Charlotte Flair Reveals She Is Still Dealing With Dental Issues
Charlotte Flair will need more time off from WWE TV at some point
Charlotte Flair was off TV for much of 2022 from WrestleMania Backlash in May until the final SmackDown of the year where she regained the SmackDown Women's Championship from Ronda Rousey.
Flair revealed she was gone from WWE for so long due to dental issues but those issues still aren't behind the multi-time women's champion.
Speaking on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Flair revealed she is going to need to undergo another dental surgery at some point.
"I have three implants and one of them failed. Like a week before the wedding, literally a week before the wedding, the implant failed. So actually, during my ceremony, I had 22 stitches up here because they had to cut out the - when it failed, it was an infection. So then over the summer, [I had] bone grafting, two gum grafting procedures. Everyone's like, why were you gone? I mean, dental issues are hard to explain...and it's still not done. I'm probably going to have to replace that third implant that we tried to save," Charlotte said.
Flair then detailed how her dental issues began, adding:
"The first time I had my teeth knocked out, I was like six years old, and I was riding my bike, fell over the handlebars, knocked out all four. We found three, put two in milk, one was gone. Just couldn't find it until I got home. We took off my hoodie and it just fell out of like the hoodie. Then, obviously, two ended up dying. Then, all-star cheerleading in middle school, seventh grade, one girl knocked it out. Her nickname was 'Duck.' The next year, she knocked them out again. Then I knocked them out in Germany with Carmella. So, it's been a process. It's so stressful."
Flair is scheduled to defend the SmackDown Women's Championship against Sonya Deville on the February 3 episode of SmackDown.
