EB: It is just classic Ric Flair. The man is… he’s a myth. He is a living myth. He is a living legend. He is one of a kind. It’s really interesting, when Ric first went into the hospital and things were kind of touch and go early on Lorre (Eric’s wife) and I talked about it and she said, “Eric, you know him, if there is anybody in the world who is capable of kicking out of this it’s Ric Flair. He’s just going to be around forever.” I kind of chuckled to myself a little bit and said, “Yeah, you’re absolutely right.” Then it was about a week ago Ric’s fiancee Wendy gave me a call and she told me that Ric was up and around and he was giving everybody a hard time, wanting everyone to give him his phone, wanting to leave and just being Ric. It’s hard to keep him down. He’s lived a very active lifestyle for a long time. She said that the biggest challenge they have right now is just keeping Ric calm, keeping him in that recovery mode and letting him get 100% healthy. According to Wendy he just made a miraculous recovery and the doctors are probably more amazed than the people that know him and know what he’s capable of. It’s all looking good and I was happy to see him stepping into character and having some fun. That did my heart good.
