    Ric Flair has got married

    The wrestling legend tied the knot with fiancee Wendy Barlow on Wednesday (12.09.18) in a low-key ceremony at a resort in North Florida


    According to TMZ, fellow WWE icon The Undertaker was among the guests, while RAW star Dolph Ziggler walked Wendy down the aisle.

    The 69-year-old wrestler donned a custom suit for the occasion and came in for the ceremony to the sound of Offset and Metro Boomin's track 'Ric Flair Drip'.

    Ahead of the ceremony, Ric had posted his excitement on Twitter.

    He wrote: "It's Going To Be A Wonderful WOOOOO Wednesday!(sic)"

    Wendy - who was previously known to wrestling fans as Fifi the French Maid - is Ric's fifth wife and the couple have been together for six years.

    The wedding comes a year after Ric was placed into an induced coma for 11 days after being rushed to hospital with stomach pains that were later diagnosed as the early stages of kidney failure and congestive heart failure due to years of alcohol abuse and he later praised Wendy for her support during his medical ordeal.

    He said: "Wendy stayed with me in the ICU every day. She got what's called ... seriously, ICU psychosis, and she never left my room for 11 days."

    Ric also claimed he "couldn't walk" after he was brought out of his coma, and was sent to a physical rehabilitation centre where he had to learn the basic function.

    He added: "And then when I got released from the hospital they checked me into place, because 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 43 lbs. So they put me into a physical rehab, not an alcohol rehab. I'd already done that gig, and that really worked."
