Ric Flair’s professional wrestling career lasted an impressive five decades, from 1972 until his final match in Nashville, TN on July 31st, 2022. Throughout this period, he established himself as a dominant force, earning the distinction of being a 16-time World Champion across the National Wrestling Alliance and World Championship Wrestling as well as securing numerous other accolades such as the WWE Intercontinental Championship. In fact, now it seems Flair wants a third Hall Of Fame induction.
In addition to his numerous individual accomplishments, Ric Flair played a pivotal role in the creation and leadership of one of the most legendary factions in professional wrestling history, the Four Horsemen stable. Alongside Ole and Arn Anderson, and Tully Blanchard, Flair was a founding member of the group in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. He subsequently led the Four Horsemen through various incarnations in both NWA and WCW.
Ric Flair has the honor of being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice, once in 2008 for his illustrious singles career, and again in 2012 as a member of the Four Horsemen. Not content with just two Hall of Fame rings, the Nature Boy is now setting his sights on a historic third induction, a feat that would set him apart as one of the most celebrated wrestlers in WWE history.
While speaking on his podcast, To Be The Man, Flair addressed Dave Bautista’s Hall of Fame status. During the discussion, The Nature Boy made it clear he is eyeing a third Hall Of Fame induction. This would be possible if Evolution as a whole gets inducted into the Hall Of Fame.
“I think it’s great. As soon as they get Dave in, then we can get Evolution in.”
We will have to wait and see whether Ric Flair will eventually get inducted into the Hall Of Fame for a third time. He could see an induction with Evolution, but that would also include Randy Orton, Batista, and Triple H with the Nature Boy’s third ring. After all, it would certainly be a historic feat and be yet another feather on his cap.
