The Charlotte Observer has an article up looking at Reid Flair's last days after he got home from Japan. Reid's mother Beth Fleihr said that Reid feared returning home, as he was worried about falling into his old addiction habits due to the traps surrounding him in Charlotte. She noted, "His worst fear was coming up."

The article reveals that the hotel room in Charlotte where Reid was found on March 29th was the second bedroom of a suite rented by Ric. The WWE Hall of Famer and Reid were set to travel to Maryland that morning for an appearance for Big Time Wrestling.

Ric said in the article, "I can honestly say I blamed myself the first couple days, but after talking with people I think he's in a better place and he's at peace. Because this had gone on a long time - and something happened that we didn't have control over. But he's a wonderful guy. I was so proud of him."
