The Wrestling-Online Newsletter is reporting that WWE.com has revealed that “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair will be appearing with Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, and J.J. Dillon for the induction of The Four Horsemen into the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame. Flair vowed to appear at the ceremony after The Four Horsemen were announced for the Hall of Fame a couple of months ago, which came as a surprise to many considering that “The Nature Boy” is under contract with rival promotion, TNA Wrestling. Per the terms of TNA’s talent contracts, anyone under contract with TNA is forbidden from working with the WWE, so either TNA has agreed to let Flair appear or Flair will be appearing whether TNA wants him to or not, which may severe his ties with the company. Flair is also expected to appear with his fellow inductees on the WrestleMania stage the night after their induction.
Ric Flair will be making history at this year’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony as he will be the only legend in history to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice.
The 2012 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place this Saturday night, March 31, at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL and will air as a one-hour special (featuring the inductions of Edge, Mike Tyson, and The Four Horsemen) on April 2 at 8/7c on the USA Network.
