Charlotte Flair will soon go under the knife.

The 32-year-old wrestling beauty is set to undergo surgery to correct a ruptured breast implant following the WWE’s European tour, according to PWInsider. The tour kicks off Thursday and commences May 20.

Flair is confirmed to participate in next month’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event, and it is unclear what the recovery timetable will be. She is said to have already been replaced by Carmella, who recently beat Flair for the Smackdown women’s championship, for the forthcoming ACE Comic Con event, per PopCulture.com, which runs from June 22-24 in Seattle.

The Flair family has dealt with a number of health scares in recent months, particularly patriarch Ric. After undergoing surgery last summer, removing part of his bowel and inserting a pacemaker, “Nature Boy” vowed never to drink again. At one point in his storied career, Ric admitted to guzzling “20 drinks a day.”

Charlotte Flair noted Wednesday the first stop of the tour is in Oberhausen, Germany, followed by Braunschweig on Friday.

The WWE has not commented on Flair’s status.
