Young Flair Set For Charlotte Debut!
Those waiting for Reid Flair’s first official pro wrestling match will have to wait a couple more weeks.
The 20-year-old son of 16-time world champion "Nature Boy" Ric Flair was forced to pull out of what had been billed as his pro wrestling debut due to "health issues." The bout had been scheduled Nov. 22 on a PCW (Pro Championship Wrestling) show in Oak Lawn, Ill.
"He had a real bad gum infection," said Ric Flair. "He had to sit out for a week, and we weren’t sure whether or not he was going to have to have surgery because he had a bone exposed. I had to take him off the show in Chicago. But they treated it and it’s fine now."
The young Flair will have his first match in Charlotte on Dec. 6. He and older brother David, managed by their father, will meet The Nasty Boys (Jerry Saggs and Brian Knobbs), managed by Jimmy Hart. Flair said he handpicked the opponents.
"I love Jerry and Brian. They’re awesome. And Brian is so entertaining."
Reid Flair, an amateur standout who has spent the past year training with his dad and George South in Charlotte, moved to Eldon, Mo., last week to begin three months of training under the legendary Harley Race. Flair will join another second-generation product, Ricky Steamboat Jr., at Race’s wrestling academy. Steamboat, who also trained this past year with his father, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, and South, is scheduled to leave the camp after the first of the year to train in Pro Wrestling NOAH’s dojo in Japan.
Other second- and third-generation wrestlers who have trained or are currently training under Race are Mike DiBiase and Ted DiBiase Jr. (sons of "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and grandsons of the late Mike DiBiase ), and Joe and Amy Hennig (son and daughter of the late Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig and grandson and granddaughter of Larry "The Axe" Hennig).
