Ric Flair Makes First Public Comment Since Health Scare

The WWE and wrestling world as a whole has been on the edge of their seats when it comes to the health of Hall of Fame wrestler Ric Flair, who was admitted to an Atlanta hospital for routine tests and ended up staying due to organ failure just a few weeks ago.

The Nature Boy ended up being put into a medically induced coma in an effort to help him overcome the organ failure as well as an infection. At one point people weren't sure if Flair would pull through but were finally able to exhale when a report came out days ago that his health was improving.

Flair's fiancee Wendy Barlow recently posted a very positive message on Facebook when it comes to his health status.

“He is doing very well for man who has been through so much!” she wrote. “He will begin physical therapy shortly and will be stronger than ever and back out enjoying all the fans sooner than you would think.”


Flair proved to the world on Tuesday that he's doing much better and is healthy enough to use Twitter. He made it clear that he will bounce back after being knocked down.

There is a report from PWInsider.com that Flair is ambulatory, and is able to walk with assistance as he gets ready to undergo surgery in order to insert a pacemaker into his chest.

The 68-year-old Flair is a wrestling icon and there aren't any doubts in my mind that the WWE and the wrestling world will have one big party when he makes his first public appearance once he's healthy enough to do so. Once the surgery is complete, Flair will then undergo physical therapy, according to WWE.com.


More good news is that the Table for 3 episode that features Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, and Sting, which ended up being removed from the WWE Network, will air in mid-September.

One thing is for sure, as one of the all-time greats, Flair knows how to get back up after being knocked down.

We will continue to keep Flair and his loved ones in our thoughts and prayers as he fights to regain his strength and hopefully back inside the ring.
