Yesterday, wrestling legend Ric Flair was placed into a medically induced coma and underwent an unknown surgical procedure, sparking concern from the wrestling world. Though Flair's hospital visit was at first attributed to "routine testing," a message from Flair's management Monday said Flair was going through "tough medical issues" and asked for the prayers and positive energy of friends and fans as Flair went into surgery.
Are you all ready for some good news, for a change? Flair's surgery was successful, and, according to rep Melinda Morris Zanoni, wasn't heart-related, as originally reported by wrestling dirt sheets.
