Ric Flair’s son, Reid Flair’s passing was certainly one of the most tragic deaths in professional wrestling. Reid passed away in 2013 owing to a drug overdose. His death was mourned by everyone, especially his father.
The WWE Hall Of Famer spoke to Wrestling Inc, where he revealed the last thing he was told by his Son prior to his death. Here is what he said:
“I came back from Japan and I had a blood clot in my leg. They won’t let me leave the hospital but I said I have to leave as my son is only home for a couple of days. We were going on the road,” said Flair. “They released me to go to the doctor’s office and he put me on blood thinners.
“My son sends me a text, saying, ‘Dad what would this family be [without you]? You need to be here for all of us.’ And that night he died. I’ve never told anyone that story, except [my wife] Wendy.”
Reid Flair had a lot of potential, but he was taken from the world far too soon.
