It’s been a rough handful of months for the former Smackdown Women’s champion, Charlotte Flair.
After she was knocked out of the Mixed Match Challenge with what was called a minor dental procedure, Flair suffered a ruptured breast implant in the build up to WrestleMania. The five-time women’s champ worked through the injury, completed her epic showdown with Asuka, then dropped the title to Carmella and hasn’t missed time from Smackdown to get the surgery necessary for recovery. She is scheduled to have surgery at some point, but apparently wanted to work the European tour and take part in an ESPN shoot before doing so.
Unfortunately, Charlotte’s string of bad luck continued on the European tour, when she apparently had her teeth knocked out Thursday evening: (H/T Fightful)
Flair qualified for the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match on Smackdown Live on Tuesday, defeating Peyton Royce and setting up her opportunity to get back in the title picture at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. The Money in the Bank event is currently set for June 17, so having to finish out the tour, then undergo surgery could conceivably cause her to miss the event entirely.
WWE has yet to release a statement on either of Charlotte’s injuries. All the best to Charlotte as she heals up from a brutal last few months.
