As previously reported, WWE Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair underwent surgery earlier today after recently being hospitalized for what has been reported by multiple sources to be heart-related issues.

In an update, it is being reported that Flair is still “not out of the woods yet,” the same comment of which was made on tonight’s edition of Raw by announcer Michael Cole.

Zanoni also asked fans to keep Flair, his fiancee Wendy, and Flair’s children in their prayers.

However, again, it must be stressed that this has not been officially confirmed as of yet.

As has also been previously reported, Flair has been in an intensive care unit ever since his hospitalization this past Saturday morning and was recently placed in a medically-induced coma.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
