WWE Announces That Charlotte Flair Is Dealing With An Injury

"The Queen" is apparently dealing with a stinger.

WWE has announced that the current SmackDown Live Women's Champion Charlotte Flair is dealing with an injury which will keep her out of action for tonight. Flair was scheduled to work double duty as she was set to have her rematch with Natalya from last week's show, and compete in the Mixed Match Challenge alongside her partner Bobby Roode. There were no further details released by WWE regarding the severity of said injury, but Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp was told by a source that the injury is not serious.

Bobby Roode will have a new partner for tonight's Mixed Match Challenge tournament match following SmackDown Live. Fans have the option to choose between Becky Lynch, Carmella, or Lana to team with "The Glorious One" against Sasha Banks & Finn Balor. Below is the official announcement regarding the situation:


A fan vote will determine who will replace Charlotte Flair on WWE Mixed Match Challenge tonight

"With SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair unable to compete on WWE Mixed Match Challenge tonight due to injury, a fan vote will determine Bobby Roode's new partner against the Second Chance Fan Vote-winning tandem of Finn Bálor & Sasha Banks.

The charismatic team of Bálor & Banks kicked off the groundbreaking tournament in Week 1 with a tough win over Shinsuke Nakamura & Natalya, but their hopes for triumph came crashing down when they were defeated in a hard-fought second-round contest against "Team Awe-ska." Nevertheless, the WWE Universe made it very clear that they wanted "The Boss Club" back in the mix, handing them an incredible 40 percent of the Second Chance Vote. Now that The Boss and The Extraordinary Man have their names back in the brackets, a victory tonight would set up a rematch against the very team that defeated them in the first place. But, who exactly will they be facing? Which Superstar does the WWE Universe think can will replace Flair as Roode's tag team partner?

In two weeks at WrestleMania 34, Charlotte Flair will be defending her SmackDown Live Women's Championship against "The Empress Of Tomorrow" Asuka. We will have a live results article for tonight's SD Live, and a post-show podcast immediately after the show goes off of the air on the USA network.
