He’s still a star. There are legends in wrestling and then there are big legends in wrestling. Some of those top names in the history of the sport are going to be remembered above all others, with some of them receiving such attention even when they are still alive. That is the case with one of the biggest legends in wrestling history and now he has received another major honor.
Over the weekend, Ric Flair received his ring for being part of the inaugural class of the International Professional Wrestling Hall Of Fame. Flair received his ring from Hall of Fame President Seth Turner at the Showcase of Legends event in Albany, New York. The Hall of Fame, which was announced in 2019, will be held in New York, with a physical building being opened at some point in the future.
Flair has received some special honors in his life. Check out some of the more notable ones:
Opinion: This is one of those things that is hardly surprising anymore, as Flair is one of the most decorated professional wrestlers of all time. Flair has certainly earned his status and there will always be someone else who wants to give him an honor. It makes a lot of sense to put him in the inaugural class of an important Hall of Fame, as Flair is certainly someone who deserves the status.
