Ric Flair is expected to undergo a medical procedure today. He was originally scheduled to have the procedure done last week but it was postponed due to complications. According to a report from TMZ, Flair is in good spirits and expected to make a full recovery but he has had to pull out of the planned “Roast of Ric Flair” scheduled for Starrcast this weekend.

“A spokesperson for Flair tells us … unfortunately, Ric won’t be healthy enough by Friday evening to make the trip from Atlanta to Vegas,” the report reads.

As of this writing, Starrcast has yet to confirm the news.

Ric Flair Health Update

TMZ originally reported last week that Flair had been rushed to hospital due to an emergency medical situation. This was later refuted by Conrad Thomspon and Wendy Barlow, Flair’s wife and son-in-law. They stated this was a planned medical procedure.

Wendy Barlow released the following statement regarding Flair’s condition:

“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.”

She would later address the procedure’s postponement.

“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.”

Conrad Thompson had the following to say regarding Flair’s condition yesterday:

“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”
