What started out as a hospitalization for "routine monitoring" over the weekend took a serious turn today, as Ric Flair's rep tweeted and asked for "prayers" for the WWE legend who is "dealing with some tough medical issues."
By Monday afternoon, TMZ Sports had reported that the two-time WWE Hall of Famer had been placed under a medically induced coma and was preparing for surgery over a reported heart-related issue.
The news sent shockwaves to the pro-wrestling community and beyond, as people took to Twitter to pray for the 68-year-old's condition to improve and his speedy recovery. Woooo!
Not on their watch, 2017. Ain't happening.
Flair has too much sauce and swag for the Grim Reaper.
Get well soon, Ric Flair! Woooo!
