BIG NAME PULLED FROM RAW DUE TO HEALTH SCARE

Ric Flair will not be appearing on Raw tonight as he was sent to the hospital due to concern over what we are told is a "blood clot."

Flair did not wrestle as scheduled on a January All Japan show due to a blood clot in his leg. Whether this would be the same clot or not, I cannot confirm but I know that during a recent shoot interview, Flair actually showed off a clot, described to me as looking like an "awful piece of scar tissue."

We are told that WWE medical took a look at Flair's leg this afternoon as he wasn't looking healthy and immediately made the decision to pull from from the show and have him looked over at a local hospital in Philly. After being examined in Philadelphia, Flair was advised to return home to Charlotte for further medical treatment.

One person who saw Flair over the weekend noted that he was not looking well at all and was limping badly.

As we noted earlier, Flair was scheduled for a legends segment alongside Bret Hart, Jerry Lawler and other WWE legends that would involve the legends talking with Wrestlemania main events John Cena and The Rock. It was a non-physical role.

As previously noted in the Elite section of PWInsider.com, WWE officials had been concerned about Flair's well being of late, to the point that he was instructed not to do anything physical going forward in appearances.
