Charlotte pulled from tonight's WWE TV due to minor dental surgery

After Charlotte Flair underwent minor dental surgery for a mouth infection last Wednesday, WWE has pulled her from tonight's SmackDown and Mixed Match Challenge episodes.

WWE.com announced that Charlotte is "unable to compete on WWE Mixed Match Challenge tonight due to injury." A fan vote will decide who replaces her, with Becky Lynch, Carmella, and Lana listed as the three options. The winner will team with Bobby Roode against Finn Balor & Sasha Banks.

Tonight is the last semifinal in the Mixed Match Challenge tournament. Asuka & The Miz advanced to the finals last week by defeating Alexa Bliss & Braun Strowman.

Charlotte vs. Natalya in a non-title match had been added to the lineup for tonight's SmackDown, but it's no longer mentioned. It was going to be a rematch from last Tuesday after Natalya pinned Charlotte with a roll-up following a distraction from Carmella.

Charlotte wasn't on any of this weekend's house shows after having the surgery. She's still scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Asuka at WrestleMania 34 on April 8th.
