Charlotte Flair having surgery, hopeful for WWE SummerSlam



On Monday's Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer reported that Charlotte Flair is having surgery, explaining the reason she was injured in storyline on Raw Monday night.

Meltzer didn't specify the reason for the surgery or what is being operated on, but said that it's not a shoulder injury. He said there is hope she will be ready for SummerSlam in August. However, that's not 100%.

WWE put out a statement overnight, saying Flair is being evaluated for a "potential collarbone fracture" following an attack at the hands of Nia Jax. The two had a brawl early in the show where afterward, Tom Phillips said Flair's arm might be injured. Later, Asuka defeated Flair to retain the Raw women's title, working over the arm repeatedly. Later, Jax attacked Flair where they are saying she got the injury.

Meltzer said the plan is for a three way program with Asuka, Flair, and Jax upon Flair's return.

The 34-year-old recently lost the NXT women's title in a three-way featuring Io Shirai and Rhea Ripley at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. She had held the belt for 63 days following her WrestleMania title win over then-champion Ripley.
