WWE posted the following to their website, issuing a statement on the recovery of Ric Flair, reiterating much of what we reported earlier today: Ric's doing much better and he'll be starting physical therapy soon.
Ric Flair is recovering and set to begin physical therapy following his Aug. 12 hospitalization and subsequent surgery, WWE.com has learned.
Flair’s fiancée, Wendy Barlow, provided an update on her Facebook page regarding the two-time WWE Hall of Famer’s condition.
“He is doing very well for man who has been through so much!” she wrote. “He will begin physical therapy shortly and will be stronger than ever and back out enjoying all the fans sooner than you would think.”
An update from Flair’s official Twitter account this morning was equally optimistic.
“Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were,” the post reads. “Naitch WILL be back!”
