It is being reported that WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair has been hospitalized for heart-related issues. Flair has a history of heart problems, and according to his management team, he is under observation for “routine monitoring”.
Details are scarce at this time, but apparently, Flair was admitted to the ICU this morning by his family. A representative for Flair’s management team released the following statement on his condition:
“Yes, Ric is checked into a hospital for some routine monitoring. No, there is no reason to panic.Yes, we’d like to thank his fiancé & the incredible hospital staff who are providing the best care. No, we cannot answer any personal questions. Yes, Ric would want you to go out and have a great weekend … Nature Boy style!”
There is no word on what facility Flair is at, but with his family admitting him, we can only assume he is in his home state of North Carolina. And, the ICU is an odd place to have “routine monitoring” done, but that is the story we have. Flair’s daughter Charlotte is missing SmackDown Live house shows this weekend due to being in Hong Kong for a WWE publicity tour.
We will continue to keep everyone updated on this story as more details become available to us.
