One of the biggest stories of this past summer was WWE great Ric Flair being hospitalized because of a heart condition called alcoholic cardiomyopathy.
Alcoholic cardiomyopathy is a disease caused by alcohol abuse and usually results in heart failure by making it difficult for blood to reach the heart. If things are serious enough, it can affect other parts of the person's body as well.
It looked like there was a chance that Flair may not recover, and instead, pass away at the age of 68. Luckily, he's now recovering after undergoing surgery to remove an obstructive piece in his bowel. The obstructive bowel led to kidney failure, which means Flair will need to undergo dialysis.

It's great to see Flair up and about, but it's obvious that he's not 100 percent healthy. His daughter Charlotte recently stated that her father has a long way to go in his recovery. Flair also made a very interesting move recently after he decided to fire his agent Melinda Morris Zanoni of Legacy Talent Entertainment LLC.
No one seems to know why Flair decided to part ways with Legacy Talent Entertainment, but he has now decided to have Get Engaged represent him.
We speculated believes that Flair changed agents because Legacy Talent Entertainment was too open about his health condition, and just about told the world that he was dying. Then again, the doctors did say he had a small chance of surviving. Still, we can see why he might have been upset since Legacy could have done a better job of not being so transparent, but we may never get a real answer as to why Flair changed agents. Even after the public split between the two, Legacy Talent hasn't released any statements regarding the matter.
The only thing we can hope for is that one day down the road, Flair will open up and tell us what happened and what made him move on from Legacy Talent Entertainment, though that seems unlikely.
