There were no details included in the announcement elaborating as to what type of injury Charlotte Flair suffered that has caused her to be pulled from tonight’s SmackDown Live & Mixed Match Challenge tapings. Charlotte was scheduled to face Natalya on tonight’s episode of SmackDown LIVE, but it now appears as though that match has been cancelled as well.
It was noted that Charlotte did not work this past weekend’s set of SmackDown Branded WWE Live Events, which would indicate that the injury is legitimate and not part of a storyline.
Charlotte’s last match was on last week’s episode of WWE SmackDown LIVE when she wrestled Natalya. She is still scheduled to face Asuka for the WWE SmackDown LIVE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 34.
We will keep you updated when more information regarding Charlotte Flair’s injury becomes available.
