As many of you know, 16-time world champion Ric Flair has been in the hospital. Early today, it was reported that Flair was admitted to ICU and put into a medically induced coma prior to surgery. He was reported to be out of surgery just a few hours ago, with very little information.

Now, WWE has reported an update of their own. This is the exact statement made by Michael Cole during Monday Night Raw:

"Welcome back to Monday Night Raw, ladies and gentleman, and as many of you are aware, WWE Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair has battled a number of health issues over the past couple of days. But, we *can* report tonight that Ric underwent successful surgery earlier today. However, he is not out of the words yet and our thoughts and prayers are going out to Ric and his family in Atlanta tonight."

Both of Cole's co-announcers, Corey Graves and Booker T, passed on their well wishes to the Nature Boy.

Earlier today, TMZ's report on Ric Flair said that he was out of surgery after being put into a medically induced coma.

While we still are unsure what caused the legendary Nature Boy to require the procedure -- or the coma that proceeded it -- Flair has been in the hospital since Saturday for what ProWrestlingSheet's Ryan Satin has described at "heart-related issues."

TMZ now reports that Flair is out of surgery and that, "his family is there by his side" and they're waiting to meet with doctors.
