Ric Flair

As Ric Flair continues to recover following his Aug. 12 hospitalization and subsequent surgery, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer took a moment to thank each and every one of his fans via Instagram.

“Hey, to all my fans out there,” Flair exclaimed, “let it be known worldwide that The Nature Boy is back up and running!”

His overall message was one of heartfelt appreciation as he went on to say, “I want to tell all my fans out there, thank you for all the love and support and I will see you in the very near future!”

Several days ago, Flair’s fiancée, Wendy Barlow, provided an update on her Facebook page regarding the two-time WWE Hall of Famer’s condition.

“He is doing very well for a man who has been through so much,” she wrote. “He will begin physical therapy shortly and will be stronger than ever and back out enjoying all the fans sooner than you would think.”

An update from Flair’s official Twitter account that morning was equally optimistic.

“Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were,” the tweet stated. “Naitch WILL be back!”
