A controversial segment which ended Raw last night has created an ongoing debate about whether WWE crossed a line by using the tragic death of Reid Flair as part of a story line involving his older sister, WWE Divas Champion Charlotte. Fan reaction to the segment has been decided negative, with the general opinion being that WWE shouldn’t be using Flair’s death by drug overdose in a wrestling story line, especially the part where Paige taunted Charlotte with his death, claiming her little brother “didn’t have much fight in him”. Meanwhile, personalities from around the world of professional wrestling were quick to weigh in with their opinions about Raw’s main event.

IMO using real tragedy is fine as long as family is okay with it. It's their life.
