WWE.com just announced on their website that "The Nature Boy," Ric Flair, will be present for the Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday night.

Ever since The Four Horsemen were announced as entrants into the Hall of Fame, rumors ran wild across the Internet about whether or not Ric Flair would be able to show up.

Ric Flair is currently under contract for TNA wrestling, and officials in WWE were not sure if TNA would allow Flair to attend.

Ric Flair had made statements in the past that he would be there whether TNA liked it or not, which probably would have led to potential problems between Flair and TNA.

Thankfully, TNA and WWE were able to arrange for Flair to be present for the induction of The Four Horsemen.

Ric Flair was the leader of The Four Horsemen, and in reality, it would not have been the same without him there as they were inducted.

Saturday night in Miami, The Four Horsemen ride again.
