Actually a question on ECW. Has the Mass Transit incident ever been inducted?
I'm not sure if that is actual Wrestlecrap. That was just pure stupidity on a lot of people's parts. Yeah, I know, Wrestlecrap celebrates the stupid, but it seems to be a goofy, innocent stupidity that gets recognized, not a "holy crap, that kid could've died in the ring" braindead-ness.
Plus it wouldn't make for a good induction since it would be virtually impossible for Triple Kelly to work in any Marx Brothers references.

Aren't wrestling companies like ECW required to do at least a rudimentary background check at first? I know if I was about to put someone in a wrestling ring, a brief rehearsal before hand and more than the word of two complete strangers would be prudent measures to take.
According to the book Hardcore History Eric Kulas (Mass Transit) claimed to be a graduate of Kowalski's school. The weird thing is they didn't try to verify it with Kowalski, even though he was in attendance that night!
As far as Billy Corgan, his angle was pretty harmless. His feud was with a non-wrestler comedy act. He didn't win any titles or even wrestle any matches. And his only interaction with any wrestlers (other than the Network interrupting his performance of the Star Spangled Banner) was him playing a bad ass guitar riff while accompanying Steve Corino to the ring to challenge Justin Credible for the ECW World Title during ECW's 2 night residency at the Hammerstein Ballroom in August of 2000.
As far as Corgan and Dangerously still carrying on the feud long after anyone would care (or even know what they were talking about)…..
