On May 8, Flair defended the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey in a brutal “I Quit” Match. In the end, Rousey defeated “The Queen” by wrenching her arm un a chair-assisted cross armbreaker.
Later in the show, Kayla Braxton announced that she had been talking to WWE officials, and they told her that Flair fractured her radius.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select subsequently reported that Flair was expected to be taking time off, so the injury angle was set up to write her off. Ross Sapp noted that it’s unclear whether Flair’s absence will start right away. The duration of her time away is also currently unknown.
WrestleZone will provide more details as they become available.
