Charlotte Flair made her WWE TV return on tonight's SmackDown from Tampa, her first action since the Money In the Bank pay-per-view in June. Flair was forced to take time away from the ring after having surgery to repair a ruptured breast implant.
Flair returned early in the show to save Becky Lynch from a beatdown by SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella. SmackDown General Manager Paige then made Flair vs. Carmella as the non-title main event with Flair earning a spot in the SummerSlam title match with Becky if she got the win. Flair won that match and Carmella will now defend her title in a Triple Threat at SummerSlam.
WWE SummerSlam takes place on August 19th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Below is the updated confirmed card coming out of tonight's SmackDown along with photos & videos of Flair's return:
