– Jim Ross posted his latest blog, and mentioned that he spoke with Ric Flair this morning.
“Got a nice call this morning from @RicFlairNatrBoy who was in great spirits and talking about how proud he was of his son Reid who is in Japan wrestling for All Japan Pro Wrestling and is apparently learning a great deal and doing well,” Ross wrote. “I’d suggest Reid stay in Japan for a year or longer and really refine his game before attempting to make his mark in the USA. Tough last name to have and even tougher to step away from the shadow of one of the most influential and famous fathers in the history of the business. I’m looking forward to catching up with ‘Naitch’ in a social setting during WrestleMania week.”
Ross also discussed this weekend’s UFC 158 card, JBL’s latest mountain trip and more, you can read the full blog at this link.
