WWE legend Ric Flair was hospitalized Thursday morning, though details are scarce.
TMZ reports that Flair, 70, was in Atlanta when he had an undisclosed medical emergency. He was transported and treated in an emergency room.
TMZ reported Ric Flair was “rushed to the hospital after suffering a medical emergency.” Considering his recent health issues, it’s entirely reasonable for said fans to prepare for the worst.
Then, Conrad Thompson, Flair’s son-in-law, noted, via Fightful, that the situation wasn’t as grave as the TMZ report made it out to be. Now, Flair’s own wife has released a statement to TMZ to further clarify:
While it’s not clear what condition Flair suffered, a source told the site that it’s “very serious.”
Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Flair has been suffering from a heart condition as of late and that his hospitalization was in relation to that.
However, pro wrestling podcaster Conrad Thompson told Fightful that the situation “is not as grave or serious” as reports have suggested and that Flair was undergoing a planned procedure.
Nature Boy previously had a series of medical scares in 2017.
He was hospitalized that August and underwent surgery, though no further details were provided on what plagued him. He was given a 20 percent chance at survival. And he surprisingly made it out. We hope he makes this out too
All the best to Flair as he recovers.
