Report: Ric Flair hospitalized in Atlanta after suffering medical emergency


(ATLANTA) According to TMZ Sports, Ric Flair was rushed to an Atlanta hospital on Thursday morning after suffering a medical emergency.

TMZ says the 70-year-old WWE legend was initially taken to the emergency room to be treated for “very serious,” unspecified symptoms, according to TMZ’s source.

In 2017, Flair was in critical condition and close to dying when his intestine ruptured. He was put in a medically induced coma for 11 days and was eventually released from the hospital.

In 2018, “The Nature Boy” married his longtime girlfriend Wendy Barlow, who stayed with him and helped him through his medical issues.

In February, Ric had his 70th birthday party with numerous celebrity guests, including Todd Gurley, Charles Barkley, Jeff Hardy, Triple H, Evander Holyfield, and Dennis Rodman.
