If reports are to be believed, Ric Flair has suffered multiple organ failure and fighting for his life. The 68- year old Ric Flair reportedly was first taken to the hospital on Friday night.
The legendary former professional wrestler had complained of severe abdominal pain this past Friday. His condition, instead of improving has deteriorated further since then.
His fiancée Wendy Barlow, in a stratement said, “I have been unable to talk on the phone without crying and just feel shocked over events”.
A TMZ report said that his fiancée first took Flair to the hospital Friday night after he was complaining of severe abdominal pains … and “from that moment on it all seems like a nightmare.” “I want everyone to know he still needs prayers,” Barlow said … while noting that she hasn’t left Flair’s side and vows to give him “the best care possible.”
