Flair Brothers Appearing At Lucha Libre USA Charlotte Event
(Charlotte, NC) – David and Reid Flair, sons of the “Nature Boy,” Ric Flair, will be appearing at the Lucha Libre USA Masked Warriors extravaganza in Charlotte, North Carolina on August 28th. Reid will be managed by big brother, David, in a “Sons of Legends” tag-team match at Charlotte’s Bojangles Coliseum when he squares off against Tinieblas Jr, son of the famous Mexican luchador, Tinieblas.
“It’s an honor to make my national television pro wrestling debut on Lucha Libre USA Masked Warriors,” stated the six-foot three-inch Reid Flair. “Lucha Libre is all about tradition and heritage. Pro wrestling has meant the same in the Flair family my entire life.”
“For weeks I’ve heard about how Tinieblas Jr. believes his father is the most legendary and respected luchador/pro wrestler in the history of our business. David and I take great exception to that. I look forward to facing Tinieblas Jr. on the 28th and we’ll find out then, who the better second generation wrestler is. I can tell you one thing; our hometown of Charlotte will definitely be on our side; Oriental and Tinieblas Jr. better be ready for that. ”

The Allyns along with David and Reid Flair were in attendance when Gordon Solie and Ric Flair were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, Class of 2008.
