Flair just twitted

Ric Flair®
✔ ‎@RicFlairNatrBoy

Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were. Naitch WILL be back! 🙏

As PWInsider.com reported last night, Flair is ambulatory and is already walking with assistance. He is expected to undergo a surgery to put a permanent pacemaker in and will need to undergo physical therapy in the weeks to come. We send Ric our continued best wishes.

For those who have asked, PWInsider.com has confirmed that the Table for 3 episode featuring Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat and Sting, which was pulled from its planned airing on the WWE Network when Ric Flair's health issues became known earlier this month, is now slated to debut on the Network in mid-September.

On Jerry Lawler's latest podcast, he says that Ricky Steamboat visited Flair in the hospital shortly before his surgery and was told that Flair only had a 20% chance of surviving.

Steamboat's visit was before the initial surgery? Not the upcoming pacemaker surgery? So they're saying Flair beat the odds already.

Yes. He's not in critical condition anymore. I knew it was bad, but 20% was significantly worse than I imagined. I thought maybe 50-50.

This last episode may have used up the eighth one.

In People Magazine, Flair admitted that he was an alcoholic and vowed to never have another drink.  They also confirmed the story I posted a while ago where Steamboat said he was told Flair only had a 20% chance of surviving the surgery.

PEOPLE Exclusive – Wrestling Legend Ric Flair Fighting for His Life After Decades of Alcohol Abuse: Health Scare Tamed 'Nature Boy’

(NEW YORK) – Wrestling legend Ric Flair may have once commanded the ring – but after the cameras turned off, things “just got out of control.”

Decades of “social” drinking finally caught up with the 16-time pro wrestling world champion this year, landing him in the hospital and near death last month.

“I crashed in an airplane and broke my back, I’ve been hit by lightning,” Flair tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “But this is totally different. Anything I’ve been through before is nothing like this.”

On Aug. 11, the 68-year-old was rushed to the hospital with stomach pains. Within hours, Flair was in the early stages of kidney failure and on the verge of congestive heart failure – the result of years of alcohol abuse.

Flair’s family members were told he had only 20 percent odds of surviving, and he was placed in a medically induced coma while they – including daughter, pro wrestler Charlotte Flair –  took to social media to asks fans for prayers.

Doctors subsequently removed part of Flair’s bowel, and inserted a pacemaker. Now, in recovery at a convalescent center in Atlanta, Flair tells PEOPLE of the entire ordeal, “It scared the s— out of me.”

He adds, “But I’m not out of the woods yet.”

Now, the man once known as the “Nature Boy,” needs a nurse to help steady his shaking hands so he can sip water from a glass. He admits, “I didn’t think I was an alcoholic, but obviously I was.”

Flair’s problem with alcohol started while he worked to build a camaraderie with his fellow wrestlers during the early days of his career in 1972. It helped them “bond,” he says, noting though, “I never drank when I was working.”

“But as soon as work was over, I went right to the mill,” he says, adding that he’s long struggled to “do anything in moderation,” and admitting to a failed rehab stint four years prior.

Alcohol also served as a tonic of sorts when it came to coping with his injuries and intense physical pain from his job. “I’ve never taken a pain pill in my life,” he explains. “I’d just take a shower, flip my hair back and go to the best bar in town.”

Now, the father of four says he is dedicated to doing better.

“I’ll never drink again,” says Flair. “I never want to go through this again.”
