Son of WWE star Ric Flair dies at 25

Ric Flair never was one of my favorite wrestlers, but he was a consummate professional and my thoughts and prayers go out to the Flair family

************************************************** *******

Reid Flair, the 25-year-old son of WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, died Friday. Details surrounding his death are unknown at this time.

Flair's agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, released the following statement: "We are heartbroken to confirm that Ric's son, Reid, has passed away today March 29, 2013 in Charlotte, NC. The investigation into the cause of death is ongoing. Reid was an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler. No words can describe the grief that Ric and his family are experiencing and they do request privacy during this devastating time."

According to wcnc.com, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police received a call around 10:30 a.m. ET that a man was unresponsive in a hotel room. Police identified the man as Reid Flair. Foul play is not suspected at this time.

Reid Flair, born Richard Reid Fliehr, had been wrestling in Japan occasionally for the last year to improve his skills in the ring. He was in the U.S. and scheduled to tour with his father this weekend.

He was expected to be signed by WWE at some point in the future, as his father has recently rejoined the company.

Reaction by the pro wrestling community on Twitter was immediate:

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."
