Charlotte Flair Addresses Her Absence From WWE – Charlotte Flair is on a hiatus from WWE once again as Flair missed most of 2022 after taking time off in May to get married and then had dental issues. She returned on the December 30th edition of SmackDown, where she won the SmackDown Women’s Title.
Flair lost the WWE SmackDown Women’s Title to Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39 last month. Following the match, there was speculation that Flair could take time off for a bodybuilding competition this summer.
As previously reported, Flair informed the company before the show that she would take time off. At the time, it was believed that she and her husband, Andrade, would travel while on vacation.
While speaking with Boardroom, Flair talked about the company being acquired by the Endeavor Group and addressed her recent absence from WWE.
“For me, I went from having never any off-days to getting injured last year after WrestleMania and being off for seven months, and then now off again for a couple weeks for something that I needed to take care of, so it’s a blessing and a curse. Like, no one wants to be injured, but having that first time off for that extended amount of time, I think was definitely healthy for my mindset.”
It’s unclear how long the hiatus will be for.
