Ric Flair has opened up about how the McMahon’s embraced him following his son Reid’s passing, revealing a gift that Triple H gave him.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time world champion was on ‘The Wrestling Inc. Daily‘ talking about his illustrious career and spoke about the on/off relationship he had with the McMahon family and how they’ve grown together.
I’ve moved on. Trust me, I’ve had words with Hunter, and I’ve had words with Stephanie. I’ve argued with them, and we’ve had tough times too. I was drinking a lot, and Steph and I had a bad argument.
I said something terrible, but they’ve forgiven me and so has Hunter, and Vince has never left my side ever since the day I met him. And they couldn’t have done more for my son.
In March of 2013, at the young age of 25, Reid Flair passed away from an apparent drug overdose in Charlotte, North Carolina. Ric Flair reveals the days following his funeral, a touching moment with Triple H where he received a gift he thought he’d never see – a replacement WWE Hall of Fame ring.
I can remember after we buried Reid, I put one of my Hall of Fame rings on Reid. At NXT one time, Hunter said, ‘I need to talk to you,’ and I maybe thought I had done something wrong.
And he called me into his office, and he had a duplicate ring with Reid’s name engraved on it. That’s someone who cares. I spent half the time with Hunter than I did with those guys (the Horsemen).
A beautiful gesture from Triple H and the WWE, Ric Flair being one of the Mount Rushmore faces of wrestling it shows the love and respect they have for each other.
