In other news regarding Ric Flair, the WWE Hall of Famer recently sat down with Nick Hausman, editor of Wrestling Inc to discuss the touching gift that Triple H gave to him after the passing of Flair’s son, Reid. Reid Flair tragically passed away on March 29, 2013 due to a drug overdose. He told Hausman the following quote.
“I’ve moved on. Trust me, I’ve had words with Hunter, and I’ve had words with Stephanie,” Ric said. “I’ve argued with them, and we’ve had tough times too. I was drinking a lot, and Steph and I had a bad argument. I said something terrible, but they’ve forgiven me and so has Hunter, and Vince has never left my side ever since the day I met him. And they couldn’t have done more for my son.
Flair continued: “I can remember after we buried Reid, I put one of my Hall of Fame rings on Reid. At NXT one time, Hunter said, ‘I need to talk to you,’ and I maybe thought I had done something wrong. And he called me into his office, and he had a duplicate ring with Reid’s name engraved on it. That’s someone who cares. I spent half the time with Hunter than I did with those guys (the Horsemen).” Ric Flair also revealed this past week if he dislikes Matt Riddle.
