While looking up some WWE stuff online, I noticed Bob Backlund isn't in the Hall of Fame.

Does anybody know any reason Vince might not want to put him in? Or has it just never been the right time?

What, for ONE guest hosting appearance? Oh, wait. Not him, HIM. Sorry.

I believe Vince HAS asked Backlund before... and was turned down. They'll probably keep him in reserve until the next time they're near his homebase (which may be never).

IIRC Backlund was going in at Wrestlemania 20 but pulled out when Pete Rose was added to the inductees.

They have offered a spot for Bob but he doesn't want it (yet). Reason being is Bob thinks he has "one more run" and thinks the Hall Of Fame would only be appropriate if he was done for good. So he'll be in one day, it's up to him when. This was confirmed on one of the Legends Roundtables on 24/7.

Snow reminded me of Tazz before Tazz was the polished commentator he is now. Some good wisecracks, some good insight, but he didn't have the flow down but that will come with time.
