The WWE roster is loaded with talent at the moment, but you never know when one of the company’s top stars may need to take some time off. On Sunday night Charlotte Flair dropped the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania Backlash, and it looks like the title change was done to get Flair off TV for a while.
Following the match WWE shared a storyline update claiming that Charlotte suffered a “fractured radius.” Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the storyline injury is being used to write Charlotte off TV while she gets married.
“It’s the angle to write her off to get married. I don’t know exactly how long she’s going to be out but it’s wedding and honeymoon and all that,” Meltzer said.
Charlotte is currently engaged to AEW star Andrade el Idolo. It’s not clear when the wedding will take place or when she will return. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
