Ric Flair has opened up on his closeness with Triple H and the McMahon family, revealing the touching gift he was given following the death of his son, Reid.
Reid Flair passed away on 29 March 2013 at just 25-years-old, and Ric - a two-time WWE Hall Of Famer - put one of his Hall Of Fame rings on his son to be buried in.
Former Evolution stable-mate Triple H knew of this and Flair has shared that the WWE Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development had a new ring made for him, complete with Reid's name on it.
“I’ve moved on. Trust me, I’ve had words with Hunter, and I’ve had words with Stephanie,” Ric told Wrestling Inc. “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.
"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).”
