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.
