Ric Flair Hospitalized For Medical Procedure

Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair was rushed to the hospital this morning with a "very serious" medical emergency.

TMZ Sports reported this morning that Ric Flair was rushed to an Atlanta hospital for a medical emergency. In an update to this situation, Conrad Thompson spoke on his father-in-law Ric Flair’s condition during today’s Starrcast media call. He noted that the situation is not as serious as first reported by TMZ. Thompson noted that Flair planned to have the medical procedure done before his roast at Starrcast in Las Vegas.

Although details on Flair’s procedure are not available, Thompson noted that Flair has been dealing with some heart trouble as of late and the procedure was being done to address that.

Ric Flair’s 2017 Medical Scare

Flair was hospitalized back in 2017. He suffered a ruptured intestine and was placed in a medically induced coma for 11 days.

Flair was in critical condition at the time and was fighting for his life, at one point being given a small chance of survival. However, the 16-time World Champion pulled through. In the subsequent months, Flair looked to be in great health, even marrying his longtime girlfriend Wendy Barlow.

“The Nature Boy” also celebrated his 70th birthday on an episode of Monday Night RAW, participating in a big angle to set up Batista and Triple H’s WrestleMania 35 match – which he was also briefly involved in.

We’ll keep you updated on Flair’s condition as more information becomes available.
