Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Reason HBK didn’t mention Flair by name at the HOF ceremony

Despite being present in Atlanta last night, Shawn Michaels didn’t not mention buddy Ric Flair by name during his acceptance speech, and here is the reason why. Flair’s contract with TNA bars him from appearing at any other televised wrestling event. WWE can use old footage of him, but not new footage under his new TNA contract.

    That’s what I figured would happen.

    But why does mentioning a name matter as long as you don’t show him

    That may mean a real stiff penalty or fine for Mr Flair from TNA

    Ric should leave TNA and make one final return to WWE.
    In TNA there’s nothing else for him to do anymore.
    In WWE he could FINALLY retire more decently.
