Even after his recent ailments, Ric Flair has decided that he has no limits and has decided to learn how to ice skate. A hilarious video shows the retired pro wrestler stumbling around on the ice, admittedly giving it his very best shot.
At one stage, the footage shows him completely deck it, but not one to be shown up by a bit of frozen water, the 16-time world heavyweight champion gets straight back up again, giving it another go.
You would think that Ric, (real name Richard Morgan Fliehr), would be taking it as easy as possible, given his multiple health scares over recent years.
In particular, he made an incredible recovery two years ago when he was put on life support and placed in a medically-induced coma for 10 days after a medical emergency.
He had been given a diagnosis of the early stages of kidney and congestive heart failure, with doctors taking out part of his bowel, as well as giving him a pacemaker. At the time, his family was told he only had a 20 percent chance of survival - which, thankfully, he made it through.
In an interview with Wrestling Inc earlier this year, he said: "I was in a coma for 12 days, ICU for 31 days. I had kidney failure, respiratory heart failure, I was septic, and I had pneumonia all at one time, so I guess I was in so much pain they had to induce a coma because [wife Wendy Barlow] said I was just screaming.
"They couldn't give me enough medicine. And then, it took 12 hours to get me ready for surgery. And then, 12 days in a coma and 31 days I had to sit in intensive care. And then, I had to go to a rehab facility to learn how to walk and just starting from scratch again."
After he was finally released, he spoke about the reality of sitting around for an extended amount of time, essentially thinking about his own death.
However, the wrestling manager has been given the all clear by the medics.
He added: "The guys have cleared me to do anything. I've actually been cleared to get knocked down in the ring.
"I didn't know if they were going to use me in some capacity and [Austin] know[s] the clearances you have to have with the health policy, which is so adamant."
