Ric Flair set to begin physical therapy soon


The latest updates on Ric Flair's condition following the health issues that he's been battling continue to be positive.

WWE posted an update on Flair's status today, with it noting that he is recovering and set to begin physical therapy shortly. That came after Wendy Barlow, Flair's fiancee and formerly Fifi the Maid as an on-screen character in WCW, announced the news on Facebook.

She wrote: "I wanted to update everyone on Ric's progress as So many people have been reaching out and offering their Prayers and Support. He is doing very well for a Man who has been through so much! He will begin Physical Therapy shortly and will be stronger than ever and back out enjoying all the fans sooner than you would think. I can Honestly say I have witnessed a Miracle."

A message from Flair's social media accounts was also sent out this morning. It said: "Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were. The Nature Boy will be back better than ever. Keep up the well wishes!"

Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez discussed Flair's status on last night's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer said that Flair is out of bed and doing better, but he has a ways to go despite being "out of the water" and his condition improving.

Charlotte Flair will return to WWE television tonight for the first time since her father was hospitalized on August 12th. She worked the SmackDown house show tour over the weekend as well.
