Ric Flair claims a physical WWE hall of fame is coming

The Nature Boy appears to have let slip some insider info on WWE’s plans for a physical Hall of Fame.

Wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has claimed that WWE is actively in the process of building a physical hall of fame location in Orlando, Florida. There have been rumors several times over the past ten years that a physical WWE hall of fame was in the works, but nothing concrete has ever materialized.

“WWE is actually in the process of building a Hall of Fame, a physical structure in Orlando,” Flair said during his appearance yesterday on ESPN’s The Jump. “It’s been delayed too, due to COVID.”

The topic came up during Flair’s appearance on The Jump when the Nature Boy was explaining how his iconic golden robe was the inspiration for Dame7, Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard’s latest Adidas signature shoe.

Flair revealed that WWE had purchased the golden robe and intends for it to be on display its new physical Hall of Fame in Orlando.

“They purchased the robe and wanted to put that in there,” said Flair. “It would be something that I wore that they would be showcasing in the Hall.”

The dirtiest player in the game also joked that he’d like for WWE to put them in the entertainment wing of its Hall of Fame once its built, so he can become the first three-time HOF’er.

“They’ve been tremendous to me in so many different levels,” said Flair. “But I’m after them now to give me a thing for the entertainment wing of the HOF.”

In the past WWE has openly spoken about the possibility of building a physical Hall of Fame. Early in 2020 before COVID was in full swing, WWE CEO Vince McMahon said during a WWE shareholders call that the company isn’t fond of brick and mortar locations, but that a physical Hall of Fame is still a possibility.

“Bricks and mortar is something that, generally speaking, we, other than office buildings and office space of course, that we’re not necessarily fond of, but nonetheless, again the interest in that continues to build and it’s still a possibility somewhere down the line,” said McMahon.
