On this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Charlotte Flair was written off WWE TV after she was viciously attacked by Nia Jax backstage. The company later announced Flair had suffered a suspected fractured collarbone in storyline and is expected to feud with The Facebreaker and Asuka when she returns.
While the injury may be kayfabe, reports earlier this week noted The Queen is taking some time off to undergo surgery and take a break from in-ring action. The length of time Flair will be gone for was unknown, however, as the company reportedly hoped to have her back by SummerSlam but other reports stated Charlotte planned to go on an extended break and return ahead of the Royal Rumble.
Flair revealed on Sport Hiatus that she will only be gone for a "few weeks" and fans will hardly have the chance to miss her.
She said: "Yes, I'll only be gone for a few weeks. No, they could still play things on the network but utilising my social media will be most important while I'm gone I think… No one is going to miss me. They're still going to feel like I'm there basically is what I'm saying. I'm gone but I’m not really gone."
