Ric Flair was called Monday night and notified the Four Horsemen would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame before the announcement aired on Raw Supershow. Ironically enough, Flair was in Orlando for the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings. It’s unknown at this point if Flair’s TNA contract will allow him to make a televised appearance at the induction ceremony this March. His contract will not prevent him from attending as he was there last year for the induction of Shawn Michaels.
A lot of readers have asked what Flair’s relationship with WWE is like after returning to the ring in TNA. From what I’ve been told, Flair hasn’t burned any bridges and the feeling is he should be allowed to go out and make a living despite the tremendous send-off he was given four years ago. Flair sees it as he wanted to return with WWE but there wasn’t interest in the return of his on-screen character and his friendship with Hulk Hogan provided him with a new opportunity.
Flair was first inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before his final match in WWE on March 29, 2008 by Triple H.
