Ric Flair hospitalized, his son-in-law denies ‘medical emergency’ claim

WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair has had a long and illustrious career in professional wrestling. He also has had a series of medical issues. Now it seems he is once again in serious trouble.

According to TMZ Sports, Ric Flair was rushed to a hospital Thursday morning after suffering a medical emergency. While details regarding the emergency are unknown, they were told it was “very serious.”

“Ric Flair was rushed to a hospital Thursday morning after suffering a medical emergency, TMZ Sports has learned.

We’re told Flair was in the Atlanta area when something went wrong. The 70-year-old WWE legend was initially taken to the emergency room to be treated.

The specifics are unclear at this point — but we’re told the situation is “very serious.”

We reached out to Ric’s camp for comment — so far, no word back.”

Shortly after the story, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com posted the following update following a media call with Ric Flair’s son-in-law, Conrad Thompson:

Flair is no stranger to medical emergencies, as he had a medical scare back in 2017. After rupture of his intestines, he was placed in a medically induced coma for 11 days. Thankfully, he was able to pull through and made a full recovery.

We will also provide updates regarding Ric Flair’s condition as we learn more.

    UPDATE

    Ric Flair was at an Atlanta hospital this morning to undergo surgery.
    Flair’s son-in-law, Conrad Thompson, was on a media call today to
    promote Starrcast and said that the surgery was planned. Thompson added
    that it is not a grave situation.

    Thompson noted that Flair had planned to have the surgery before the Starrcast II convention next weekend in Las Vegas. Flair will be getting roasted at the event next Friday, May 24th.

    was not a last minute surprise for the family,” Thompson said. “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’s in good
    spirits about it and knew is was happening. He could choose to have it
    now or after Vegas. [Flair] decided to have it done now because he
    thought he’d be feeling good and wanted to get this behind him
    beforehand.”

    Thompson said he would not discuss the matter any further, and that
    it will be up to Flair or his wife to decide if they want to discuss any
    details.

    TMZ reported
    this morning that Flair was “rushed” to a hospital in Atlanta this
    morning and that the situation is “very serious.” However, Thompson’s
    comments would suggest that the situation is not near as serious as TMZ
    reported.

    “It’s not a last minute surprise situation,” Thompson noted.

    Flair also underwent surgery back in March, however the reason for that procedure was never made public. Flair appeared at WrestleMania 35 several weeks later, helping Triple H to defeat Batista.

    We
    will have more from the media call with Thompson this afternoon. You
    can hear his comments regarding Flair in the video above

    I seriously hope that Ric gets well soon.
    He has been a lucky man to be fair with the abuse he has put on his body through wrestling and “substances” over the years. Hopefully this will not catch up with him, and he can go on limousine riding for many more years.
