Ric Flair’s wife Wendy Barlow recently released a statement regarding the medical condition of the 16x World Champion.
“Ric’s surgery has been postponed until Monday to address some complications that needed to be taken care of first,” Barlow’s statement reads. “Thanks for all the well wishes.”
Ric Flair Medical Procedure
There were some conflicting reports regarding the 70-year old’s condition yesterday. The initial report from TMZ stated that Flair had been rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital due to a serious medical emergency. Conrad Thompson would later refute the severity of the Flair’s condition, however. Thompson stated that the procedure was planned ahead of time. He also noted that Flair was looking to have it done before he is roasted at Starrcast II next week.
“Due to ongoing health complications, Ric was taken to the hospital and is expected to undergo a procedure tomorrow morning, after which he expects to fully recover,” a statement from Wendy Barlow released yesterday reads.
It is not clear what procedure Flair is having done. It has been mentioned that he has been dealing with some heart-related issues, however.
“Ric was not worried about this,” said Thompson. “Ric did not think this was going to be reported or on TMZ. It’s all systems go. The Roast of Ric Flair is still happening”
