I've really been enjoying TNA as of late, their story lines are long and thought out, you can tell this stuff was all mapped out months even a year in advance with the Bully Ray & Aces & 8's angle.

Also, it's nice to see the tag teams & mid carders actually have story lines, not to mention the payoffs for these long feuds and angles have been excellent as of late

I just can't imagine what the Flair family is going through.. apparently Reid had some problem with heroin in the past & was busted for it in 09, I hate to speculate but when someone dies at such a young age & is also a well conditioned athlete all the red flags begin to go up.

He said in a shoot interview a few years back that if he dies without nobody knowing his name it wouldn't matter aslong as he had his fathers respect.

Hopefully Reid got that wish

It is man. Flair has been a horrible husband and father. Rarely around his kids cause the guy just won't leave the business and has divorced 4 wives already. Run-ins with the law, you name it.

The cause of death is probably drug overdose.

no shit sherlock. the vast majority of wrestlers found dead in a hotel room before 40 are because of drug overdoses....or heart attacks induced by drugs. that's just fact.

good pts made above. i'd add that ric's party attitude certainly didn't help. not that heroin is a 'party drug'...but still, i'm talking environment here. i think it was nash that said flair would walk into bars even recently and buy everyone a shot and party until like 6 AM

so really, it's no wonder he's short on cash which is sad given the career he's had. they were doing some recent events/signings....i wonder if ric noticed anything different or even knew if he was using at the time. some of them can hide it pretty well.

i hope flair saves up, makes amends with his history and retires. really, he's a legend but we don't need to see him in the ring anymore. that's just who he is i guess. one speed: GO! he doesn't operate in any other mode. he's balls to the wall in everything he does, whether it be arguing or partying.

it sucks for sure. as a wrestling fan, you almost have to get used to tragedy. somewhat expected deaths are one thing and this may have been one but it almost always seems to come out of left field. at this point, i'm expecting hall and roberts to live until 2230 just to fvck the system.

I was wondering do you or anyone else know what Ric Flair's cardio exercise routine was like in his prime in the 80s?

I heard he had one of the best cardio conditioning for a wrestler and would always do cardio in the morning even after staying up late, drinking, etc the night before.

This crowd is going to be ROUGH:

Quote:
It appears that the HOF crowd was really rough with Maria Menounos, Donald Trump and John Cena. Reports are that Maria almost started crying.

They even booed John Cena's make a wish video.

Quote:
By Marc Middleton on 04/07/2013

- Most everyone in attendance for last night's WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Madison Square Garden noted that the crowd was very rough at times. Donald Trump and Maria Menounos apparently received the biggest boos of the night. One fan noted that Maria looked like she was going to cry. She went long during her speech for Bob Backlund and was met with "WHAT?" chants.

When John Cena was shown on the big screen, the crowd booed him out of the building. WWE aired a Make-A-Wish video featuring Cena and even that got a very negative reaction from the crowd.

- There was a strong buzz around Bruno Sammartino backstage at the Hall of Fame last night. Many of the WWE stars were meeting Bruno for the first time ever.

- At best we can tell, WWE Champion The Rock was not in attendance for last night's ceremony but one fan noted they spotted his mother in the crowd. Dolph Ziggler tweeted the following before last night's ceremony about Rock:

"hey @TheRock marks would 90's rock sit back and 'know his role'?"
