Ric Flair Talks About NBC Firing Matt Lauer, Being Hospitalized & More

WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair recently appeared as a guest on "The School Of Morton" podcast hosted by WWE Hall Of Famer Ricky Morton. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On being hospitalized earlier this year: "I got a really sharp pain in my stomach. I knew the pain. That was very similar to the pain I had the last time. Wendy took me to the hospital and my intestine had broken open and that's the last thing I remember. I don't remember anything else. On Monday they put me in an induced coma. I stayed in that and on life support for 11 days. I don't remember any of it. I just dreamt... I had to learn how to walk again. I couldn't walk. I couldn't do anything. I couldn't twist the top off a Gatorade bottle or open a diet coke I lost forty-three pounds."

On Matt Lauer getting fired by NBC: "$25 million a year salary. Are you kidding me. Who could blow that deal?"

On his advice for living life: "For me I would say make the most of every day. When you come close to losing that opportunity it makes you realize all the more how lucky you are to have that opportunity. So make the most of every day."
