Top Star Undergoing Surgery Following MITB
We noted before WrestleMania 34 that Charlotte Flair has been delaying surgery to repair a ruptured breast implant, but it appears as if she will soon be undergoing the procedure. Flair is currently scheduled to compete in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match this Sunday night, and after the event, she is expected to undergo the procedure to repair the rupture.
As of now, there is no word on how much ring time Charlotte will be missing, but she has been pulled from the upcoming Japan dates on June 29th and 30th. Charlotte was originally advertised for the shows taking place at Sumo Hall, but the surgery will prevent her from competing.
