After being originally told not to panic, Ric Flair's health has the wrestling community on high alert.
Citing heart issues, Flair was admitted to an Intensive Care Unit this Saturday. His manager Melinda Morris Zanoni, downplayed the hospital visit but has considerably changed her tone as of this morning. She tweeted the following:
"Are u a Fan/Friend of Ric Flair? If so, we need prayers & positive energy 4 our Living Legend as he is dealing w/some tough medical issues."
Well, the wrestling world has responded. On top of countless thoughtful tweets from fans, former and current WWE Superstars sent their love to the Nature Boy:
