Charlotte Flair returns, gets added to SummerSlam title match


Charlotte Flair is not only back, but will be in the SmackDown women’s title match at SummerSlam.

She made her return tonight after making a save for Becky Lynch, who was jumped by Carmella after James Ellsworth’s music distracted her. After being confronted backstage by GM Paige, a match was made between Charlotte and Carmella where if Charlotte won, she would be added to the title match at Summerslam. Charlotte won by submission, much to the chagrin of friend Becky Lynch, who backstage looked less than pleased about Charlotte being added to the match.

Charlotte was scheduled back on the road today and was cleared to return to action tonight. She took time off following Backlash back in May to recover from surgery following complications with her breast implants. She explained to Maria Menounos on her podcast that her implants had ruptured, with silicone spreading to other parts of her chest and back.

SummerSlam is set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
