After it was announced last Monday night on RAW that The Four Horsemen (Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, & J.J. Dillon) will be inducted into the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame, questions immediately arose whether or not Ric Flair would be attending the induction considering Flair is under contract to TNA. This will be the first time in history that WWE has inducted someone into the Hall of Fame while that person is under contract with a rival promotion.
At a recent autograph session, “The Nature Boy” said that he will be “on stage” for the induction of the Horsemen on March 31 in Miami. Since the induction was announced last Monday night, there have reportedly been no discussion between Flair and TNA regarding his appearance and that TNA had no idea about the induction until the announcement was made.
Ric Flair reportedly still talks with Vince McMahon on a regular basis and Triple H called Flair before RAW last Monday to inform him of the induction and, presumably, that is when Flair agreed to appear. The WWE as a whole really wants Flair to be at the ceremony and they also want Flair to be involved with the WWE Network.
Ric Flair will be the first person in history to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice as Flair was first inducted in 2008.
In other Hall of Fame news, WWE is reportedly looking to induct former WWE Champion Yokozuna, who passed away back in 2000. In addition to being a two-time WWE Champion, Yokozuna is also a two-time World Tag Team Champion and was the winner of the 1993 Royal Rumble Match.
