The National Wrestling Alliance issued the following statement in regard to the Flair situation this afternoon:

UPDATE ON 2008 NWA HALL OF FAME CEREMONY

Ric Flair, part of the 2008 NWA Hall of Fame class, will unfortunately not be present to receive this honor on Saturday, June 7, 2008 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. World Wrestling Entertainment, which has a contractual relationship with Flair, will not permit Flair to attend the ceremony.

"I am deeply sorry that Ric will not be in Atlanta for the Hall of Fame ceremony", said NWA Executive Director Robert K. Trobich. "Ric was very honored to be recognized by the NWA and wanted to be in Atlanta to thank his fans. Unfortunately, the WWE refused to allow him to be there. It is truly a sad action on their part, as the main people injured by the WWE's seeming petulance is the wrestling fans. Nonetheless, Ric Flair was a legend in the NWA long before the WWE was anything other than a regional promotion in the northeast. As such, Ric will still be a member of the 2008 class. He has earned that honor, and we intend to bestow it upon him", said Trobich.

The 2008 NWA Hall of Fame will commence on Saturday June 7, 2008 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. Tickets for this event are on sale at ticketmaster.com or the Philips Arena box office.

Why is WWE doing this. It is not like the NWA represent a treath for them anymore. I dont see why it would be a bad thing for the WWE to let Ric Flair go to the NWA hall of fame ceremony just because he's under contract with the WWE.

Vince, for once you could have done the right thing and gain some respect by the wrestling fans by letting Ric Flair attend the NWA HOF, but you didnt. So dont wonder why the ratings for your show are so low these days.
