ATLANTA (WTHR) — Former WWE superstar Ric Flair is out of surgery.

Doctors said that the procedure was a success, TMZ reported.

Flair was hospitalized on Thursday following a medical emergency.

Flair was in Atlanta when the 70-year-old was taken to the emergency room.

The former wrestler's wife said "ongoing medical complications" were the cause of Flair's hospitalization. His surgery was originally planned for Friday but was postponed due to medical complications.

Flair suffered a medical scare in 2017 when he was in an induced coma for 11 days after his intestine ruptured.
