Last updated

In a recent development that has sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe, Charlotte Flair, one of WWE’s top superstars, is expected to be sidelined for an extended period.

According to the latest reports, Flair suffered a significant knee injury, which will keep her out of action for approximately nine months.

This aligns with our recent report where we indicated from our source that Flair was set to be out of action for “months” following her accident on last week’s SmackDown.

The Incident Leading to Charlotte Flair’s WWE Injury

The injury occurred during a high-stakes match on the December 8th edition of SmackDown, where Charlotte Flair faced off against Asuka.

The match, which was already intense due to the long-standing rivalry between the two superstars, took a dramatic turn when Flair’s leg got entangled in the top rope.

This mishap led to Flair limping noticeably towards the end of the match. Despite her efforts to continue, the severity of the injury became apparent, and she was eventually escorted backstage by WWE officials and personnel.

Following the incident, WWE took swift action by removing Charlotte Flair from the scheduled live events for the following weekend.

This move was a clear indication of the seriousness of her injury. The confirmation of the extent of Flair’s injury came later, with WWE officially announcing that she had sustained damage to her knee, necessitating a lengthy recovery period.
