It’s been widely reported that Charlotte Flair was sidelined for surgery to repair a ruptured breast implant. In a new interview, however, Flair revealed she actually busted both.
The multi-time women’s champion sat down with Maria Menounos on SiriusXM radio Monday and discussed the injury, which she says began with pain behind her shoulder blade.
After getting a mammogram and ultrasound, doctors found free floating silicone due to the ruptured implants and said she needed to go under the knife.
“I got a lot of big things coming up. I knew I had Wrestlemania; I knew I had the body issue. I just wasn’t going to say anything. Could I just wait? I finally got to have them redone a little over four weeks ago,” Flair explained.
Unfortunately, in waiting to get the surgery done, the situation continued to deteriorate. “I got sick a few times — that may have been from it,” Flair recalled. “The silicone got all the way in my armpit.”
Charlotte revealed she’s cleared to return to action on July 31 and plans to be back in the ring that night. The 32-year-old also said it’s tough to come to the realization she’s been sidelined for what she called “not a legitimate injury.”
“I’m sitting out because of my tatas!”
