleMania 39 encounter.
