Ric Flair has plenty of fight left in him.
The wrestling legend known as “The Nature Boy” told his fans in an uplifting video he’s “back up and running” Saturday in an uplifting video message he shared on social media. Flair was in critical condition after undergoing surgery in early August, but his recovery now has reached a point where he’s willing to offer his fans a signature “whoo!”
Doctors induced Flair, 68, into a coma Aug. 14 amid what his representatives described as “tough” medical issues.
WWE superstar Charlotte, Flair’s daughter, encouraged fans a week later, telling them her father was getting better but not out of the woods.
Seven days later, Flair’s fianceé, Wendy Barlow, told her Facebook followers he’s on the mend and would soon begin physical therapy.
Now Flair speaks for himself, and his latest update will thrill wrestling fans young and old.
