— Ric Flair will indeed be inducted into the NWA Hall of Fame, as the National Wrestling Alliance sent out the following press release:

“Charlotte, NC (May 30, 2008) �” The word legend is thrown around a lot these days, but â<80><9c>The Nature Boyâ<80> Ric Flair is the very definition of the word and the National Wrestling Alliance® will be inducting him into the NWA┢ Hall of Fame on June 7th at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA!

Flair is an icon of Pro Wrestling and has collected 16 World Heavyweight Championships including 8 recognized by the NWA┢, 6 by World Championship Wrestling and 2 for World Wrestling Entertainment. Flair was also the leader of â<80><9c>The Four Horsemen,â<80> a dominant group of fighters that ruled the Pro Wrestling world for many, many years.

â<80><9c>With Ric Flairâ<80><99>s involvement, Iâ<80><99>d say our 60th Anniversary event is truly going to be a history making one. I have been around the NWA┢ longer than anyone and I can tell you this marks the first time in close to 20 years that Flair is going to step into an NWA┢ building,â<80> said NWA┢ Executive Director Robert K. Trobich, he continued â<80><9c>Atlanta this is a great homecoming for many of these men, I mean Rich, Sheik, The Midnights, Koloff and Flair at the site of the old Omni? I hope every wrestling fan in Atlanta comes out and shows the support these men earned and deserved. This may be the greatest Class weâ<80><99>ve ever inducted.â<80>

Since the year 2000, Flair has wrestled for World Wrestling Entertainment on their RAW and Smackdown brands. Earlier this year he lost a match at WrestleMania 24 in Orlando, FL that required him to retire ending a storied 30 plus year career. Today Flair acts a WWE Ambassador, representing the company at special events.

The 2008 NWA┢ Hall of Fame Ceremony will take place on June 7th in Atlanta, GA. It is a featured attraction during the NWA┢ 60th Anniversary event. Tickets to this event are on sale now at ticketmaster.com or the Philips Arena Box Office.”
