Ric Flair: WWE is building a Hall of Fame in Orlando

During an appearance with Rachel Nichols on ESPN’s The Jump, Ric Flair said WWE is building a physical Hall of Fame in Orlando, Florida.

In talking about his gold robe for which the new Adidas/Damian Lillard “Ric Flair’ sneakers were inspired from, Flair said WWE had actually bought the robe for the Hall of Fame, but that the construction of it is being delayed due to the pandemic.

WWE has roots in the city with their Performance Center and relationship with Full Sail University in nearby Winter Park.

He added the robe is one of his favorites and joked that he asked WWE to get another Hall of Fame ring in the Entertainer wing. He is already the first two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee for himself and as part of the Four Horsemen.

WWE has yet to respond to an inquiry for comment.

Given WWE’s collection of memorabilia they have stored in their legendary warehouse in addition to the collections of thousands of wrestlers, the call for a physical Hall of Fame has been out there for decades.

They created their ceremonial Hall of Fame in 1993 with a single inductee: Andre The Giant. They continued with the process through 1996 and relaunched the concept in 2004 with induction ceremonies held every year during WrestleMania weekend.
