Ric Flair 911 Call: Listen To Famous Wrestler Report Son’s Death

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 04/01/13 08:56PM EDT

Our hearts and prayers go out to famous wrestler Ric Flair who lost his son, Reid Flair, over the weekend. According to various reports, Reid Flair was unresponsive when found in his Charlotte, North Carolina hotel room.

On Monday afternoon, TMZ got their hands on the 911 call which features Ric Flair frantically telling the operator that his 25-year-old son is "out cold."

"He's out cold! He's out cold and he's purple!" Flair can be heard saying on the recording.

Currently nobody is saying what the cause of Reid Flair's death is, but that is not stopping anyone from assuming it had to do with substance abuse.

We would never wish death on anyone, and we are sure that Ric Flair did not want to see his son die. However, we must point out that The Nature Boy was never the best father in the world. As a professional wrestler, Flair was rarely home to be a father. Professional wrestler's live on the road and travel nearly every minute of every waking hour. If Ric Flair would have been around a little more when his son, Reid, was a child, maybe he would have never had issues with substance abuse.

Regardless of how Ric Flair was as a father, Reid was old enough to make his own decisions. Nobody should have to bury their 25-year-old son and unfortunately that is what Ric Flair will ultimately have to do. By the tone of his voice in the 911 call, we can tell that Ric Flair truly loved his son and did not want to see him die.

Hopefully other famous wrestlers with kids will learn from Ric Flair and his son Reid. Even though the wrestling business comes with a lot of money and a lot of fame, being a father should always come first. Every father needs to take time off from work and spend some time with their kids, regardless of how old their kids are.
