CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Authorities say the son of professional wrestler Ric Flair has been found dead in a North Carolina hotel room.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police says officers were called to a hotel on the city’s south side around 10:30 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found the body of 25-year-old Reid Fliehr, who also was a wrestler.
A statement from police says there are no signs of foul play, and that the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office.
Flair’s agent released a statement Friday describing Reid as “an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler.”
Ric Flair’s real name is Richard Morgan Flair. The peroxide-blond wrestled for some 40 years and also was known as The Nature Boy.
The 64-year-old won many pro wrestling titles including in the WWE.
