WWE legend Ric Flair was put in a medically induced coma before undergoing surgery Monday, according to TMZ. One of Flair’s representatives tweeted that the surgery “was a success” and that it was not related to his heart. 

Flair was hospitalized over the weekend and his management team asked for prayers as he battles the medical issues.

Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC, took to Twitter on Monday morning. On Saturday, she noted that he was in the hospital for routine monitoring and there was no reason to panic but her most recent tweets signaled a tone change. 

"Are u a Fan/Friend of Ric Flair?" she wrote. "If so, we need prayers & positive energy 4 our Living Legend as he is dealing w/some tough medical issues."

Zanoni provided an update later Monday. 

Rory Karpf, the director of the upcoming Ric Flair 30 for 30, also asked for prayers for the wrestler.
