Ric Flair’s spokesperson, Melinda Morris Zanoni posted a positive update on Ric Flair’s condition on Twitter:

Ric Flair was taken to a hospital last week with abdominal pain and had to undergo surgery to remove an obstruction. Flair was put in a medically induced coma and put on kidney dialysis and was in critical condition. The situation was said to be “extremely bad,” but reports were that the outlook was looking a lot better in recent days, though Flair was not “out of the woods” yet. The fact that he’s awake and communicating is obviously a very good sign.
