TNA Cover Ric Flair Attending WWE Hall Of Fame

International celebrity the Nature Boy Ric Flair is set to become the only wrestler in history to be inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Fame twice. Flair’s dominant 1980s wrestling group, the Four Horsemen, known to be the greatest in ring performers of all time, will be granted their seat in the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Miami, FL on March 31st, the day before Wrestlemania XXVIII. Flair will be inducted along-side fellow members of the Four Horsemen: Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, and J.J. Dillon.

The news of Flair’s second induction was followed by a firestorm of controversy. Questions flew about whether Flair would attend the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony as he is currently under contract with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling. Understanding what a huge honor this is for Flair, TNA is graciously supporting him in the decision to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony alongside his fellow inductees. “Being inducted once was one of the greatest accomplishments of my career, so I’m humbled and honored to be recognized again. I wouldn’t miss the ceremony for the world,” says Flair.

TNA President Dixie Carter says, “We are proud of Ric’s many accomplishments and contributions he has made to the world of professional wrestling and beyond. We wish to congratulate him on yet another honor he truly deserves.”

Flair, a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, was inducted individually into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. On becoming a two-time inductee his agent Melinda Morris Zanoni of Legacy Talent and Entertainment says, “We are all so proud to be watching Ric continue to make history. There will never be an athlete more deserving of wearing two Hall of Fame rings than Ric Flair.”

Former WWE grappler Layfield — known as Bradshaw — lost to him at Wrestlemania 21 back in 2005.

That defeat ushered in Cena's first world title reign and set the tone for him to become one of the industry's biggest stars.

But Layfield claims he always knew his fellow American was destined for the very top.

He said: "I knew Cena could be the guy, there was no doubt in my mind. What he's done is just phenomenal.

"I could not be happier for him. He's one of the most hard working guys I have ever seen, who just has a knack for this business.

"I hear that he can't wrestle — he can wrestle. Drawing a crowd is working. I think he's done a wonderful job.

"What do you want? A guy that can go out there and do a bunch of seamless wristlocks and anklelocks, or do you want a guy who is going to put a bunch of people in seats and entertain them?

"To me a guy who can entertain is a great worker. I don't understand why purists would say that he wasn't one on any level, because I think he is."

Cena will collide with The Rock in the main event at Wrestlemania 28 this weekend in Miami.

The pair have been locked in a bitter feud for months but will finally settle their differences at the Sun Life Stadium.

Layfield added: "I see all this stuff on Twitter going back between The Rock and Cena.
