WWE legend Ric Flair tweeted on Wednesday that he is glad to be home after being hospitalized in the Atlanta area for what remains a mystery to his fans.

“The Naitch Is Home!!!” Flair tweeted at about 12:45 p.m. “Thank You To All The Incredible Staff And Doctors At Gwinnett Medical Center Once Again!”

Flair thanked his family, friends and fans “For All The Love. At This Time In My Life, I Never Take It For Granted. I Will Be Back Up And WOOOOOing In No Time!”

Flair’s tweet included a photo of him smiling and flexing his right biceps.

Flair’s post received 21,000 likes on Twitter and 83,200 likes on Instagram in four hours.

Flair still has not divulged why he was in the hospital.

The former longtime Charlottean had a near-death experience in 2017 at age 68, when he was hospitalized in the Atlanta area and was put into a medically induced coma. Flair lives in the Gwinnett County town of Lawrenceville.

Flair was hospitalized May 16 with a “very serious” medical issue according to TMZ Sports.

On Monday, he canceled his guest of honor roast appearance at Friday’s Starrcast II in Las Vegas,according to Wrestling Observer and TMZ. A poster promoting Flair’s appearance was removed from the Starrcast II website this week.

Sean Ross Sapp, managing editor of Fightful.com, however, quoted Flair’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson saying the “situation is not as grave or serious as TMZ makes it out,” The Charlotte Observer previously reported.
