Voting was held over the last month on the Benders Battlefield for the Steel Benders Hall of Fame. The top 5 vote getters and ties were elected to this year's class. Old man Rindo made it! This is a huge honor for me and I can't believe that I'm now a member of this elite group. Really makes all the hard work I have put in over the last few years worth it. I was blown away to receive the support I got from the voters. To join this group of benders in the hall has been a big goal of mine. Many of the legends from the sport were voted in last year:
Class of 2011
Joseph Greenstein: The Mighty Atom
Here's this year's class:
Class of 2012
David Wigren - Best all around steel bender in the world right now.
Carl Ansara - Best braced bender out there and a sick reverse.
Jedd Johnson - Done more to teach people how to bend than anyone else. And a damn good bender in his own right.
Mike Rinderle - No idea how this happened. Hopefully there's no recount. :)
Mike Hadland - One of the best unbraced benders to ever walk the planet. Great in all 3 styles
Mike Krahling - Incredible reverse and braced strength. Mike also holds the US Nationals Competition (Beast in the East) and is responsible for calibrating all the drill rod used in certs on the Battlefield.
Congratulations to all the new inductees!!!!
