nature boy ric flair update awake talking

There’s some good news on the Ric Flair front … as “The Nature Boy” is awake and communicating at the hospital according to one of his reps.

As we previously reported, Flair was hospitalized on Aug. 12 and a few days later he was put into a medically-induced coma to undergo surgery.

His fiancée released a statement on Wednesday saying the 68-year-old was still in critical condition with abdominal pain and issues with multiple organs.

However, his condition now seems to improving.  His rep released a statement on Saturday saying, “Happy 2 report [Ric Flair] is awake, communicating & progressing..but there are complications so needs rest for the 1st time in 40 yrs.”

In true Nature Boy fashion though, he apparently cut a promo on one of the nurses already.
