4-time RAW Women’s Champion and 1-time SmackDown Women’s Champion, WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair will undergo surgery according to a report from PWInsider.
Charlotte will go under the knife to fix a ruptured breast implant. Reports suggest that the implant was ruptured before Wrestlemania 34 but Flair did not opt for a surgery earlier so that she wouldn’t miss the match with Asuka.
However, Flair is still scheduled for the WWE European Tour that kicks off this week and sources claim that the former Champion will undergo surgery following the tour. The ACE Comic Con convention announced on Twitter that Flair is set to miss their event at Seattle on June 22, 2018 due to the surgery, though the tweet was taken down shortly thereafter. Charlotte will be replaced by reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella.
In recent weeks on SmackDown Live, The Queen has been engaged in a feud involving Carmella and The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay). Royce & Kay attacked Charlotte on their debut following the Superstar Shakeup, and Carmella seized that golden opportunity by cashing in her Money in The Bank briefcase to pin Flair for the title. Charlotte then suffered defeat at the hands of Carmella in her rematch on May 6, 2018 at WWE Backlash.
The Queen dominated Peyton Royce this week on SmackDown Live to qualify for the Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match which is scheduled for June 17, 2018 at the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View.
