Ric Flair 'awake, communicating, progressing' after surgery

A few weeks after Ric Flair's "30 for 30" documentary aired, the WWE Hall of Famer is reportedly suing his former management company.

Ric Flair isn't out of the woods yet, but he has taken a turn for the better.

In a series of tweets posted by Legacy Talent CEO Melinda Morris Zanoni on Saturday, it was revealed the former wrestler is "awake, comminucating and progressing" after suffering from "multiple organ problems" and undergoing surgery last week.

Flair, 68, was admitted to the hospital for "routine monitoring" on Aug 12 but was later placed in a medical coma. The WWE personality had heart surgery on Tuesday and has reportedly been dealing with a number of medical issues, including an undisclosed infection.
