TNA Wrestling News:
We have some additional details about Reid Flair’s untimely passing. He was found this morning in Charlotte, North Carolina after just getting back from working for All Japan.
Ric Flair has canceled all of this weekend’s appearances for Big Time Wrestling. Both Ric and Reid were set to appear at the shows in Hagerstown, Maryland and Saturday’s event in Altoona, Pennsylvania.
Ric is also set to appear at Thursday’s WWE Fan AXXESS event, as well as next Friday’s BTW event in New York. However, at this point it seems unlikely that he will make those shows.
On behalf of all of us here on the website, we send our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Reid Flair. R.I.P.
