Backstage Update – The Ric Flair-WWE-TNA Deal

Source: Pwinsider.com

According to sources, the deal between WWE and TNA for Ric Flair to attend the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony was finalized Tuesday night. That is the reason the press release from both sides was issued yesterday.

The issue between WWE and TNA was not Flair attending but Flair, a contracted TNA talent, appearing on WWE’s WrestleMania pay-per-view, Hall of Fame highlights on WWE TV and the DVD release.

No word yet on what the negotiations were but there will be no TNA representatives or officials at the Hall of Fame ceremony.

    Hello Everyone,

    I would think that it would show some class if Dixie Carter went to the induction. She is his boss, and should be there to honor Ric Flair and everything he has done for wrestling.

    Its not about who he works for, Its about showing him respect for everything he has done in wrestling. If Dixie doesn't want to go, She should have someone there from TNA to show support for Flair.

    Thanks

      WWE's hall of fame is only for that company. No way in hell should she support WWE, that is conceding they are better. It would be different if it was a HOF for just wrestlers. But as you and I know that is not the case. Unless Drew Carey made some appearances as a young man I missed. Expect to see The Muppets at an upcoming HOF Ceremony.

        Hey Peckar,

        I think the biggest problem is, WWE is the only company that does have a Hall Of Fame.

        Her going to show support for Ric Flair isn't conceding, It would be showing class. Ric Flair works for her now, but another company showing him the respect he earned.

        If TNA has such a problem with all of this, Why don't they spend some money and make a Hall Of Fame for wrestling???

      TNA owes Ric Flair the same respect that he shows them- which is NONE!

    • Triple f says:

      Sorry, you’re wrong! It’s ALL about who he’s working for and CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED to!

  2. Rent_A_Geek says:

    Personally, I would be happy just to see a blurb on the bottom of the screen whenever Flair is in camera: "Ric Flair appears courtesy of Impact Wrestling". Simple, direct, to the point.

  3. KeizerGodzilla says:

    Highly unlikely. Flair is the glue that held the four Horsemen together. I think it will be more like Flair will drop TNAs name at least once in his speech. In the long run it may actually humble McMahon a little bit knowing that TNA isn't a push over by taking their talent even for just a night without some sort of recognition where they stand currently (meaning in another organization)

  4. dsd7x says:

    I think the deal includes Flair appearing without him saying TNA or Impact Wrestling. But the WWE will be paying TNA something.

  5. Peckar says:

    I hope you are right. Flair should name drop TNA regardless if he is allowed to or not.

  6. Bigmike885 says:

    Cosnidering Flair is more loyal to vince and wwe than he ever will be to TNA, i highly doubt he'll mention them unless it was part of the deal (which i doubt it is)

  7. Triple f says:

    BM885, You DOUBT that that was a part of the agreement. I DOUBT that there’s ANY DOUBT about it.

  8. Triple f says:

    dsd7x, PAY? Like what, lunch at Taco Bell for Dixie and a companion!
