Ric Flair's Health Issues

"Diamonds are forever and so is Ric Flair" may be true as it relates to the legendary character, but sadly the man himself is all too human.

Flair's reps put out a statement about his hospital stay which TMZ has here.  The concerning thing as Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet points out is that this was initially portrayed as a "routine monitoring," but the tone from Flair's reps has changed rapidly. 

I have no sources or anything like that obviously as I'm just a guy giving opinions out here.  I have heard though from someone who has seen Flair publicly that he has started dressing down a bit, and just doesn't have that same Flair aura. 

Whether this is indicative of health issues or something else going on* with the Nature Boy, it is a change from how he used to present himself out in public.

Anyhow, I hope Flair can beat this thing. As you likely know he is my absolute favorite wrestler of all time.  His reps requested thoughts and prayers so he will get those from South Atlanta Wrestling.

Take care, Ric.

*I don't mean to be too blunt here, but Flair's lifestyle choices are well-known and it's been strongly insinuated that they may be taking a toll on him
