Wrestling legend Ric Flair tweeted a message to his fans on Tuesday as he continues to recover from surgery and a series of health problems that landed him in the hospital in critical condition earlier in August.

“Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were.” Flair tweeted. “Naitch WILL be back!”

The 68-year-old “Nature Boy” or “Naich,” as he referred to himself in his tweet, was reportedly admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pain and had to have a portion of his bowel removed, per the Charlotte Observer.

Flair’s fiancé Wendy Barlow had also reported that Flair’s illness led to multiple organ problems.

Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer said Flair also had an external pacemaker put in to help his heart beat normally and was on dialysis for kidney issues.
