When you have the chance, take a look at this new section on Notinhalloffame.com and let us know if any of these former baseball players are Hall of Fame worthy!
Another Hall of Fame Class equals for us another Hall of Fame revision.

Approximately seven weeks ago, the WWE Hall of Fame inducted the Class of 2017, which took many off of our list.  This included:

Kurt Angle (Ranked #6)

Toots Mondt (Ranked #17)

“Ravishing” Rick Rude (Ranked #20)

Haystacks Calhoun (Ranked #32)

The Rock and Roll Express (Ranked #41)

Diamond Dallas Page (Ranked #47)

Rikidozan (#68)

Dr. Jerry Graham (#80)

Teddy Long (#134)

June Byers (#199)

Beth Phoenix (#240)

With the removal of these wrestlers, we have moved one wrestler from the future candidates section (The Big Show), and have added more additional performers who we may have forgotten before.  Rankings have changed based on your votes and comments and continuing career analysis.

Let’s get right to it, shall we?

While it is a controversial choice for some of you, we just can’t move the owner of the WWE, Vince McMahon out of the top spot.  Love him or hate him, most of you who started watching professional wrestling did so because of the marketing brilliance of McMahon. 

The Undertaker returns at #2.  With his recent retirement at Wrestlemania it is widely speculated that he will be inducted next year.  Frankly, we are hoping that is the case.

The Rock also returns at the same position, #3.  Like the Undertaker, when the Rock gets in, he will without question be the headliner. 

Triple H returns at #4.  While the resume of Triple H is certainly Hall of Fame worthy, though with him being a high ranking executive, it is actually a lot harder to induct him.  Maybe this is “Vince 2.0”, and he will be on this list for years to come. 

The late Ivan Koloff moved up two spots from #7 to #5.  There was talk about inducting him two years ago, but now any induction for the former WWWF World Heavyweight Champion would be posthumous.

Chris Jericho had a huge jump from #8 to #6.  While he is coming off of one of his most entertaining years in the ring, Y2J is 46 years old and older than the mandatory age of 45, which we placed to move Futures to the main list, even if they are active competitors. 

Bruiser Brody took a bit of a tumble as he dropped from #5 to #7.

Dave Batista, whose Hollywood run tells us he won’t be returning to the WWE anytime soon climbed one spot to #8.

Recently retired Daniel Bryan went up one spot to #10.  Bryan currently serves as the Smackdown General Manager.

Rounding out the top ten is The Big Show, our lone transfer from the Future Candidates Section to our main list.  While Show is in the best shape of his career, he will be 46 in February and is clearly on a reduced schedule.  He has been hinting retirement for years.

Here are the other new entries:

Seiji Sakaguchi at #153.

Alfonso Dantes at #186.

The Von Brauners at #197.

Jun Akiyama at #216.

Angelo Poffo at #292.

The Missouri Mauler at #314.

Bill DeMott at #338.

Dan Severn at #343.

Justin Credible at #353.

Pak Song at #355.

Stevie Richards at #359.

Duke Keomuka at #361.

Earl Hebner at #363.

Judy Martin at #367.

Ray Mendoza at #369.

Balls Mahoney at #370.

Hayabusa at #372.

Perro Aguayo Jr. at #373.

Al Madril at #374.

Bill Alfonso at #375.

Tony Anthony at #376.

Jamie Noble at #377.

The Disco Inferno at #378.

Velvet McIntyre at #379.

Sweet Daddy Siki at #380.

We have also increased our list from 365 to 380, and will likely add 20 more by the year’s end to bring it to an even 400.

You know what we want you to do!

Take a look and cast your votes and offer your opinions as those help us shape our future Notinhalloffame.com WWE List.
The music world woke up to some sad news today.

In what may be a suicide, Chris Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog has died at the age of 52 while in tour in Detroit. Michigan.

Born in Seattle, Cornell formed Soundgarden in 1984.  The group would release their first EP in 1987 and would be courted by multiple labels as they along with other Grunge bands of the area (Nirvana, Pearl Jam) were leading an alternative music explosion.  Prior to Soundgarden’s breakthrough to the mainstream in 1994, he formed Temple of the Dog, a grunge supergroup with members of Pearl Jam, which also accelerated the attention that Cornell would later receive.

94’ was easily Cornell and Soundgarden’s greatest career commercially with the release of Superunknown.  The album generated hits such as “Spoonman” and “Black Hole Sun” and showed off the range both lyrically and melodically of Cornell. 

While he would never reach that height of mainstream success again, Cornell would always be working whether it was as a solo, with Soundgarden or Audioslave and was one of the most respected musicians of his day.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Chris Cornell at this time.
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced their four member Class of 2017, and with two of them you certainly don’t have to be Canadian to know who they are. 

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Neil Young, headlines this years Class.  Having written numerous songs and albums, it is actually ore of a surprise that he hasn’t been chosen already.  Young is joined by the politically conscious singer, Bruce Cockburn, who has had significant crossover success across the border.

Montreal band Beau Dommage and French-Canadian composer, Stephane Venne rounds out the Class.

The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony will take place at Toronto’s Massey Hall on September 23.
