WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair broke the news in a recent interview with The New York Post last week that his wife, Barbara Barlow, had tested positive for the COVID-19. “The Nature Boy” is declared at the time that “My wife does it [have the virus]we are living in a 5,000-square-foot home. I have been living in the basement. She lives up on the third floor, and she’s sick of it,” said that he still had not tested positive. In a new interview with Booker T, this week, Flair gave an update and said Barlow was much more comfortable.
“She’s doing great, much better than that,” Flair said it: ((h/t WrestlingNews.co). “Not 100%, but she does it a lot better. It’s been over three weeks now, and it was a nightmare. All of a sudden, it came back upon her, and, of course, you backtrack and figure out where it was coming from. She was really sick. I had to take her to the hospital twice for IV’s one more time, and then, just to make sure she was okay. You just never know. They brought her back after keeping her for a couple of hours. You can’t be too careful.”
In previous interviews, the Flair, has argued that at the WWE Performance Center, several times, in spite of the pandemic hit, many of the WWE staff and wrestlers.
“The WWE is doing it all, and each of the following is a guideline as possible,” he told Flair Wrestling Inc. the previous month. “The test, and all of this was done as professionally as it could have been. Three of the doctors. Will be organised. Yes, it was the people in the queue, but that was because of the number of people being tested. However, no one was. Everyone had a mask on.”
“I would have to examine a person who is told otherwise at the highest level,” he added. “I was tired of having to hear it from the rest of the bulls. Carrano, Ace, Vince and myself, I was able to go down through the list of people who have to make sure that everyone is in the best possible place to be, as they have to be there for the event.”
Flair is not even the focus of people’s PC’s to test positive, saying: “I went back the next day. Of course, I also want to see. I have a pre-existing condition, and I am in my 70’s! Let me tell you something, you are safer to go to a WWE event, then you are going to the Kroger’s grocery store.”
Flair was not present for this week’s Raw, where Randy Orton officially challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. He is joined in the episode by the detection of the champ with an RKO.
