As the Backlash witnessed Ronda Rousey fracturing Charlotte Flair’s arm, forcing her to say “I quit”, the audience present around the arena would be absolutely shocked. However, going by the reports this was a necessary move as Charlotte would be taking a break from the ringside to savor her espousal to Andrade and celebrate their honeymoon.
In a run-up to the rematch at WrestleMania Backlash, Ronda pledged to break Charlotte’s arm and she did keep her promise in a brutal slugfest where she would apply the armbar on Charlotte through a steel chair that would compel her to utter the words “I quit”.
This is what the rumors about Charlotte Flair sounds like
After the event, WWE would go on to announce that Charlotte had suffered a fractured radius. Eminent talker of Sports entertainment, Pat McAfee would explain to the audience what exactly is a radius, and the injury that would keep Charlotte out for a while.
Kayla Braxton was the one to break out the news but she didn’t mention any specific schedule for her recovery. Going by the general medical context, ideally, a fractured radius would take three months to heal. However, as Sean Ross Sapp of Frightful Select and Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio would report, Flair is going to take some time off to marry her long-time enamor, Andrade.
However, now with Flair out of the equation for a while, WWE will be looking forward to picking out the best possible contenders who can match the steam of Ronda Rousey. Talks suggest that Lacey Evans may already be doing the rounds.
About Flair’s return, it is still a dicey affair but it is expected that she will be making an official statement about the injury and the probable return date which the audience would be eagerly waiting for. At the WrestleMania Backlash, she would match Ronda punch for punch, making it one of the most aggressively contested bouts of the night.
