UPDATEx2: talkSport reports that Charlotte Flair is taking an extended break from WWE and could be out until next year’s Royal Rumble. Charlotte will be using the break to take personal time and have an elective surgery procedure done, as noted earlier.

According to the report, if a storyline that interests Charlotte does come up earlier, she may return around Survivor Series time. A source told talkSport that there is a 0% chance Charlotte will return for SummerSlam.

Flair is likely to be healed up from her surgery by September.

PWInsider reported earlier that Flair is expected to take only six weeks off.

UPDATE: PWInsider reported additional details on Charlotte Flair. According to PWInsider’s report, the outlet was told that Charlotte Flair “is not injured or sick.” While she is reportedly undergoing surgery, it’s said to be an “elective” procedure. Per the report, Charlotte Flair is expected to take six weeks off.

ORIGINAL: As previously noted, Asuka retained her Raw women’s title last night over Charlotte Flair. Later on, Nia Jax attacked Charlotte Flair and attacked her shoulder. Per WWE’s storyline update, Charlotte Flair suffered a “collarbone fracture.” Per F4WOnline.com and Wrestling Observer Radio, Charlotte is currently injured, which was the reason WWE ran the injury storyline for her last night on Raw.

Additionally, Charlotte Flair’s injury does require surgery. The exact details and nature of Charlotte’s injury are still unknown. However, according to Meltzer on today’s episode, the injury is not a shoulder injury. It’s hoped that she will be ready to return in time for Summerslam in August, but it’s not 100 percent clear yet if she will be ready in time for that event.

Here is the in storyline update WWE released on Charlotte Flair yesterday:

Charlotte Flair is being evaluated for an injury following the ruthless attack by Nia Jax on Raw, WWE.com has learned.

Flair had already suffered an injury in a brawl with Jax prior to her Raw Women’s Title Match with Asuka. After coming up short against The Empress of Tomorrow, The Queen was ruthlessly attacked in the backstage area by Jax, who slammed a road case into Flair’s arm. While the specifics of The Queen’s injury have not been fully determined, it is believed she may have suffered a potential collarbone fracture.
