Charlotte Flair was unable to defeat Asuka this week on WWE RAW. This was followed by a backstage attack at the hands of Nia Jax. It appears that attack was designed to write The Queen of television.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer brought up Charlotte Flair’s situation. She does need surgery which is why she was attacked backstage. It’s unknown exactly how long she will be out of action.
“So Charlotte Flair is having surgery that’s the deal as far as why they did what they did. It’s not — I think she’s going to be back for SummerSlam, I don’t know — I asked a couple of people and nobody knows the time frame, but she’s definitely having surgery and that’s the storyline was to explain her being gone, but it’s not — you know I think SummerSlam it was sorta hinted to me that they hope SummerSlam, but it’s not 100% either.”
It was noted that Flair’s injury has nothing to do with her shoulder in reality. It does on the show, but in reality, her surgery is not shoulder related.
It appears that Rhea Ripley won’t be getting her revenge on Charlotte Flair so soon. For that matter, nobody will be wrestling the second generation Superstar for a while. Flair is now off television and nobody is 100% certain how long she will be gone.
This is another big loss for WWE’s women’s division. Following Becky Lynch’s pregnancy hiatus, Charlotte Flair was positioned to take her place in the top spot. Now WWE will have to wait until The Queen is ready to return.
