Original: 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. Reid was found passed away this morning in Charlotte, North Carolina; he had just returned from working for All Japan.
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.
On behalf of 411, our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Reid Flair…
