    Default BREAKING: Ric Flair's son has died.

    Reid Flair, the youngest son of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, has passed away, PWInsider.com has sadly confirmed. He was only 24 years old.
    Reid was seen in the latter days of WCW, where both he and his father had their shaved in an angle by Vince Russo. He later began training as a pro wrestler under Bobby Eaton and George South, but personal issues, including a heroin arrest, sidetracked what was expected to be instant stardom for Reid, who had an excellent amateur pedigree.


    At one point, he was slated to debut with Ring of Honor when the promotion was owned by Cary Silkin, but the arrest caused ROH to back off on those plans. That led to the beginning of the end of their relationship with Ric Flair.


    Since then, there had been talk of Reid going to WWE developmental and the company had taken a look at him, but didn't sign him to a contract. He had worked in All Japan this past January and was slated to make appearances with Ric this weekend in Maryland.


    Our deepest condolences to the Flair family during what can only be described as a tragic, sad day.

    Even in a thread about his death, Reid is still living under his father's shadow. RIP to Reid, it's always sad to see someone die at such a young age.

    This is horrible news. 24 is way to young for someone to die.

    He looked like his dad too, real good looking bastard he was. A bit of focus and hard work and he surely had a future.

    Wow....I'm truly speechless. I hate saying this but I would have thought that I would see a thread about Ric Flair dying way before I ever saw a thread about one of his kids passing away, especially given the latest episodes of blood clots.

    Losing a son that young is never right, no matter who it is.

    Sorry Bout Your Damn Luck

    24 years old. Never even had a chance to live a life.
    The IWC will never be happy unless Daniel Bryan wins both world titles, makes Batista tap out and makes HHH look like a total bitch in the process.
    Consider me a satisfied customer.

    What's majorly depressing me is that he was only a few months older than me. When you hear about this sort of thing it makes one seriously consider life and how it's being wasted.

    Boo-tista? How about Daniel Boo-ryan!

    Never ever thought Reid would go before Ric or even David....such a tragic loss and at age 24 too. Pretty shocking too and at that age again.

    Prayers for the family. Hopefully the WWE is taking care of Ric and Reid's sister, Ashley(Charlotte).

    Rest In Peace Reid.

    I thought he'd be making moves in the business in the coming years.

    Exclamation BREAKING NEWS: Reid Flair Passes Away

    http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/1...ir-passes-away

    Reid Flair, the son of Ric Flair, passed away at the age of 24. The cause of death at this time is not known.

    Reid has been training for years to be a professional wrestler, with Bobby Eaton and George South training him. He was going to debut on ROH TV when his father was working for the company, but ROH backed off of the plans due to the younger Flair being arrested for heroin possession. Reid had recently been working for All Japan, and WWE had taken a look at him. Word was that WWE was considering signing him for the developmental system.

    Sean Waltman tweeted the following regarding the passing of Reid:

    "So very sorry to Nature Boy Ric Flair & his family. No matter what differences we ever had, my heat hurts for him so bad right now."

    On behalf of all of us here on the website, we send our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Reid Flair. R.I.P.
    According to pwinsider.com, Reid Flair, the son of Ric Flair, passed away at the age of 24. The cause of death at this time is not known

    So sad. RIP Reid Flair.

    This, plus Ric Flair's health problems should be enough for WWE to close the door on working with Flair for a while. He needs to spend time with his family for now.

    I was just thinking this as well. I can't imagine what that is like for a parent.

    Man, when someone in their 30s or 40 passes away its way, way too young. 24 is just insane. RIP.

    Wow. When I saw Breaking, Ric, and Dead, I thought it was Ric. What a young age to go. Damn, this is freaking depressing.

    Does anyone know how he died?

    Terrible. I clicked on this thread thinking this was a typo and thought RIC had passed, not REID. You know, with Flair being in the hospital.
