Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio that Charlotte Flair will be taking a brief hiatus from WWE for the foreseeable future as she plans on tieing the knot with the AEW Star Andrade.

“That is, in fact, the case. It’s the angle to write her off to get married. So, yeah!”

Meltzer added that the nature of the injury should keep the decorated Superstar out of action for at least a couple of months.

“Well, if you do a broken arm injury, you have to be out of action for at least a couple of months, or else it’s kind of like a stupid injury to do, you know because it’d be so fake as you broke your arm and you’re back in four weeks. So, yeah, I don’t know how long.”
