On Thursday, TMZ reported that Ric Flair had been rushed to hospital after suffering a medical emergency that they deemed “very serious”.
Flair’s son-in-law, Conrad Thompson, was holding a media call for Starrcast and downplayed the report. Thompson stated that Flair had scheduled the procedure ahead of time prior to his trip to Las Vegas next weekend for Starrcast. He added that the situation was not as serious as TMZ made it out to be, that Flair was not worried about this and he is scheduled for “The Roast of Ric Flair” next weekend.
Later in the day, Flair’s wife Wendy Barlow issued the following statement to TMZ:
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.
