Melinda Morris Zanoni, CEO of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, which represents Flair, tweeted that the procedure was not heart-related.
Neither the statement from WWE nor Zanoni gave any further details about the surgery. Flair was placed into a medically induced coma before the procedure, a WWE representative confirmed to ESPN earlier Monday.
Flair was hospitalized and admitted to an intensive care unit over the weekend. After initially downplaying the seriousness of the issue, Zanoni tweeted a plea for public support.
As first reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet, Flair was hospitalized Saturday morning, with Zanoni initially reporting the situation involved "routine monitoring." PW Insider's Mike Johnson reported that Flair is hospitalized near his home in Atlanta.
Flair, 68, has spent the past five decades in professional wrestling with a reputation as one of the most charismatic personalities in the history of that business. His popularity and personality have transcended into professional sports on many occasions, with athletes recreating some of his most famous wrestling promos and Flair often called on to serve as a motivational speaker.
