Yesterday, we had gotten word that Jim Ross stated that he heard “rumblings” that Ric Flair would be the man to induct Steve Austin, but at that point, it was just mere speculation. Jim Ross also volunteered himself to induct Stone Cold as well. PWInsider is reporting that Steve Austin had officially requested Ric Flair to induct him into the 2009 Hall of Fame. Whether that happens remain to be seen. Althought Ric Flair and WWE parted ways on mutual terms, Ric Flair’s departure was a bit shaky. Hopefully it won’t be a problem getting Flair back to be the man to induct Austin.
