Regarding Ric Flair, this will be the first time WWE has ever inducted someone contracted to a rival promotion into their Hall. Sources indicate that Triple H called Ric Flair on Monday, before RAW aired and informed him of the Horsemen induction. Flair was at this week's TNA iMPACT! tapings in Orlando when he found out.
It appears key people in TNA weren't aware of the induction until it aired on RAW. As of yesterday, no officials in TNA had spoken to Flair about it. Ric Flair and Vince McMahon do talk so the idea of inducting the Horsemen was likely brought up in the past. It's been discussed internally ever since WWE made amends with JJ Dillon and Arn Anderson alone was expected for the Hall of Fame in Atlanta last year.
WWE wants Flair to be there and likely wants him to be involved in the Network when it launches in the Fall.
