Positive Updates Continue to Surface Regarding Ric Flair

Ric Flair’s fiance, Wendy Barlow, updated fans on the health of “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair after Flair was taken to the hospital Friday night due to severe abdominal pain. Flair was taken into surgery, and many outlets reported that it “didn’t look good” for the 16-time world champion. After taking Flair to the hospital, Barlow stated: “From that moment on it all seems like a nightmare.”

Barlow said that Ric Flair is now dealing with ‘multiple organ problems.’ The details on Flair’s health are in a bit of a gray area right now. Barlow was able to shut down the reports that Flair went into have colon surgery saying in her social media post “And no he did not have Colon Surgery….It was another surgery! I don’t know how the media comes up with their stories”.

TMZ Sports was able to get this screenshot from Barlow’s social media that gives the information on the update.

Days later, reports said that Flair seems to be in better shape than when he went into the hospital. Barlow did say that the 68-year-old Flair is still in critical condition and he still needs everyone’s prayers. Reportedly, Flair was induced into a coma for his surgery on Friday night or Saturday morning. However, it is imperative to note that this, as well as many of the reports and rumors, are not confirmed, and few truly know about Flair’s health.

Charlotte Flair posted on her Instagram about the situation with just a quick post, thanking fans for their prayers for her father.

Barlow’s update has been very helpful, and we hope to have more update on the WWE legends health soon. Hopefully, Flair will kick out at two, and we’ll him elbow dropping his suit jackets and stylin’ and profilin’.

Get well soon, Naitch!



There have been some new developments regarding Ric Flair’s health. Charlotte has revealed more information on her Instagram:

“After an incredibly hard week, my dad is getting better. There is still a long road to go, and he’s not out of the woods just yet, but I want to again thank everyone for their support on behalf of myself and my family. My dad has given his life to sports entertainment. To everyone competing tonight, you know he’d be backstage watching if he could. Give it a little extra flair for him tonight. Woooo!”

This post is great news for Flair and looks like he is getting better by the hours.

Also, Melinda Morris Zanoni has given fans a reason to smile in this difficult situation. Tweeting that Flair has even cut a promo on a nurse, so anyone that knows Flair knows that’s a very good sign. Both Charlotte Flair and Zanoni have made it clear that “The Nature Boy” is not out of the woods, but things are looking up more and more as the days progress.
