Flair was hospitalized over the weekend after going in for “routine monitoring,” according to an original report from his reps. His condition apparently took a turn for the worse while in the hospital leading to the surgical procedure on Monday.
“We need your prayers, positive energy and well wishes for our Living Legend as he is dealing with some tough medical issues,” Talent and Entertainment reps said in a post Sunday night.
If one thing’s clear it’s that the “Nature Boy” will fight whatever he’s facing just as hard as he used to in the ring.
