During last night’s halftime show for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks vs. Denver Nuggets game, Charles Barkley revealed two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair will be undergoing surgery today (Fri. March 15, 2019). Barkley offered well wishes to Flair before his operation, which was followed by some “Whoos!” from the crowd.
PWInsider confirmed this with a report, saying Flair is, in fact, undergoing surgery today. The nature of Flair’s situation remains unknown, however. It’s unclear why exactly Flair is undergoing surgery today, or if it’s related to his 2017 health scare. The 16-time World Champion had a significant piece of his bowel removed after an intestinal blockage.
Flair was hospitalized for over a month after the surgery. There was a point where doctors gave “The Nature Boy” a slim chance at survival. However, Flair returned to full health several weeks later. He also had an external pacemaker inserted in order to help his heart beat normally. We’ll keep you updated on Flair’s status as more information continues to be made available.
