Steve Austin Requests Ric Flair to Induct Him In The WWE Hall Of Fame

Colin VassalloCorrespondent IJanuary 18, 2009

Mike Johnson over at PWInsider.com is reporting that Stone Cold Steve Austin has requested that Ric Flair should induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The pick certainly raises some red flags as the Nature Boy is no longer associated with the company and the final say on who inducts who ultimately rests in the hands of Vince McMahon and his team.

Having Ric Flair at the ceremony however would be something special and will help the hype for the Hall of Fame event.

In his latest blog, Jim Ross addressed the situation.

"If I was asked once I was asked a dozen times who was going to induct Steve and I, for one, hope it is Ric Flair as that would be like Babe Ruth inducting Mickey Mantle into MLB's HOF," said Ross.
