The world of wrestling continues to pray for the health of the great Ric Flair , who since he went to the hospital for a simple checkup last Friday has been presenting new symptoms and had to undergo surgery. Although the worst part has already passed, the two-time WWE Hall of Fame is still in critical condition and may require further intervention in the coming hours.
Since his hospitalization was known, there were many versions of the problem that led to his current state. “Mean” Gene Okerlund , for example, a friend of the legendary Nature Boy, shared with his Facebook followers having heard that his colleague had been operated on from the colony while asking for prayers to the fans. This last one also replicated other personalities of the world like Kurt Angle, John Cena, Jim Ross, among many others.
But it turns out that the complications presented by the Dirty Game Player do not come from that side. This was confirmed by his partner, Wendy Barlow, who offered an update on Flair in social networks and cleared many of the unknowns formulated in the last few hours in a brief but concise statement:
“I want to give an update to my friends and family since I have not been able to talk on the phone without crying and not feeling shocked by the events … I took Ric to the hospital on Friday night because I had a bad pain in the abs. From that moment forward everything seems like a nightmare … multiple problems in the organs. I do not want to dwell on the details but I want you to know that you still need your prayers and you are in a critical situation. And no, he did not have colon surgery … it was another surgery! I do not know where these stories come from. I have been by your side since Friday and will continue to ensure that you are receiving the best possible care. Thank you for all the support and love. “
Meanwhile, the reactions of fighters, legends, announcers, fans, celebrities and people around them have not stopped. Here we leave some of them:
