Ric Flar Confirmed to Return to The WWE For The Hall Of Fame and Wrestlemania 25

Ryan MichaelSenior Writer IIIJanuary 23, 2009

When it was announced that Stone Cold Steve Austin was going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year he could think of only one man that he would want to induct him.

No, it wasn't Jim Ross, but that would be a good guess by anybody.

Steve Austin wanted none other than the Nature Boy Ric Flair to officially induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame. I personally found that to be rather surprising due to the friendship Austin has with Jim Ross, but I'm certain Steve has his own personal reasons.

As we all know Ric Flair has not been on good terms with Vince McMahon ever since he left the company last year. It appears as if Steve Austin has enough pull with Vince McMahon, and the WWE, to bring Ric Flair back into the picture.

The rumors are saying that Ric Flair is now confirmed to not only induct Austin at the 2009 Hall of Fame ceremony, but he also might make an appearance at Wrestlemania 25. No word yet as to what form or fashion that appearance might be.

Still, don't expect to see Ric Flair lace up his boots anytime soon,if ever. He seems to have made peace with his retirement and the respect he has for Shawn Michaels seems to also help motivate him to stay retired.

Even so, you can never have too much of the Nature Boy in any form or fashion.
