Earlier this week, Muscle & Fitness reported that WWE superstar and Hall of Famer Ric Flair had been suffering from “tough medical issues,” according to his management. Since then, both the WWE and Melinda Morris Zanoni (CEO of Legacy Talent, which represents Flair) have provided new updates.

WWE reported that Flair underwent successful surgery on Monday, and is now recovering from the procedure. Additionally, Flair’s daughter (and WWE superstar) Charlotte Flair took to Instagram to thank her fans for support and prayers:

She also made it clear that the illness Flair is battling is not heart-related, contrary to rumors. The full nature of Flair’s affliction has yet to be disclosed.

Flair, who is often called one of the WWE’s most talented superstars, made a name for himself in the ’80s, winning more than a dozen championships. Since then, Flair has continued to make appearances in the WWE, particularly in support of Charlotte.
