Beloved Sports Legend Suffers Medical Emergency, In ‘Very Serious’ Condition

May 16, 2019

WWE legend and fan favorite Ric Flair reportedly suffered a medical emergency and was rushed to the hospital on Thursday morning.

TMZ reports, “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.“

Efforts were made to reach out to Ric’s representatives for an update but, so far, there’s been no response.

This latest incident comes on the heels of a previous medical emergency the wrestling star suffered back in 2017.

“He was placed in a medically induced coma for 11 days after his intestine ruptured. Flair was in critical condition and on the verge of dying.”

Flair recovered from that serious medical event and went on to have a couple of good years.

TMZ tells us, “'The Nature Boy’ pulled through -- and a year later, he married his longtime girlfriend Wendy Barlow ... who stuck by his side throughout the entire medical scare and subsequent recovery.”

Flair recently had a huge celebration for his 70th birthday with friends and colleagues like Todd Gurley, Charles Barkley, Jeff Hardy, Triple H, Evander Holyfield and Dennis Rodman in attendance.

Please join us in praying for the wrestling legend’s complete recovery.
