The Four Horsemen to be inducted in the WWE Hall Of Fame
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jan 10, 2012 - 3:57:45 PM

The legendary group The Four Horsemen were announced yesterday on RAW as being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2012 the day before WrestleMania. The whole group - Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, Ric Flair and their manager JJ Dillon - will be inducted as one, which makes Nature Boy Ric Flair the only two-time Hall of Famer.

The Four Horseman included different wrestlers over the years however Flair and Anderson were the only two constant members since the group was created in the NWA in 1986. Anderson only quit the group when he had to retire, with his spot given to Curt Hennig during an emotional segment on WCW Nitro. The group disbanded in 1999.

The original members included Ric Flair, Arn and Ole Anderson and Tully Blanchard with JJ Dillon as their manager and after that, eleven other NWA/WCW wrestlers joined the group at some point during its history. Those wrestlers include Lex Luger, Barry Windham, Sting, Sid Vicious, Paul Roma, Brian Pillman, Chris Benoit, Steve McMichael, Curt Hennig, Jeff Jarrett and Dean Malenko.

Anderson, Blanchard, Windham and Dillon reunited on TV for the first time in over a decade when they appeared for the Ric Flair farewell on RAW on March 31, 2008.

It is not known if Ric Flair - who is part of TNA Wrestling - will be appearing at the Hall of Fame ceremony.
