TMZ has obtained the 911 call placed by Ric Flair ... moments after the wrestling legend discovered his son Reid Flair unresponsive in a Charlotte, NC hotel room.

Ric frantically tells the operator, "He's out cold! He's out cold and he's purple!"

As we reported, Ric's 25-year-old son Reid -- who had just returned to the U.S. after wrestling in Japan -- passed away on March 29th.

The investigation into Reid's death is ongoing, but he has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past.

TMZ are the worst people on earth. You are all pieces of ****. You should all get real jobs, and not capitalize on the death of someone. I bet you wouldn't be posting this up, if it were your son, or wife, or husband. But all you care about it making money.

Not only was that not Ric Flair, that was not an actual 911 dispatcher - dispatchers are trained to observe very strict protocols in questioning those reporting an emergency, and don't sound like stupid kids.

You got trolled, TMZ. Serves you right for pretending to be some bastion of journalistic integrity.

Don't ask TMZ to stop posting - that's like saying tape your mouth - news is conversational news and celebrities have no immunity even if there was any - don't listen if you can't use your brain & think

Horrible - posting the worst moment of someone's life for all the world to hear. I'm very sorry for this man's loss.

Doesn't sound like flair? Maybe because his son is dying in front of his eyes and his voice is a little distraught. Bunch of morons. It's him u idiots. And if ur a ric flair fan and follower u can definitely tell its him. Always some kind of conspiracy with people. Come off it.
