Ric Flair To Accept His NWA Hall Of Fame Award Next Month
Back in June, World Wrestling Entertainment prevented Ric Flair from making an advertised appearance at the 2008 National Wrestling Alliance Hall of Fame ceremony, where he was to be inducted. With Ric Flair no longer under WWE contract, the NWA has announced the Nature Boy will now get his chance to accept the honor. The NWA issued the following release this afternoon:
