A good bet for 2018, greatest wrestler of all time imo.

Bowel obstruction which led to multiple organ failure but specifically kidney failure. He was expected to die, but hung in there, operated on, and can make public appearances again, but looks a lot frailer. Doctors say one more drink could kill him.

 

PS He's an alcoholic, always has been, but when his son died in 2013, he jumped right off the wagon in spectacular fashion. Also bipolar and self-medicates with booze.

 

Wont die tomorrow, but 70 (February 25th 2019) is going to be a standing ovation achievement imo.

Giving a tribute to the late Burt Reynolds on BBC News just now.

 

Sounds on his way back from a heavy drinking session or on his way to a stroke.

 

Gawd love him.....:wub:

Willz called it:

 

Quote

Ric Flair on how he has still drank alcohol after his recent health scare: “I’m gonna be completely honest with you. I’ve asked the doctor ten different times and of course I’ll ask other doctors because I refuse to believe – at my wedding I had three glasses of champagne. At my daughter’s wedding I had the same or maybe one glass of wine with the champagne and while I was in Florida with Wendy, this past week, we were there for Thanksgiving, I drank about four beers, so it’s not the alcohol that’s gonna hurt me. It’s that the doctors are afraid that if I have one, that will lead to another, but I have had a drink, so alcohol is not gonna kill me. I’ve never had any hard liquor and that won’t happen, but I have had probably ten or twelve beverages with alcohol in them; beer, wine, or champagne.”

 

A reminder on Flair and boozing...

 

 

imo he's on the clock but its a harder one to get quite right because it's not cancer. He'll likely see 70 after all (it's only 84 days away) but pretty sure he'll be gone before the next World Cup easily.

 I'd be shocked if Ric Flair saw 70 and he's 7 months off proving me wrong, so who knows.

He's 68 now, coming rapidly close to my "he wont see 70" line.

 

 

So given I have been adamant for years he'd never see the day, somehow yesterday Ric Flair proved me wrong and turned 70.  Well done him.

 

Still think he's in injury time.

Could be one surgery to many. I've heard as you get older surgery puts huge stress on the body .

Actually, I should’ve looked at that twitter account, and it turns out it’s a fake account. My bad!

No surgery for Ric, because of complications. Well, no surgery today.
