Chyna's last match in WWE was actually planned at some point to be part of a larger feud with Lita, according to her.
Lita recently appeared on "After The Bell" podcast hosted by Corey Graves and discussed what part of Lita's career she regretted that didn't materialize. Lita mentioned that she was actually originally going to have multiple pay-per-view matches against Chyna, but that feud was cut short after the first match, which was Judgment Day 2001.
"When Chyna was transitioning from working with only men and then to women, she went through Ivory and Right To Censor and then into a program with me. We had one pay-per-view match together and it was supposed to be a three pay-per-view program. So, intentionally, the first match we had was solid. It was okay, but we wanted to give the people just enough for them to go, 'There's something here. We want to see more.' We held back knowing, thinking, that we were going to have two more matches, but she ended up not working there. That was the end of her time with WWE and we didn't have that program," Lita said.
Lita also gave out some advice that she learned that is related to that last match with Chyna, which is to always wrestle like it's your last match and she wished she did more to make Chyna's final match with WWE more memorable.
"I have been told this advice before. Any opportunity you have, make the most of it, act like it's your lat match every night and if I had done that, we would have had a much more memorable match," Lita said.
