Might be a tad premature posting about this, but with the tragic passing of Reid Fliehr today (Ric's son), there might be a question mark over Ric Flair's participation at Axxess, specifically his VIP signing on Thursday night April 4th.

I really can't see Flair doing appearances at this time, nor should he be expected to.

R.I.P. Reid Fliehr.

Does anyone know what the Izod will charge for parking for Axxess and Raw? I note there is free parking at the MetLife to allow access to the WWE superstore, is the Izod walkable from there?

Thanks
