Not in Hall of Fame News

It is another big day for us at Notinhalloffame.com! Last December, The Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it’s third full class as voted by a one year long vote by the public. That class comprised of Wyld Stallyns and Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. They joined previous inductees, Gorillaz, Tenacious D, Spinal Tap, The Blues Brothers and The Monkees. Like in previous years, the opening round began with over 500 Fictional Musicians which has been reduced to 15 Fictional Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Finalists.

Now that the Baseball regular season is over we know that there will be significant retirements occurring in the next few months but on the last weekend we knew that we saw that end of David Wright’s career. Wright played two games after coming back from serious injury that prematurely ended his 2016 season. Those were his first games back in 855 days Wright made his Major League debut in 2004 with the New York Mets, which would be the only franchise that he ever played for. Wright would prove to very good hitter as he batted .300 five times…
We have another significant retirement to discuss as Brian Gionta announced that he is retiring from professional hockey and has taken a job with the Buffalo Sabres as a Developmental Coach. From Rochester, New York, Brian Gionta was drafted 82nd Overall in 1998 but prior to joining the professional ranks he went to play for Boston College where he would help the institution win the National Championship in his senior year. Shortly after, he would win the Stanley Cup in his second year in the NHL with the New Jersey Devils. In the 2005-06 season Gionta would by far have…
It was announced today that Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Tommy McDonald passed away at the age of 84. There are no details at this time as to the cause of death.

McDonald was a star immediately going to five consecutive Pro Bowls (1958-62) and he was also a First Team All Pro in 1959 and 1960, the latter…
It seems every time we mention the TNA (now Impact) Hall of Fame we always wonder if there will ever be another inductee. Having said that we still wonder that as despite Impact’s in ring product being the best it has been in years it remains low in the ratings and is on a small channel (PopTV). Still, we are very happy with the wrestling promotion’s announcement that Abyss will be the next member of their Hall. We think that is an incredible choice, as Abyss (Christopher Park) has been a mainstay for the company literally since the beginning as…
We wanted to wait a couple of days to see if this would stick. Even after it was posted on his social media, we still wanted to wait. It was just too bizarre. As regular visitors to Notinhalloffame.com are aware, every time a significant player from anyone of the big four North American leagues (MLB, NHL, NFL, NFL) we comment on it as the Hall of Fame eligibility clock begin, whether or not they have a legitimate chance or not.   As such we are ready to discuss Vontae Davis’ retirement from professional football. First off, the retirement of Davis came…
A very significant retirement took place as Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings has announced that he is done playing hockey. Zetterberg has a degenerative back condition that can not be cured by rest or surgery and he opted to end playing so that he increase his quality of life in his later years. Playing his entire NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, Zetterberg was a seventh round pick from Sweden who was not forecasted to have a career as successful as it was. The runner-up for the Calder Trophy in the 2002-03 season, Zetterberg would blossom into…
