Ric Flair had health issues recently and went through a scary situation and is now in a medically induced coma!
According to the representatives of Ric Flair, he is now resting after undergoing surgery this Monday. CEO of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, Melinda Morris Zanoni recently published a tweet where she claimed that the surgery wasn’t heart related!
We have no further details about the situation since neither WWE nor Zanoni went on to uncover something more. We do know that Ric was placed into a medically induced coma before the procedure and this was confirmed by a WWE representative on Monday.
Ric Flair was rushed into E.R. last weekend, and he was later placed in an intensive care unit. Zanoni originally downplayed the severity of the situation but later tweeted a plea for support and prayers.
According to Zanoni, Ric was hospitalized on Saturday, and it was all just ‘a routine monitoring.’ Ric is being treated in a facility near his home in Atlanta according to PW Insider’s Mike Johnson.
