This past week Ric Flair was hospitalized with what was said to be “tough medical issues” with “multiple organ problems” and was in a medically induced coma. But thankfully we finally have some promising news to report on the wrestling legend. Flair, who has been in an Atlanta-area hospital since August 12, is awake and cutting promos on nurses from his hospital bed.

Flair’s manager Melinda Morris Zanoni gave an optimistic, yet cautionary update on the Nature Boy’s health.

“Out of respect for family privacy there has not been an official Ric Flair update, which has led to false information. Don’t believe everything you read. Happy to report Ric is awake, communicating and progressing, but there are complications so he needs rest for the first time in forty years. He did cut a promo on a nurse yesterday so anyone that knows him knows that’s a very, very good sign. On behalf of Ric thank you for the outpouring of prayers and well-wishes (although the offers four a kidney seemed a little excessive). The man outlived a plane crash and being struck by lightning, he is a survivor. Grateful for all the love and respect sent his way.”

There are reports that the WWE Hall of Famer had an external pacemaker put in place to help with his heart and is currently on kidney dialysis. Flair’s recent surgery was considered a success, but there were complications and he is still in serious condition.

So here’s a hopeful WOOOOO for the one and only Ric Flair during his recovery.
