Some sad news out of North Carolina today, as Reid Fliehr (stage name Flair), son of wrestling legend Ric Flair, died today at age 25.
Flair's agent 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."
The cause of death is unknown at this time, though the younger Flair had struggled with heroin in the past.
Reid was scheduled to tour with his father after having wrestled in Japan over the last year to improve his skills.
It was expected for Reid to join WWE, which his father had recently rejoined, some time in the near future.
