The 11-time Women’s Champion took to Twitter on Monday evening to share with the world that she had tested COVID-19 positive. Almost an hour later, WWE acknowledged this when Rhea Ripley mentioned it during her debut promo.

Charlotte’s father, Ric Flair, wished her a speedy recovery and wrote something that grabbed eyeballs. Alongside the wishes, he revealed that WrestleMania will not be the same without her, suggesting she won’t make a full recovery till the ‘Show of Shows.’

The Queen‘ had challenged Asuka to a Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania 37 last month. The ‘Empress of Tomorrow’ didn’t answer as she was recuperating from an injury. However, before anything could happen, Charlotte, too, disappeared from WWE Television.

Charlotte Flair’s sudden disappearance from WWE programming made fans think if something had gone wrong. After all, Andrade had also asked for his request from the company around the same time. However, a tweet from her put down all those rumors.

Will Charlotte really miss WrestleMania?

While Ric Flair said WrestleMania won’t be the same without ‘The Queen,’ her boyfriend Andrade is saying something else. Andrade’s tweet suggested Charlotte would be free from quarantine in four days and motivated her to make her way back to the WrestleMania poster.

We don’t really know whose tweet to consider as more legitimate. Plus, we aren’t doctors. Although Charlotte might be out of quarantine in four days, will she be WrestleMania ready after all the medication is a question. We must wait to find out.

However, one must never say never in the WWE. If Drew McIntyre can make it for his match against Goldberg at the Royal Rumble despite recovering from COVID, then maybe Charlotte Flair can as well. What do you think?
