On behalf of @RicFlairNatrBoy THANK YOU 4 the outpouring of prayers & well wishes (altho the offers 4 a kidney seemed a little excessive 🙂
The man outlived a plane crash & being struck by lightening, he is a survivor.Grateful 4 all the love & respect sent @RicFlairNatrBoy way 🙏🏻
Flair was admitted to the hospital last week, and he has since undergone at least one surgery. The surgery in question has been reported as a bowel surgery in order to remove a blockage. Flair is also reportedly dealing with kidney issues.
Flair is one of the most recognizable figures in pro wrestling history, having dominated the scene from the 1970s and well into the 1990s. Flair is recognized by WWE as a 16-time world champion, and he has been inducted into their Hall of Fame two times — once individually, and once as a member of the Four Horsemen.
