Our best wishes are with him.

Wrestling icon Ric Flair will require surgery after being placed in a medically induced coma, a WWE representative told TMZ Sports. 

The 68-year-old was taken to the hospital on Saturday, but his condition has reportedly worsened over the weekend. Legacy Talent CEO Melinda Morris Zanoni initially tweeted that he is going through "tough medical issues."

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Flair was admitted due to a heart-related issue that was initially called "routine monitoring," but the situation has gotten more serious.

The Nature Boy has been in professional wrestling since the 1970s and is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer. After a glittering career in WWE and WCW, he retired in December 2012.

Aside from this,  he has been a world heavyweight champion 16 times in his extended career and is the subject of a new documentary that's being released soon.

Since the news of his ill-health was made public, plenty of wrestling fans have sent him their best wishes.
