According to his representative, Ric Flair is awake and even cut a promo on a nurse in the hospital.
WWE legend Ric flair is awake and progressing after being put in a medically induced coma and having surgery earlier this week, according to one of his representatives Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC.
Flair, 68, was hospitalized last weekend for what Zanoni initially described as "routine monitoring." The following day she asked for friends and fans of the WWE Hall of Famer to send "prayers and positive energy," as Flair was dealing with "tough medical issues."
There were reports that Flair was dealing with heart-related issues, but after the surgery Monday, Zanoni stated that was not the case.
