Not in Hall of Fame News

In a recent interview with Fox News, Todd Rundgren was asked about his second Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination.  His reaction bordered on apathy, yet respectful of the desire of his fans, a trope that we see often from many in his position. He had this to say: Fox News: “When it comes to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, some artists are all for it. Others feel it’s a popularity contest. What’s your stance?”Rundgren: “Well, I’ve never taken it seriously for one thing... When they decided that this was a good idea, I already had like three careers *laughs*. So…

RIP: Rene Goulet

It was announced today by the Cauliflower Alley Club, that former WWWF World Tag Team Champion, Rene Goulet passed away at the age of 86.  Goulet had passed away in May of this year, but the family has only made the announcement of his death public today.

Less than an hour ago, it was announced that the New World Order (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman) will be entering the WWE Hall of Fame.  It has how been announced that Dave Bautista will be joining them in the Hall.  Dave Bautista cut his teeth in the WWE farm promotion, Ohio Valley Wrestling as “Leviathan”, and the 300 pound behemoth would be brought up shortly as “Deacon Batista”, the henchman of D-Von Dudley when he was doing his reverend gimmick.  That didn’t last, and he was moved to the RAW brand and placed in a faction with…
This was early. We haven’t gotten to the Royal Rumble yet, and it has been announced that the New World Order will be entering the WWE Hall of Fame.  The announcement came from ESPN.  The Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on April 2, 2020, as part of the Wrestlemania 36 weekend.  While there were many members of the NWO, only Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan and Syxx (Sean Waltman) will be inducted. The New World Order angle tipped the ratings war in favor of World Championship Wrestling for nearly two years. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash appeared on WCW television as…
Another huge day has happened as the Modern Baseball Era Committee has announced that Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons will be joining the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2020.

Simmons was an eight-time All-Star who accumulated 2,473 Hits with 248 Home Runs over a career spent with the St. Louis Cardinals, Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves.  In his initial Hall of Fame ballot, Simmons only lasted one year where he received 3.7% of the…

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Carolina Panthers.  The Panthers were formed in 1995, and the expansion team has done well, winning the NFC twice in 2003 and 2015.  On both occasions, Carolina failed to win the Super Bowl, but making it this far twice is the envy of a few teams in the NFL. As for all of our top 50 players in football we look…

Yes, we know that this is taking a while! As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Denver Broncos.  The Nets were formed in 1960, as a charter member of the American Football League.  While the fanbase proved to be strong, the play on the field was not, and they had little to no success in the 1960s.  The first few seasons when they migrated to the NFL saw the same result, but a developing “Orange Crush” Defense, took…
