Ric Flair to have surgery
Ric Flair will undergo surgery due to “ongoing health complications” on Friday (17.05.19).
The wrestling legend was hospitalised on Thursday (16.05.19) amid reports he had undergone a “very serious” emergency, but his wife, Wendy Barlow, has revealed the 70-year-old grappler is expected to make a full recovery after going under the knife.
Wendy said in a statement: “Due to ongoing health complications, Ric was taken to the hospital and is expected to undergo a procedure tomorrow morning, after which he expects to fully recover.”
Wendy’s statement came after Ric’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson - who is married to his daughter Megan - reassured fans he was not in “as grave or serious” condition as first thought and he was hopeful that he’d be well enough to travel to Las Vegas next week for Starrcast II.
