What Happened To Reid Flair: How Did His Career Progress Before Death?

The only thing we can count on for sure in this life is that it will eventually come to an end. Even if we accept that death is inevitable and try to make the most of our time here on this strange planet hurtling through space, losing a loved one is never easy, and it can be especially painful to outlive one of one’s own children. The legendary pro wrestler Ric Flair and his son, Reid, had a tragically similar experience.

What Happened To Reid Flair?

Richard Reid Fliehr, better known by his ring name, Reid Flair, began his professional wrestling career at a young age, following in his father’s footsteps. On June 12, 2000, in WCW (which the WWE eventually acquired), he wrestled and defeated Eric Bischoff. In addition, he wrestled alongside his dad in a tag team battle against David Flair and Vince Russo.

Reid competed in indie wrestling promotions like Big Time and Northeast Wrestling in addition to All Japan Pro Wrestling. Reid’s body was discovered on March 29, 2013, at a Residence Inn in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was only 25 years old when he passed suddenly. On June 14, 2013, a few months after Reid Flair’s death, the autopsy results were made public. His death was ruled a drug overdose by the coroner. These two tranquillizers were said to have played a role in his demise.

Ric Flair told a Heartbreaking Triple H Story after his Son Reid Died

The WWE Hall of Famer talked about his friendship with Paul Levesque, aka Hunter Hearst Helmsley, along with a sweet gesture following Reid’s passing.

I remember putting one of my Hall of Fame rings on Reid’s finger after we buried him. At NXT, Hunter once remarked, “I need to talk to you,” and I may have misunderstood his motives. And he invited me into his office where he showed me a replica of Reid’s ring bearing his name. This is a person who is concerned. The time I spent with the Horsemen was double what I spent with Hunter, Flair said.

Flair has gone on record as saying that he gets along great with the McMahons and that The Game (aka Triple H) is one of his closest friends within the family.

“Helping to see young guys get the opportunity to make the main roster, working with people on a daily basis,” Flair said. Moreover, he is one of my three closest pals. I recently ran across him at RAW and TLC and we had a pleasant conversation. Flair and Triple H had a big Evolution storyline that involved the two of them working side by side in the WWE, one that Ric paid homage to on social media in late 2020.

Ric Flair also posted a tweet about his son’s death:
