Ric Flair and Mongo McMichael were friends during Mongo’s time in WCW and beyond, but sadly, he is suffering from ALS now. His brain is still going, and his family is looking to gather some money with a fundraiser, but Ric Flair won’t be able to make it.

The Nature Boy’s schedule is always quite busy, and it’s natural to think that he is in demand. He had time blocked off to be at a fundraiser for Mongo, but something apparently came up.

Ric Flair got on X to let fans know that he won’t be able to make the fundraiser for Mongo McMichael. It’s unclear what came up, but Ric Flair seemed very sorry about missing the event.

For Unforeseen Reasons, I Will Not Be Able To Attend Mongo’s Fundraiser Tomorrow Night. I’m Very Sorry And Apologetic! I Had Every Intention Of Being There, But Some Things Are Just Out Of My Control. Please Have A Wonderful Evening And Continue To Support This Extremely Important Cause! Go Team Mongo! WOOOOO!


We’ll have to see if Ric Flair is able to make any future fundraiser that McMichael might be having. If anything, he is certainly sending his best to his old friend.

Ric Flair didn’t give any indication that something is wrong, so we certainly hope that isn’t the case as well. For more on this story, and so many more, stay tuned with us here at Ringside News.
