“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is dealing with heart-related issues in an ICU and his manager now says the wrestling legend needs your prayers — prompting the WWE universe to oblige.
Flair’s rep tweeted on Sunday night saying, “Are u a Fan/Friend of Ric Flair?If so, we need prayers & positive energy 4 our Living Legend as he is dealing w/some tough medical issues.”
As we reported over the weekend, Flair was admitted on Saturday by his family.
Ric’s manager had initially claimed the 16 time champion was only in the hospital for “routine monitoring,” but that’s clearly not the case. According to TMZ, Flair has been put into a medically induced coma and is prepping for surgery.
Many WWE stars have sent well wishes to Flair on social media, a few of which can be found below.
Sending my love and prayers to @RicFlairNatrBoy and his family.
