Pro Wrestling World Tweets Reaction To Reid Flair

Sunday 31st, March 2013 / 13:03 Written by

The pro wrestling world is reeling with the news that Reid Flair has died. The 25-year old son of the legendary Ric Flair was found dead last week and the wrestling world has come out on Twitter to share thoughts, emotions, and support for the Flair family.

I can’t imagine the horror of a father having to bury his son and what Ric Flair is going through right now. Ric was very close with Reid, evident by the way he would always glow talking about his son in interviews. Ric reportedly discovered Reid’s body and found himself in the middle of every parent’s nightmare.

Reid has been a fixture in pro wrestling ever since he was a child. Ric took his son to shows and even got his son involved in a few angles. That is why it was no surprise when the wrestling world came out on Twitter to share their condolences and memories of Reid. Here are just some of what the legends and superstars shared through tweets.

Jim Ross: Words cannot express our emotions re: death today of Reid Flair the 24 year old son of Ric Flair. Condolences to the Flair family. So sad. -
