ATLANTA - Wrestling legend Ric Flair turns 71 on Tuesday.
It's a special one after a health scare had the Nature Boy hospitalized in Gwinnett County a little more than nine months ago. He ultimately underwent surgery for continued health problems.
Flair, whose real name is Richard Morgan Fliehr, opened up to FOX 5 Atlanta a few years ago about his on-going health battles from years of drinking and his time in the ring.
The 71-year-old professional wrestler, now a resident of metro Atlanta, married his long-time sweetheart Wendy Barlow in 2018.
