Iconic WWE superstar Ric Flair was hospitalized yesterday in Atlanta due to a medical emergency. Initial reports said the situation was "serious."

Thankfully, the latest update on the Nature Boy is a positive one. Last night, TMZ Sports published an encouraging statement from Flair's wife Wendy Barlow.

In it, she said her husband is expected to make a full recovery after he undergoes a surgical procedure today.

"Due to ongoing health complications, Ric was taken to the hospital and is expected to undergo a procedure tomorrow morning, after which he expects to fully recover," the statement reads.

A WWE Hall of Famer, Flair, 70, has dealt with some health issues in recent years, but it's good to hear that this situation isn't as serious as was first suspected.

Here's to hoping he recovers quickly and is back to his normal self.
