    It would be TMZ. Always releasing personal stuff i don’t think Flair would have wanted that released.

    no surprise there, drugs are almost always involved when a pro wrestler goes.

    I don’t think that was Ric Flairs voice. Any chance it could have been David’s? Anyways, TMZ should not have posted that. I get its public record in a way but have some respect for the families privacy.

      i agree it didn’t sound like Ric. But regardless this is a tragedy. RIP Reid. I cant imagine the pain Ric and the rest of the Fliehrs are feeling.

        No question about it. No parent should ever have to bury their child.

    Jesus could you imagine Ric Flair having to witness that? Makes me sick thinking about it. RIP and prayers to him and his entire family.

    We found one of our best friends like that. The image is fried in my head for life. I couldn’t imagine having it be my own son. Terrible.

    Out of respect for Flair I’m not even going to give TMZ.com the web traffic, not that I feel any need to hear a man desperate for his sons life. Seriously, as long as people still consume that trash, they’re gonna keep posting it. Have some damn respect and let private things like this stay private, this family is going through enough pain as it is without having to deal with TMZ.com’s bullshit as well.

    The call centre is a bunch of retards. It’s like they didn’t even care and were so slow

      They did sound very laid back about the whole thing

    He ODed on heroin. Can I be a medical examiner now. This isn’t too hard to figure out.

    Sad sad stuff, but not surprising if drug related.

    I really hope Ric is doing alright. Whether drugs were involved or not, Flair now has to bury his son, and I can’t begin to imagine what that’s like.
