That’s a rather unique injury. As has been mentioned several times, you never know what kind of injury you might see in wrestling. Whether it’s AJ Styles having a chair that he threw at Shinsuke Nakamura’s knee rebound back and hit him in the face or just the regular wear and tear from wrestling, injuries can happen anytime. In this case however, it’s an instance of cosmetic surgery not being built to last.

It was working fine on Tuesday.

Charlotte Flair vs. Peyton Royce - Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: SmackDown LIVE, May 8, 2018

According to, Charlotte will soon be undergoing surgery to repair a broken breast implant. At the moment it is not known how long she will be out of action, but the surgery is scheduled to take place after the European tour wraps up. The tour starts this week and will be done before the end of the month, meaning the surgery isn’t that far off. This week Charlotte qualified for the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match by defeating Peyton Royce on SmackDown Live, though her status for the match on June 17 is currently in question due to the upcoming surgery.

Opinion: I’m not sure what exactly I can say on this one. It’s not something that you’re going to see very often and while it’s only cosmetic (literally), I’m sure it can’t be good to have a foreign substance leaking into your body. Chyna had the same issue nearly twenty years ago so it’s not entirely unheard of. Wrestling is a physical event though and it’s not the most shocking thing to see something like this happen sooner or later.

What do you see Charlotte doing when she’s back? Will she be champion again by the end of the year? Let us know in the comments below.
