Ric Flair to Undergo Surgery
During the TNT NBA halftime show on Thursday night, Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley wished “Nature Boy” Ric Flair well ahead of surgery Friday.
Barkley, who is a close friend of Flair’s, did not disclose what type of surgery Flair is having.
In 2017, Flair underwent a surgical procedure and spent time in the hospital. Flair said that he was only given a 20 percent chance to live at one point.
The 16-time world champion has since bounced back, and he celebrated his 70th birthday on Feb. 25. Flair appeared on Raw on his birthday and even got involved in an angle with Batista returning to drag him along the ground in an effort to get Triple H’s attention.
Barkley was among those in attendance at Flair’s surprise 70th birthday party in Atlanta, and he is one of many wishing Flair well.
