What Happened To Ric Flair? Is American Wrestler In The Hospital?
Flair suffers from alcoholic cardiomyopathy, a cardiac condition. The American professional wrestler underwent surgery in Georgia on August 14, 2017, to remove an obstruction in his intestines.
This procedure had several unintended consequences, the most serious of which was renal failure, which required dialysis and required Flair to remain hospitalized.
On September 21, he received a release from treatment and was permitted to go home. Despite still having a pacemaker in his chest, he miraculously recovered. The WWE icon declared that he would avoid situations that would put him in danger and would not fully return to the way of living that almost cost him his life.
