Ric Flair talks his recent health scare, battle with alcoholism

Ric Flair talks his recent health scare, battle with alcoholism”

He was placed into a medically induced coma shortly after that and was rushed into surgery.

Flair's problem with alcohol started while he worked to build a camaraderie with his fellow wrestlers during the early days of his career in 1972.

Flair told People that it was actually WWE Superstar and daughter Charlotte Flair who informed him of how grave the situation was. "But as soon as work was over, I went right to the mill".

Weeks after what is now being referred to a brush with death that almost put an end to the limousine riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheeling-dealing sonuvagun, Flair and his family are opening up about his life and recovery. It helped them "bond", he says, noting that, "I never drank when I was working". He explained he's never drinking again because he doesn't want to go through this again.

"I crashed in an airplane and broke my back, I've been hit by lightning". His fiancee, Wendy Barlow, said the 68-year-old wrestling legend was dealing with multiple organ problems.

Doctors inserted a pacemaker and also removed a bowel to help alleviate the pain.

After all, we'd all love to see Ric Flair live a lot longer and participate in so many more historic moments in professional wrestling.

Flair went on to talk about his recuperation and said it "scared the sh-t out of me" and also noted he's "not out of the woods yet".

It's great to hear Ric Flair is doing better and even more fantastic he's making the decision to correct some of those mistakes he once made.

"I had one vice", Flair told Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso on August 17, before his hospitalization.
