In June, Charlotte Flair was written off WWE television following an attack by Nia Jax that appeared to injure Charlotte's arm. The injury was a work designed to allow Charlotte to take time off to get a needed surgery done, with a return date speculated as early as SummerSlam and as late as the Royal Rumble. Over the weekend, Flair took to Twitter to explain why she needed time off. Apparently, The Queen needs to get a long term issue with a leaky breast implant taken care of.
In a series of tweets, Flair refers back to an issue that initially occurred after WrestleMania in 2018, and indeed it was reported back then that Flair was wrestling with the issue ("just take a z-pac, I'll owe you one, pal").
"My air conditioning is broken, and we have a little free time. These tweets may be spaced out a bit, but we're going to talk time off, plastic surgery and boobs," Flair said. "The entire world having an opinion on the topic bothers me more than I care to let on, so we are going to discuss it."
She continued: "I'm going to save the history of my boobs for a different bedtime story, so: Picture it. Charlotte, North Carolina, 2018. A young queen, shortly after a career-defining Wrestlemania victory, finds herself sicker than sick at her brother's house. A trip to the doctor tells us the likely culprit is silicone poisoning, and that my implant had been leaking for quite some time. It was one of the worse cases the doctor had seen. At that time, I had a few options to fix the issue. Each option had a specific recovery time. I love this job more than anything, so I picked the option that allowed me to return the soonest. That was the choice I made."
"Fast forward to a few months ago," Flair went on. "Something felt off, so I went back to the doctor. Same issue again. This time, I'm going with an option that I believe will solve the issue long time, even though the recovery period is a little longer than I would like. To clarify: I do not have silicone poisoning this time. The surgery is cosmetic to fix an issue from a prior surgery."
Flair didn't give a timeframe for when she'll be back, but she did promise to be better than ever. "I'll be back when I'm ready. The body will be rested, and the mind still focused on legacy. Focused on this job. Focused on being better. Always being better." Hopefully, The Queen is back sooner than later, after taking time to fully recover, of course.
