Reid Flair 1988 - 2013

By March 30, 2013

Follow me on:

I am sorry to report that Richard Reid Fliehr, better known to wrestling fans as Reid Flair, has passed away at the age of 25. Reid, who had wrestled in a few televised matches for WCW before he was a teenager, was the son of Ric Flair.

Yesterday, Reid was found deceased in his room at the Marriott Residence Inn in Charlotte, North Carolina. While an investigation into his death is taking place, TMZ.com is reporting that police do not suspect foul play was involved in his passing. It unfortunately has to be noted that back in 2009, Reid was arrested for heroin possession.

I'd like to take this opportunity to send out my condolences to his family, friends and fans.
