Reid Flair never got to wrestle Friday night after he passed away unexpectedly ... so the folks at Big Time Wrestling paid tribute to the 25-year-old with a 10 bell salute in his honor.
Reid -- who recently returned to the states after wrestling in Japan -- was scheduled to appear at an event for Big Time Wrestling in Hagerstown, MD along with his dad, WWE legend Ric Flair.
But Reid never made it -- he was found dead in his hotel room early Friday morning.
Following the tragic events, Big Time Wrestling took time out before the show began to honor the wrestler's life ... by giving him a traditional wrestler's memoriam.
Thanks to our friends at rfvideo.com for the clip.
Honored By Wrestling Org.
With 10-Bell Salute
