Becky Lynch, Lana or Carmella will have a second shot in the Mixed Match Challenge after an injury forced Charlotte Flair out of Tuesday night's match.

PWInsider.com's Mike Johnson reported Flair underwent oral surgery March 21, which came a day after she lost to Natalya on SmackDown Live. The procedure isn't expected to keep her out for WrestleMania 34.

Flair is set to defend the SmackDown Live Women's Championship against Royal Rumble winner Asuka on April 8 in New Orleans.

WWE announced it's holding a Facebook poll to determine Bobby Roode's tag team partner against Sasha Banks and Finn Balor, with Lynch, Lana and Carmella the three options.

Roode and Flair are one match away from the final, having defeated Rusev and Lana in the quarterfinals. In that sense, Roode and Lana would make for an odd dynamic if The Ravishing Russian won the fan vote.

Should Roode and his mystery partner prevail, they would take on Asuka and The Miz to determine the inaugural Mixed Match Challenge winner.
