It looks like two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair is set to undergo surgery today (Fri. March 15, 2019). During last night’s halftime show for the Dallas Mavericks vs. Denver Nuggets NBA game, Charles Barkley wished “The Nature Boy” well before his surgical procedure on Friday.
This was followed by several “Whoos!” from the crowd. PWInsider has now confirmed that Flair will, in fact, be undergoing surgery today. It’s unclear what the nature of the situation is at this time. As of this writing, there has been no word on it being related to Flair’s health scare from 2017. Flair had an intestinal blockage which resulted in a significant piece of his bowel being removed.
Following surgery, he was hospitalized for over a month, during which time he at one point was given a slim chance of survival. Flair also had an external pacemaker inserted to help his heart beat normally. We’ll keep you updated on Flair’s situation as more information becomes available.
