2017 Summer TCA Tour - Day 2

To fans, Ric Flair’s sudden health problems were shocking, to say the least. But to the people that were closest to him, it wasn’t shocking at all.

After a brush with death over a month ago that had him in a medically induced coma with his organs failing rapidly, the WCW/WWE legend is now speaking out about his past.While doing so, he revealed just how much he abused alcohol in his past, which ultimately led to his situation right now.

On Thursday’s edition of the ‘Dan Le Batard Show,’ Flair opened up about his severe drinking problems which nearly cost him his life.

“I just drank too much,” Flair said. “Between 3,700 and 4,000 calories worth of booze … in my body every day. Like 20 drinks a day.”

The legendary wrestler still has a long way to go before he’s completely healthy. This may have been the event that forces him change his lifestyle. Hopefully it’s not too late.
