In 2008, Ric Flair was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. He became the first man in history to get inducted into the Hall of Fame as an active competitor.
He then lost to Shawn Michaels the next night at WrestleMania 24 and his WWE in-ring career came to an end due to the stipulation of the match.
In 2012, Flair became the first man to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame twice, this time as a member of the 4 Horsemen.
Now, The Nature Boy is eyeing a 3rd WWE Hall Of Fame induction – as a member of Evolution. Below is what Flair said on his podcast:
Batista was announced for the WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2020, the ceremony for which took place in 2021. However, Batista’s induction was postponed because he wasn’t free.
With the theme for this year’s WrestleMania being Hollywood, there’s rumors going on that Batista will get inducted this time around.
If he gets inducted next month, then he’ll be able to promote his upcoming movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, to the WWE audience as well.
Evolution (Triple H, Ric Flair, Batista & Randy Orton) is one of the greatest factions in WWE history. The only one active from this stable is Orton (he will turn 43 this April). Evolution’s last reunion took place on SmackDown in 2018, where seeds for Batista vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 35 were planted.
