As noted before, Charlotte Flair will be undergoing surgery for a currently unknown reason and was reportedly expected to return in time for this year’s SummerSlam, which takes place on August 23rd. PWInsider said that she’s expected to be out for about six weeks.
But TalkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy reported that his sources stated that there is actually “close to a zero percent chance” that Flair returns in time for this year’s SummerSlam. McCarthy reported that Flair is currently planning on taking an extended break from WWE and might not return until next year’s Royal Rumble in January.
McCarthy also reported that Flair is also currently open to the idea of making her return by Survivor Series, but only “if a good story pops up” for her.
