Ric FlairAs we reported moments ago, Ric Flair had to be taken to the hospital earlier this evening and will not be on Raw tonight as originally planned.

According to PWInsider.com, Flair was sent to the hospital for complications stemming from a blood clot in his leg, which is the same reason why he didn't wrestle for All Japan back in January.

WWE doctors took a look at Flair's leg this afternoon and made the decision to pull him off the show and send him to the hospital where he was further examined and advised to return home to Charlotte for further evaluation.

Original Raw plans for tonight saw Ric Flair involved in a segment with Bret Hart to discuss the upcoming Rock vs Cena match at WrestleMania. We reported earlier that the Raw plan might now involve Mick Foley, Dusty Rhodes and Jerry Lawler along with Hart.
