However, Conrad Thompson, who is the promoter and organizer for the upcoming Starrcast II event in Las Vegas on the weekend of May 24, says that this was hospital visit was for a planned surgery, and he is doing just fine.
Flair is scheduled to appear at the event.
Below, you can hear Thompson’s comments regarding the situation:

Here is a brief excerpt of the conversation:
“This was not a last minute surprise for the family,” Thompson said. “He was going to be having a procedure done today. I don’t think it’s nearly as grave or serious as TMZ would have us believe because Ric’s in good spirits about it and knew is was happening. He could choose to have it now or after Vegas. [Flair] decided to have it done now because he thought he’d be feeling good and wanted to get this behind him beforehand.”
This is good news; I would hate to not see this anymore:

Sometimes we get some information wrong. The most important thing is that The Nature Boy is fine and he can continue being the legend that he is! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
