Lita found out she would be wrestling Mickie James at Evolution when everyone else did

WWE has only booked four official matches for its upcoming all women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, which is now under one month away from taking place in Long Island, New York. A few weeks ago, we learned a Legend, Lita, would make her return for a match against former rival Mickie James.

As it turns out, she found out about that at the same time we all did.

From her interview with SunSport:

“We were told a while ago that there was going to be an all-women pay-per-view and they were still getting it together, but they asked if I’d be interested in being a part of it in some capacity – and I told them to count me in. That’s pretty much all the conversation was. I didn’t know if I’d be doing commentary or even just being invited to attend to support the women. And then I found out when you all did that Mickie James would be my opponent and I would not just be a part of Evolution but I’d actually be in the ring. That’s when you just hold your breath and go with it.”

There’s something hilarious about WWE just not telling her about wrestling on the show, allowing her to find out this way.

This will be Lita’s second match in WWE this year, as she was also involved in the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match back in January.
