Hundreds attend Reid Flair’s funeral in Charlotte

Hundreds of friends, family, and wrestlers attended the 90-minute Reid Flair funeral today at the Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the funeral featured words of remembrance by his sister, girlfriend, and two-time Hall of Fame father.

“I want to make sure he knows this turnout isn’t because of me, it’s because of who he was him and who he affected,” said a subdued and visibly shaken Flair in a more than 10-minute speech about his son.

During the funeral service an 17-minute video slideshow was played showing Reid throughout the years on vacation, wrestling, and with his family.

Several hours ago, TNA President Dixie Carter wrote on Twitter that she was in Charlotte for Reid’s funeral. “Just landed in Charlotte. Headed to Reid Flair’s funeral. Please keep @RicFlairNatrBoy in your thoughts and prayers today.” Flair worked for TNA for a couple of years before departing the company.

“Thoughts and prayers are with Ric and his family,” wrote Hogan, who was not at the service.

It is not known if any from WWE attended the funeral due to the busy WrestleMania schedule but it’s a safe bet that there were some representatives from the company for sure.
