WWE Hall of Famer and Nature Boy Ric Flair is set to undergo surgery today (March 15), as was announced by Charles Barkley during the NBA halftime show of the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets game last night.
As of right now, PWInsider are reporting that the nature of the surgery is unknown, but we will update you if this information becomes available.
There is no reason to believe that this has anything to do with the serious procedure Flair underwent in 2017, when he suffered an intestinal blockage which resulted in a part of his bowel being removed. He was hospitalised for a month and there were serious concerns that he may not recover.
Speaking to Busted Open Radio at the time, Flair said:
“When I got out I only weighed 206 pounds, I lost 43 pounds. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t even twist the top off a Gatorade bottle. I could stand on my legs, but I couldn’t walk, so I had to go to a rehab place for 20 days of physical rehab where they make you walk with a walker, and then a cane, and then you learn to walk by yourself. That took a while, and then I couldn’t drive a car. I ate anything in the world, but couldn’t gain any weight because all the food I was consuming was going towards repairing internal tissue that was ruined because when I went into the hospital my kidneys failed, I had respiratory heart failure and I had pneumonia all at the same time.”
Everyone at WrestleTalk wishes Ric Flair a speedy recovery.
