Charlotte Flair Taking Time Out From WWE To Fix Breast Implants
The 34-year-old former champion was written out of the storylines last month, but has now taken to social media to explain her absence to fans.
She revealed that in 2018 she took time out after being poisoned by the leakage from her implants, but took the quick option so that she could resume her career as promptly as possible.
Now, she's had a similar problem and has decided to take longer off work so the problem is fixed once and for all.
This time, she doesn't have silicone poisoning, but wants to get the cosmetic work done to repair what's happened before.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, she said: "My air conditioning is broken, and we have a little free time. These tweets may be spaced out a bit, but we're going to talk time off, plastic surgery and boobs.
"The entire world having an opinion on the topic bothers me more than I care to let on, so we are going to discuss it.
"I'm going to save the history of my boobs for a different bedtime story, so: Picture it. Charlotte, North Carolina, 2018. A young queen, shortly after a career defining Wrestlemania victory, finds herself sicker than sick at her brother's house.
"A trip to the doctor tells us the likely culprit is silicone poisoning, and that my implant had been leaking for quite some time.

"It was one of the worse cases the doctor had seen. At that time, I had a few options to fix the issue. Each option had a specific recovery time."
"I love this job more than anything, so I picked the option that allowed me to return the soonest. That was the choice I made."
She continued: "Fast forward to a few months ago. Something felt off, so I went back to the doctor. Same issue again.
"This time, I'm going with an option that I believe will solve the issue long time, even though the recovery period is a little longer than I would like.
"To clarify: I do not have silicone poisoning this time. The surgery is cosmetic to fix an issue from a prior surgery. I'll be back when I'm ready.
"The body will be rested, and the mind still focused on legacy. Focused on this job. Focused on being better. Always being better."
When the wrestler, who is engaged to fellow WWE Superstar Andrade, was told by a fan that she doesn't have to justify her decisions regarding her cosmetic surgery, she said: "You're absolutely right; I do not owe anyone a thing.
"But I will not allow people to think I'm somehow ashamed of it for even a second longer."
