Without Tony Vellano and George "The Animal" Steele the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum would NOT be an organization today. George spent several hours over the past year passing on his knowledge and thought process behind the creation of the Hall of Fame categories to the Texas PWHF Board of Directors. His love and knowledge of the history of this amazing business is above all! According to a dear friend, George was "busting chops" until the last breath.
The thoughts and prayers of the PWHF Board of Directors, our volunteers and the entire wrestling community are with George, his wife Pat, his children, family and dear friends.
Professional Wrestling has lost many in the past few weeks, but none hit harder, closer to home than the loss of George "The Animal" Steele. 
2017 will be the 16th Induction for the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum. This Induction Class is an amazing class for true Ring Professionals.
We are excited to say that every Inductee and / or their families have been contacted about their Inductions and to date five of the living seven have committed to attend the ceremonies in May.

As always, if you have any questions regarding the Induction and events planned contact the hall by EMAIL or calling 1.844.307.7943!

PWHF - Changing of Territories.....

Just a look back at 2016, the changing of the territories for the PWHF as it moved from Amsterdam, NY under the guidance of Tony Vellano to Wichita Falls, TX with the Texas Board of Directors and President Johnny Mantell guiding the organization and museum into the future. Great things to come in 2017 and our "Sweet 16" Induction year! Watch world, the PWHF is moving forward.
