WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is reportedly out of surgery after being placed in a medically induced coma earlier today.
The update from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer revealed Flair's situation is still 'real bad' and likens what he is going through to that of his Father who he lost to cancer recently. Meltzer noted that Flair's kidneys are functioning and he has no cancer. f4WOnline report Flair was scheduled to have surgery this week but it's unknown whether the surgery today was the original surgery scheduled or a new surgery.
Few details have been released officially by Flair's management other than he has been hospitalized since Saturday with heart-related issues. A number of sources reported today that Flair was put into a medically induced coma and he has been dealing with a bacterial infection and alcohol related issues.
Flair has a bad history with alcohol having developed something called “alcoholic cardiomyopathy,” a weakening of heart muscles” he revealed in his 2014 autobiography.
The fact Flair has made it out of surgery with no apparent complications is great news, of course, his recovery still has some way to go. We wish Flair all the best.
