Jerry Lawler on How Close to Death Ric Flair Really Was & How He Survived

After a major health scare, Ric Flair seems to miraculously be recovering nicely. The recent developments have been telling wrestling fans how serious it was for the Nature Boy, and now one of his long-time friends, Jerry Lawler, is shedding some more light on the situation according to Uproxx.

“Apparently it was really a touch and go situation, they explained to him [Ricky Steamboat], and when the Nature Boy had that first surgery, the doctors said that Ric had a 20% chance of survival of making it through that surgery. But we all know that he did pull through. And I heard yesterday, he’s already cutting promos on nurses.”

It’s just good to know that one of wrestling’s most beloved icons won’t be gone too soon.
