Charlotte Flair injury update: The Queen could be out for the remainder of 2020. It was previously reported that she would return by SummerSlam.
Charlotte Flair lost her title match against Asuka and was then attacked by Nia Jax. This was done in order to write her off television. The Queen will be taking a hiatus to undergo an elective surgery for a legitimate injury.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that the WWE expect her to return by SummerSlam and partake in a triple threat match with Nia Jax and Asuka in a triple threat match for the Raw Women’s Championship. There is however, another conflicting Charlotte Flair injury update that suggests she may not even return this year.
talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy is now reporting that Flair will be taking an extended break from the WWE.
“The idea is that she will return around Royal Rumble season next year, but if a good story pops up before then – around Survivor Series – she would be open to return later this year,” the report reads.
The report also quoted a source in the company saying,
“There’s a 0 percent chance Charlotte returns for SummerSlam.”
The Queen will use her time off to heal the injuries and take some personal time. Before the injury, she was present in all 3 of WWE’s Brands. She was the NXT Women’s Champion before losing it to Io Shirai. She was also seen on SmackDown as well as her home brand WWE RAW.
