Ric Flair is a 2 times WWE Hall of Famer and regarded as one of the best professional wrestlers of all time. He has won multiple World Heavyweight Titles in his career. He was even wrestling in the 2000s and had a career that lasted nearly 3 decades.
Now, he is no longer an active wrestler and health problems have hit him hard. Ric Flair has had a few medical scares over the past few years. He underwent heart surgery on Monday and he just spoke for the first time to the public using his Instagram account recently.
He wrote: "The Naitch Is Home!!! Thank You To All The Incredible Staff And Doctors At Gwinnett Medical Center Once Again! I Am So Thankful For All My Family, Friends, And Fans For All The Love. At This Time In My Life, I Never Take It For Granted.
I Will Be Back Up And WOOOOOing In No Time!" Due to this medical scare, The Nature Boy couldn’t make it to “The Roast of Ric Flair” which was going to take place in Las Vegas at Starrcast II this Friday.
He underwent heart surgery on Monday. His doctors told him not to travel to Vegas. Now, the roast will take place some other time. His wife Wendy Barlow told his fans that the operation was a success earlier.
