Ric Flair’s manager has provided an update on The Nature Boy’s status and we finally have a positive update. Below is the detailed update provided by Legacy Talent and Entertainment, LLC:
“Out of respect for family privacy there has not been an official Ric Flair update, but that has led to a lot of false information. Don’t believe everything you read. Happy to report Ric Flair is awake, communicating and progressing…but there have been complications so he needs rest for the first time in 40 years. He did cut a promo on a nurse yesterday so anyone that knows Ric knows that’s a very good sign. On behalf of Ric THANK YOU for all the outpouring of prayers and well wishes (although the offers for a kidney seemed a little excessive) 🙂 The man outlived both a plane crash and being struck by lightening…he is a survivor. Beyond grateful for all the love and respect sent Ric’s way.”
According to Dave Meltzer, an external pacemaker was inserted to help make Flair’s heart beat normally. It should be noted that Flair never suffered a heart attack and the initial pain was only because of obstruction in his bowel.
