New reports have emerged about WWE legend Ric Flair’s health following his gruesome last match in Nashville, Tennessee.
Many fans were concerned about Ric Flair’s well-being as there were a few scary moments during Flair’s main event clash. New reports claim that the medical team checked on Ric Flair immediately after he competed in the tag match.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider stated that two doctors examined Ric Flair and sources close to the situation revealed that Nature Boy was doing “great” after the match backstage.
Ric Flair was unsurprisingly exhausted after the tag team match as the doctors gave him time to rest and catch his breath. The WWE Hall of Famer was apparently starving and told people he planned to grab something to eat before celebrating with his friends and family.
Most importantly, Flair proved his detractors wrong and emerged from his swan song without severe injuries.
“The doctors were waiting for him the second he returned to the locker room area. He was obviously spent after the bout, but after resting and being checked out, he was saying he was starving and wanted to go eat. So, as scary some of the PPV bout was [especially the last third of the bout], we are told Flair is fine and heading out for the rest of his evening in Nashville,” Johnson reported.
