Ric Flair’s wife, Wendy Barlow gave a very brief statement about the current state of Ric Flair’s health:
“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.”
Currently, we’ve seen conflicting reports regarding the status of the Nature Boy. The initial reports from TMZ sounded like a very dire situation.
Ric Flair’s son-in-law, Conrad Thompson was very quick to say that what Ric Flair is going through was a planned procedure and not as serious as it was made to sound.
A tweet from Rajah suggests that Ric Flair was just having a new pacemaker put in and he will indeed make a full recovery:
Ric is fine, he is getting his pacemaker replaced. This is confirmed. Someone tweeted a much worse situation.
