The professional wrestler was discharged from Gwinnett Medical Center Tuesday after a weeklong stay for a medical procedure. TMZ snapped a photo of him as he was leaving the facility in a wheelchair.

He later took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support. 

“The Naitch Is Home!!! Thank You To All The Incredible Staff And Doctors At Gwinnett Medical Center Once Again!” he wrote. “I Am So Thankful For All My 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!”

Last Thursday, the two-time WWE hall of famer was hospitalized for an undisclosed medical procedure, which was postponed to Monday to address some complications.  

Flair’s wife, Wendy Barlow, told TMZ that she expected her husband to “fully recover.”
