According to a source, Ric Flair will be released from the hospital today after being admitted last week.
As noted, Ric Flair missed WWE NXT Takeover due to being hospitalized in Georgia. Flair had surgery, causing him to miss this week’s SmackDown tapings and Night of Champions. People within WWE expect Flair to be back on TV soon, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Jim Ross wrote the following about Flair in his latest blog.
“Now sources are saying Ric Flair had an appendicitis attack and then the doctors found a hernia which both are considered minor surgeries but my take on that is that no surgery is ‘minor’ when a guy is 65 years old. Details are still unconfirmed but we hope that Flair heals quickly.”
