While watching Monday Night Raw, something interesting happened.

It wasn't Kane and John Cena battling.

It wasn't Zack Ryder and Eve's very awkward segments.

It certainty wasn't Chris Jericho's amazing five minutes.

It was the announcement that Ric Flair and the "Four Horsemen" are being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

Uh, last time I checked, Ric Flair worked for TNA. I believe he even appeared on their PPV last night. Now I don't usually watch TNA or follow their news, but this must have their executives going crazy.

I think this is one of the most fascinating stories in pro wrestling, and it's only been around for an hour!

Could it be that Flair's contract is running up and he already agreed to return to the WWE?

Would WWE induct one of the most famous wrestling stables of all time without their leader contractually allowed to appear?

Did WWE and TNA actually reach an agreement for this? Would they work together?

What do you guys think is going on?
