On Tuesday, the WWE Hall of Famer, who was hospitalized last month amid a health scare with his heart, addressed his recovery on Instagram, crediting wife Wendy Barlow for keeping him going.
“If For Nothing Else, I Have This To Live For….What A Healing Process! WOOOOO! @thewonderouswendy,” Flair, 70, captioned alongside a photo of Barlow’s beach body as seen below.
The WWE legend, who recently proclaimed he wants to live until 95 since getting a pacemaker, married fifth wife Barlow in Florida last September.
Flair’s message comes on the heels of a recent rant against his former agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, in which he claims she stole his money.
“Let’s just start with the fact that she stole money from me,” he said in a video, posted Monday on YouTube. “She actually embezzled money from me — it’s documented, I’ve got the records, and I’ve talked to an attorney prior to making this video.”
In the 18-minute video, Flair said Zanoni ignored requests to renew his trademarks, letting his “Wooooo!” and “Ric Flair” trademarks to expire and they would have been lost without the help of WWE.
“Melinda, I don’t know how you live with yourself,” he said. “Twenty years friendship, 10 years my agent. Not a text, you didn’t drive down to the hospital. You just didn’t give a s—. And you assumed I was gonna die, like a lot of people did. And you just grabbed all the money you could run with.
Flair said he hopes his video gets Zanoni disbarred, noting that he spoke with an attorney before recording it. He also claims Zanoni called his wife Wendy Barlow, using a blocked number, and threatened her.
