The Nature Boy was hospitalized Thursday morning in Atlanta for an undisclosed medical emergency, though reports conflicted over the seriousness of his condition.

Flair's wife told Fox News in a statement Thursday that Flair was expected to undergo the procedure last week and expects a full recovery.

Flair was hospitalized and underwent surgery in August 2017, though no further details were provided on what plagued him. He was given a 20 percent chance at survival at the time and beat the odds in a big way.
