Fans were sent into a panic when TMZ reported Ric Flair was “rushed to the hospital after suffering a medical emergency.” Considering his recent health issues, it was entirely reasonable for said fans to prepare for the worst.
Then, Conrad Thompson, Flair’s son-in-law, noted, via Fightful, that the situation wasn’t as grave as the TMZ report made it out to be. Now, Flair’s own wife has released a statement to TMZ to further clarify:
“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.”
That mostly lines up with what Thompson said. Either way, that sounds a whole lot better than the alternative.
All the best to Flair as he recovers.
