As first reported by Ryan Satin from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Ric Flair has been hospitalized as of Saturday. According to ‘The Sheet’s’ source, the 16x WWE World champion was admitted to the ICU by his family.
Ric Flair’s Representative Comments
However, according to Flair’s rep, he was hospitalized due to “routine monitoring.” The representative stated on social media, “Yes, Ric is checked into a hospital for some routine monitoring. No, there is no reason to panic.”
Ric Flair’s representative then added a positive remark to the situation, “Yes, we’d like to thank his fiancé & the incredible hospital staff who are providing the best care. No, we cannot answer any personal questions. Yes, Ric would want you to go out and have a great weekend … Nature Boy style!”
At this point, there’s currently no word on what facility Flair is staying at. Conversely, his family did admit him, so presumably is will be in his home state of North Carolina.
Ric Flair daughter, Charlotte, is currently attending a Hong Kong WWE publicity tour, missing SmackDown house shows, so sadly she won’t be able to make a visit all that easily.
We would like to wish “The Nature Boy” nothing but the best and hope he’s doing well. We will keep you all informed as more details become available.
