Here is what the TMZ article has to say about it.
Flair surprised everyone last night when he showed up to the Westin Hotel in Hoboken -- where the WWE wrestlers and employees are staying -- to hangout with his comrades before the event began.Good for Ric if the visit did indeed "lift his spirits." He is obviously dealing with a terrible situation and hopefully this was a nice diversion for him.
We're told Ric was visibly shaken when he arrived, but as the night went on, the love for Flair and his son was obvious. Our spies say each wrestler came over to pay their respects and offer support and Flair's spirits were lifted tremendously.
