Ric Flair, also known as the “Nature Boy” when he’s in the wrestling ring, suffered a serious health emergency on Thursday while he was in Atlanta and was rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.
Flair has dealt with ongoing health issues for a while now, his wife Wendy Barlow told TMZ Sports. But, he’s supposed to undergo emergency surgery Friday morning and she expects him to make a full recovery. However, this incident is a very serious one and we can’t say for sure the severity of the health scare.
Now, in 2017 Ric Flair suffered some supposed heart and liver problems due to alcohol abuse and he claimed to have had somewhere around 20 drinks a day. He was induced into a coma for over a week and said he’d never drink again after almost dying.
But now with his current health situation, no one is really sure what the outcome will be this time. But we hope the legend can bounce back and make a full recovery after his procedure.
We’ll have any further details as they come in so stay tuned for more information regarding Ric Flair’s current health situation.
According to Fightful, Flair’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson said Ric’s condition isn’t as serious as TMZ had represented:
Conrad Thompson says the Ric Flair situation "is not as grave or serious" as TMZ makes it out, and says that this was a planned procedure that Ric Flair wanted to have before Las Vegas.
