Not in Hall of Fame News

RIP Harmon Killebrew

We here at notinhalloffame mourn the loss of Harmon Killebrew, An amazing Minnesota Twin and one of the best power hitters of all time. The Hall of Fame Baseball star will be missed well beyond the borders of Minnesota.

Its Getting There.....

Patince everyone.... The new Baseball, Football and WWE List is being worked on. We hope to have them all completed by June 15. We promise!
Carlos Delgado officially called it a career, and we here at notinhalloffame are wondering just side of the bubble he is on. The three time Silver Slugger Award Winner belted 473 Home Runs and drove in 1,512 RBIs over his career, which are impressive numbers....though not so much in the steroid era. Now this is where it gets interesting for us. Delgado's numbers were not the same as other power hitting first baseman (he was only an All Star twice), but by all accounts he competed clean. Fred McGriff may not get in, and it can be argued that Delgado…

Edge Retires.

Last night, Adam Copeland who performed for well over a decade as Edge in the WWE retired due to excessive neck issues. In the next six to eight weeks, we will be revamping our WWE list, and Edge will have a high place on it. Is he top five, top ten, top twenty? We think he should be ranked very high.
Is anyone really surprised? Rather than face what would have been a 100 game suspension for violation of the MLB drug policy, Manny Ramirez retired today from the Tampa Bay Rays. Statistacally, Ramirez has few equals. He leaves the game with 555 career Home Runs and a whopping career OPS of .996, and there is nobody that can question his on-field credentials for a bust in Cooperstown. But we all know that it does not work that way does it? It has been made very clear what the baseball writers stance is on PED users. Mark McGwire's HOF support dipped…
With the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony being held tonight, we here at notinhalloffame thought we would take a look at the complete class. We have inductions here that absolutely delight us, suprise us, baffle us and disgust us. Of course, why should this class be any different than any other year? #3 Shawn Michaels We kind of thought he would be going in this year. The Heartbreak Kid lost his retirement match to the Undertaker at last year's Wrestlemania and despite the multitude of grapplers who have claimed to call it a career, we really believe Michaels. There…
What A Rush! Now we're talking. After a few suspect announcements for the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame Class, our highest rated Tag Team, The Road Warriors have been announced to the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2011. We had them ranked at #4, which makes two of top 10 (along with #3 selection, Shawn Michaels) selected this year. We were worried about this class....we are not anymore.

Mike Hampton Retires

Well gang another Baseball Star retired today during the Spring Training Season. Mike Hampton called it a career and ended his attempt to earn a roster spot with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Hampton will not be entering Cooperstown, and it is doubtful that his support will reach the five percent in his opening year of eligibility. With that said, there was a time when many pundits thought he had a shot. Hampton was the runner up for the National League Cy Young Award in 1999 and followed it up with a solid campaign with the Mets. It was here that Hampton…
We apologize for being a little late with this, but congratulations go out to Abdullah the Butcher for his induction to the WWE Hall of Fame. We have to admit, that we never thought it would happen due to his lack of WWE tenure, but it is an induction that we are thoroughly behind.

RIP Oliver Humperdink

Boy, am I getting tired of writing about people passing away. However, I guess when you start a website that focuses on legendary figures, there is a good chance that this will happen on a regular basis. The latest name is known only to wrestling fans, that being, Sir Oliver Humperdink who was a long time manager in regional promotions and had a near one year stint in the WWF. Humperdink was at time a wrestler himself, but he did not have the physical gifts to be a headliner. He worked his way into managing, and was a fixture in…
