Richard Morgan Fliehr, the retired professional wrestler best known as Ric Flair, was taken to a hospital after suffering an unknown medical emergency.


The 70-year-old WWE legend was in Atlanta when the incident happened and was immediately taken to an emergency room to be treated.


Even though the details of the Nature Boy's medical issue have not been revealed, he is said to be in a “very serious” situation.


The recent health problem took place almost two years after Flair underwent surgery in Georgia to remove an obstructive piece of his bowel and fix his intestine ruptured that caused different complications, including kidney failure.

His situation was so severe that he was placed in a medically induced coma for 11 days.

Thankfully, the man survived and even tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Wendy Barlow, who was by his side the entire time.
