• Good News Regarding Ric Flair’s Health
As we noted earlier, TMZ Sports reported that two time WWE Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair was rushed to a hospital earlier today due to a serious medical emergency.
During a Starrcast media call, Conrad Thompson revealed that Flair went to the hospital for a planned procedure and that the report TMZ put out was blown way out of proportion.
Conrad noted that Flair’s family knew about the procedure and that Flair wanted to get it done before Starrcast II (where a Ric Flair Roast will take place).
Conrad didn’t reveal any other information regarding Flair’s procedure and noted that it’ll be up to Flair and his wife if they want to reveal the details.
