Ric Flair was rushed to hospital this morning (May 16) after suffering a medical emergency, it has been confirmed.
It has been reported that Flair was in the Atlanta area when something went wrong, with the WWE legend initially being taken to the emergency room to be treated.
Although the specifics are unclear, it’s thought the situation is ‘very serious’.
As reported by TMZ, Flair had a previous medical scare in 2017, when he was placed in a medically induced coma for 11 days after his intestine ruptured.
The WWE legend was in critical condition and on the verge of dying at the time, suffering from multiple organ failure and leading doctors to remove part of his bowel and fitting a pacemaker into his body.
Flair narrowly escaped death, with his family having been informed he only had a 20 per cent chance of survival. However, Flair eventually pulled through and just one year later he married his long term girlfriend Wendy Barlow.
Only last year, the WWE legend confirmed that he’d been cleared to get back into the ring, telling The Steve Austin Show he’d been cleared to ‘do anything’.
Flair said at the time:
I had difficulty doing anything when I still had that bag on my side that was attached to my intestines because it sat right at my waistline and it was hard, but as soon as I got that off, I was back doing 500 free squats.
To me, I just need a goal. Does that make sense? But I finally got the weight back on and then I found myself putting more weight back on than I wanted, so I have to be careful with that, but I’ve been working out. I can do anything, benchpress.
I have to be careful after surgery, the second surgery, for hernia issues. But I literally took it easy. I didn’t do anything. And now I’m full speed ahead.
The guys have cleared me to do anything. I’ve actually been cleared to get knocked down in the ring. I didn’t know if they were going to use me in some capacity and you know the clearances you have to have with the health policy, which is so adamant.
It’s not known whether his recent medical emergency is related to his previous health scare or not.
Our thoughts are with Ric and his family.
