Flair has a long road ahead of him but people around him (including his fiance Wendy Barlow) have called his recovery a major miracle. He has started using a walker and actually did a strut at the hospital so he is definitely feeling much better.
The Wrestling Observer newsletter reported that a few people such as Tony Schiavone (he lives in the Atlanta area where Flair has been hospitalized), Conrad Thompson, David Crockett, Michael Hayes, Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart, Steve Austin, and Paul “Triple H” Levesque have all been in touch with him. I believe Ricky Steamboat flew out to the hospital a couple of weeks ago.
Let’s hope that this scare will cause Flair to make a change in his lifestyle. His heart issues (attributed drinking and steroid use) date back over 14 years. He has admitted that his drinking got worse after the death of his son Reid. It’s great to see Ric doing better and hopefully, sooner rather than later, we’ll see him give a great speech on Monday Night Raw.
