It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Ric Flair, his family, his friends and his fans. Flair was admitted to the ICU last month for what was called “routine monitoring” but it quickly became apparent that The Nature Boy was dealing with some serious health issues.

Flair was put into a medically induced coma and he underwent surgery, and following the surgery he was in critical condition. Luckily Flair has recovered, but he’s still got a ways to go until he’s back to one hundred percent.

The 16 time World Champion has admitted that alcohol played a big role in his health issues, and he’s vowed that he will never drink again. Fans of Flair know that he has an over the top personality, and it sounds like he had an over the top drinking habit as well.

The two time WWE Hall of Famer recently appeared on the Dan Le Betard Show, and he admitted that he was taking in an insane amount of alcohol every day.

“I guess it would be like, if you’re ready for this, because I’ve done all the math and figured it out, between 3,700 and 4,000 calories worth of booze, soda, a splash of cranberry in my body every day. Like 20 drinks a day.”

Ric Flair also added that he never drank while on the job, and even when he would wrestle two matches a day he wouldn’t even drink so much as a drop of alcohol in between.

Luckily it sounds like Flair is making a change for the better, and we wish him well with his recovery from his recent health issues.
