Ric Flair son dies: Reid Flair found dead in hotel room

The son of former wrestling superstar Ric Flair has died Friday. Authorities said Reid Flair, 25, was found dead in a North Carolina hotel room.

Flair’s agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, has confirmed Reid’s death.

“We are heartbroken to confirm that Ric’s son, Reid, has passed away today March 29, 2013 in Charlotte, NC. The investigation into the cause of death is ongoing. Reid was an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler. No words can describe the grief that Ric and his family are experiencing and they do request privacy during this devastating time,” Zanoni said in a statement.

Police told media that foul play is not suspected at this time and that the cause of death is yet to be determined.



The young wrestler reportedly signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment in late 2007.

Before he died from unknown causes, Reid had been wrestling in Japan occasionally for skills improvement.

Reid was supposed to join his father, a WWE Hall of Famer, in a promotional tour this weekend.
