Ric Flair

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has discussed the latest condition of Charlotte Flair and explained why she won’t be back in the ring ahead of schedule.

Charlotte Flair is out of action for nine months after suffering a serious knee injury. During a match against Asuka during the special Tribute To The Troops episode of SmackDown, the star fell awkwardly from the top turnbuckle onto the ring ropes.

As a result of the accident, Flair suffered a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus, while there have also been reports that she sustained a neck injury. The star underwent surgery on her knee in early January 2024.

Ric Flair Explains Why Charlotte Flair Will Be Out For 9 Months

Now Ric Flair has appeared on Busted Open Radio where he discussed his daughter’s condition and ruled out a surprise early return for The Queen despite being ahead in her rehab:

I think she’s the greatest. I think she’s arguably one of the two or three best wrestlers, period, in the company and she looks better physically now than she did when she started. I mean, she’s so committed to meal plans and her workouts.

She’s so far ahead now in this rehab but she just has to, you know, keep it in mind that she’s gotta follow Dr.’s dues and orders, and it’s got to be a nine-month recovery, no matter how good she feels.

One other WWE star has returned months ahead of schedule as they set their sights on winning gold once again in the company.
