People Editorial Guidelines Published on August 15, 2017 11:56 AM Share Tweet Pin Email WWE legend Ric Flair’s daughter has broken her silence following reports that her father was put in a medically induced coma and would undergo surgery. “On behalf of my family and I, we want to THANK everyone for the prayers, texts, calls and support. Our Dad is a FIGHTER and your continued thoughts and prayers MEAN THE WORLD to us,” Charlotte Flair, who is also a professional wrestler, captioned a photo on Instagram. “We will update everyone when we have more information.” A rep for WWE told TMZ on Monday that Flair – known in the wrestling world as Nature Boy – was surrounded by family and resting after an operation but would not reveal what type of procedure took place. Flair was hospitalized over the weekend and his management team asked for prayers as he battles the medical issues. Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC, took to Twitter on Saturday writing that that he was in the hospital for routine monitoring and there was no reason to panic. However, her most recent tweets signaled a tone change. “Are u a Fan/Friend of Ric Flair?” she wrote. “If so, we need prayers & positive energy 4 our Living Legend as he is dealing w/some tough medical issues.” Fellow wrestlers offered their prayers and support for Flair, including Jerry Lawler and John Cena. Wrote Cena, “Just hearing all this news about @RicFlairNatrBoy sending every ounce energy to #TheMan and asking that all of you do the same #NeverGiveUp.” Put your celeb and pop culture knowledge to the test and download PEOPLE and Zynga’s Crosswords with Friends!
