25 years old.  In a hotel room.  How much you want to bet drugs were involved.

Watch it become a steroid death by the media.

Unfortunate either way, but I agree with you.

Condolences to the Fliehr family.

RIP.  Reid bought some workout equipt from the company I used to work for.  Ric called and paid for it all.  The store manager said Reid was coked up when he was in the store.....or at least heavily impaired.  So sad.

I hate this so bad.  I was really hoping he would get it together.  I always thought he might make a good wrestler one day, although I am not sure how he would have fit in today's business.

I really hope this doesn't do Ric in as well.

I don't live near Charlotte.  Have they said it it was an overdose, or what happened yet?

Not sure. We may have to wait for toxicology to come back, and that usually takes a while.

Man, when he came out in the Bischoff (I think) segment on Nitro, I thought my prayers for another Flair might be answered.  Even at that age, he seemed so comfortable in front of the camera and seemed to have a little flair, unlike poor David.

I met David at Flair's gym in Charlotte.  He was very nice, but he obviously got his wrestling genes from his mother, not his father.  Having said that, I always thought he did  a decent job with what he was given to work with.  Last I heard, he was trying to be a trooper?

I don't think Flair has been doing good health wise. This will certainly not help.

Have you heard something to make you think that.  I know he doesn't look good, and of course, there is all the stories.

Really?  Where did you read that?

I didn't watch last night.  Does anyone know if there was any mention of it on RAW?

On tmz, They reported that rick made the 911 call. Other people are saying its not his  voice

I didn't see the beginning... so perhaps it was during the opening. I didn't see anything from 10-11:07 when I flipped over.

Some sites are claiming confirmation that it was Ric who found him and made the call.
TMZ posted the 911 call on their site, which I've always considered a very tasteless thing to do.
