Flair provides a quick update.
One year ago the wrestling world was shocked as the two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair had a health scare that stemmed from Flair having surgery to remove a piece of his bowel. The surgery did not go as planned as there were a few complications including kidney failure and Flair ultimately ending up being placed in a medically induced coma.
Over the past year Flair has had his fair share of surgeries but those were minor compared to the sequence of events following last summer's surgery. Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated recently caught up with "The Nature Boy" and the two discussed the WWE Universal Championship main event match for this year's SummerSlam, Charlotte Flair's success since returning from her injury, and then Flair went in-depth about how he is feeling one year removed from his serious health scare last August.
“It’s almost a year ago, August 14th, when I went through everything with my surgery,” said Flair. “But now I feel great. I just had another surgery a couple weeks ago to reverse the stoma. Now I need a couple of months of rest, and I still can’t work out yet, but I feel fantastic, it’s a miracle. I’m not physically banged up,” said Flair. “I feel great. My knees, elbows, and back, they don’t bother me at all right now. When I look at my friends with back operations, hip replacements, knee replacements, I’m just thankful I’m in one piece because so many have been through a lot. Hulk has had like nine back operations. Guys in my generation and even the generation younger than me are all physically banged up much more than me, but I’m lucky to be doing great. Thank you to all who’ve asked.”
Speaking of SummerSlam, another championship match was recently confirmed for the "Biggest Party Of The Summer". For more information on that, click here.
