TMZ Sports caught up with “Nature Boy” Ric Flair on Friday, following his recent health issues.
Flair said he was hospitalized 4 times in 7 weeks. He said doctors were finally able to figure out what type of pacemaker he needed for his heart.
Flair noted that the recent hospital stay was because of a blood clot but he is feeling better and plans on living for another 25 years. That is the reason why his heart procedure was delayed. Flair previously had blood clots in his leg in 2013. This time, the blood clots were in his leg and chest.
He mentioned some of the big celebrities that reached out to him while he was in the hospital. Those names included rapper Offset, Hulk Hogan, Charles Barkley, Ted DiBiase, Josh Reddick, Kevin Greene, Bruce Smith, Darius Rucker and Ricky Steamboat. He also said the McMahon family has checked on him, including Triple H and Vince McMahon.
He ended the interview by thanking everyone that reached out to him. One person he did not mention was Shawn Michaels. Sadly, it looks like Flair and Michaels are not on good terms these days. Click here to hear what Flair said about Michaels on Friday.
