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.

Seems like wrestlers are more messed up than porn stars.

No parent should outlive their child, but to find them like that? Horrible. My heart goes out to the family.

This sounds nothing like Ric Flair and as far as I know, he wasn't near Reid when this happened. He has a blood clot and was at home resting and is now hospitalized. Check your sources, TMZ and find who this really is...

The person on that call does NOT sound like Ric Flair. He sounds way too young, and he doesn't even have the same accent. And he doesnt even say "My Son"
