Ric Flair Is Awake And Has Reportedly Cut A Promo On A Nurse

Ric Flair Is Awake And Has Reportedly Cut A Promo On A Nurse

There have been few to cut a promo quite as good as the stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun Ric Flair.

And it seems that even from his hospital bed, the former wrestler can't keep his charisma to himself.

Despite being rushed to hospital and reportedly having an external pacemaker put in place and currently being on kidney dialysis, he's awake and even cut a promo on a nurse, Wrestle Zone reports.

As ridiculous as it sounds, you can fully imagine Flair doing this. "WOOOO! To be the man, you gotta beat the man, WOOOO! And nurse, let me tell ya, I'm every woman's dream and every man's nightmare, WOOOO! And there it is, a $30,000 hospital gown, WOOOO! A $20,000 gold Rolex in the surgery room, WOOOO! I can take more punishment than anyone in the business, WOOOO! Because I'm the stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun, WOOOO!"

If this WCW promo with Mean Gene Okerlund is anything to go by, then the nurse must have had a good day...

His recent surgery was considered a success, according to reports, though updates while he's in hospital have been infrequent out of respect for his family.

"Out of respect for family privacy there has not been an official Ric Flair update, which has led to false information," Flair's manager, Melinda Zanoni of Legacy Talent, said in a statement. "Don't believe everything you read.

"Happy to report Ric is awake, communicating and progressing, but there are complications so he needs rest for the first time in forty years.

"He did cut a promo on a nurse yesterday so anyone that knows him knows that's a very, very good sign."

She continued: "On behalf of Ric thank you for the outpouring of prayers and well-wishes (although the offers for a kidney seemed a little excessive). The man outlived a plane crash and being struck by lightning, he is a survivor. Grateful for all the love and respect sent his way."

It's great to see that he's on the road to recovery and feeling better - hopefully he'll be back to 100 percent fitness very soon.
