superstar Charlotte Flair was reportedly pulled from shows over the weekend after.
The former women’s champion was in action on Friday Night SmackDown when her match against Asuka took a terrifying turn when the Queen slipped during an ad break.
Footage doing the rounds on social media shows Flair slipping and catching her leg on the top rope.
She could then be seen visibly in pain and distressed as she shouted about her knee to veteran referee Charles Robinson, while the incident – and the exchange – didn’t make it on air.
Flair was pulled from live events over the weekend, with reporting she was ‘originally scheduled’ for the shows, but she wasn’t in action.
The outlet added that there is still ‘no concrete update’ on her condition, although some people behind the scenes are said to be ‘extremely concerned the knee injury could be fairly serious’.
In other photos shared by fans online in the aftermath, Flair could be seen being checked over by Robinson and medical professionals, while another video showed her being helped onto her feet and taken backstage.
A lengthy spell out of action at this point would be devastating for , who returned to SmackDown in June following a two month hiatus after her loss to Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39.
Since then, she has been embroiled in a tense rivalry with Damage CTRL, getting support from Shotzi as they recently teamed up with Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair against Bayley, Asuka, Kairi Sane and current WWE Women’s Champion Iyo Sky at Survivor Series: WarGames.
With the Royal Rumble fast approaching in less than two months weeks, the beginning of the Road to WrestleMania isn’t far away, and plans are starting to be put in place for the show.
Flair’s fans will be hoping her apparent setback is nothing too serious.
WWE SmackDown airs Friday nights at 1am on TNT Sports 1.
