• Ric Flair Recalls Hall of Famer Rescuing Him After He Fell Off A Boat

During a recent edition of “School of Morton” podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recalled fellow Hall of Famer Ricky Morton rescuing him after he fell off a boat.

Below are the highlights:

On being hospitalized in August:

“I got a really sharp pain in my stomach. I knew the pain. That was very similar to the pain I had the last time. Wendy took me to the hospital and my intestine had broken open and that’s the last thing I remember. I don’t remember anything else. On Monday they put me in an induced coma.

I stayed in that and on life support for 11 days. I don’t remember any of it. I just dreamt… I had to learn how to walk again. I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t twist the top off a Gatorade bottle or open a diet coke I lost forty-three pounds.”

On falling off a boat and Ricky Morton rescuing him:

“I was trying to figure out my way. It was about a mile to the shore each way… maybe a little less I was trying to figure out which way was closer when you guys found me.”

On how to live life:

“For me I would say make the most of every day. When you come close to losing that opportunity it makes you realize all the more how lucky you are to have that opportunity. So make the most of every day.”
