It’s been a pretty gnarly month for Ric Flair. In mid-August, the two-time WWE Hall Of Famer was admitted to the ICU of a local hospital, initially for “routine monitoring,” before being put into a medically induced coma, then having surgery on his colon. His condition was touch-and-go for a little bit, but the Nature Boy himself took to Twitter last week to remind everyone that he “ain’t dead yet, mother f*ckers.”
You’d think after a major health scare such as that, Flair would take some quiet time to reflect on life, his family and all that Tuesdays With Morrie-type stuff. Nope!
Just a few days after putting the grim reaper in the Figure Four Leg Lock, Flair announced via Twitter that he had fired his manager, Melinda Morris Zanoni, who had represented him since at least 2012, and whose company, Legacy Talent And Entertainment, also handles the likes of Mick Foley, NASCAR’s Rusty Wallace, the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore and other celebrities.
