We have some positive news to share regarding WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair as TMZ reported on Monday evening that the legendary pro wrestler is currently recovering after undergoing successful heart surgery earlier today.
Flair’s wife Wendy Barlow told the media outlet that the operation was a success. She took the time to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this difficult time for their family.
It was added that Flair’s doctors are optimistic that he will make a full recovery. Despite this setback, he’s been good spirits over the past few days as he has spoken with some of his friends including Offset, who is a rapper.
Flair’s hospitalization all started last Thursday when he had a medical emergency. This led to him suffering complications that they were working around and the surgery being postponed until today.
As a result of this surgery, the pro wrestling legend had to back out of the Starrcast II weekend and “The Roast of Ric Flair.” He wasn’t healthy enough to make the trip by Friday evening to Las Vegas, Nevada.
As of this writing, there is currently no word yet on if the roast will be re-scheduled. We wish Flair a speedy recovery.
