According to TMZ Sports original report, Ric Flair was rushed to a hospital Thursday morning after suffering a medical emergency. He was initially taken to the emergency room to be treated when something went wrong. The specifics were unclear at this point, but the situation was said to be “very serious.” Previously, Flair had a medical scare back in 2017.
In an update on the situation, it turns out TMZ blew the story out of proportion. The procedure was planned ahead of time, so there’s nothing to worry about.
Conrad Thompson says the Ric Flair situation "is not as grave or serious" as TMZ makes it out, and says that this was a planned procedure that Ric Flair wanted to have before Las Vegas.
