Ric Flair Inducting Sting into Hall of Fame
According to upi.com, 16 time world Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair will be inducting Sting into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. The ceremony takes place April 2 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas as part of the Wrestlemania week festivities.
UPI reported back in January that Sting was the first name to be announced as a 2016 inductee. He joins The Godfather and The Fabulous Freebirds this year. The 56 year old Sting made his in-ring debut with the Ultimate Warrior in 1985 as part of The Blade Runners and eventually moved onto singles action as a popular wrestling star in World Championship Wrestling. In the 1990’s, Sting had memorable feuds with stars like “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. Sting also had a run with TNA wrestling in the 2000’s and finally showed up in WWE in 2014. Sting’s only matches in the WWE were in 2015 against Triple H at Wrestlemania 31 in and with Seth Rollins at Night of Champions.
As a big wrestling fan, and a fan of both Ric Flair and Sting, this is great news. I've got one thing to say...Wooooo!
