Ric Flair’s suffered from medical issues in the past and pulled through from them each time. Unfortunately, he was taken to the hospital yesterday for a “very serious” emergency which prompted rumors that the legendary wrestler died. Those rumors have been shut down by Ric’s family who said that he’s expected to make a full recovery soon.
“RIC FLAIR IS NOT DEAD U DUMB ASS BLOGS,” he wrote on Twitter. “WTF U GETTING YOUR INFO FROM JIST TALKED TO MY MAN GOD IS WITH HIM HE HAS NOT PASSED AWAY STUPID ASS MF DONT WISH DEATH ON MY FRIEND HE HAD A LONG LIFE AND HE DONE IT ALL SOME BAD BUT MAJORITY GOOD HE IS A LEGEND GOD BLESS YOU RIC GET WELL.”
Flair’s son-in-law issued a statement this morning, explaining that the reports that emerged made it seem like Ric Flair’s condition was worse than it was.
“This is not a last-minute surprise surgery to family [members]. I knew that he was going to be having a procedure done today. I don’t think it’s nearly as grave or serious as TMZ would have us believe because Ric is in good spirits about it, knew it was happening,” Conrad Thompson said.
