Authorities say the son of professional wrestler Ric Flair has been found dead in a North Carolina hotel room.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police says officers were called to a hotel on the city's south side around 10:30 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they found the body of 25-year-old Reid Fliehr, who also was a wrestler. 

A statement from police says there are no signs of foul play, and that the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner's office. 

Flair's agent released a statement Friday describing Reid as "an incredible son, brother, friend, and professional wrestler." 

Ric Flair's real name is Richard Morgan Flair. The peroxide-blond wrestled for some 40 years and also was known as The Nature Boy. 

The 64-year-old has won many pro wrestling titles including in the WWE.
