The Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame inducted its first class in May, 2002.
In 2006, the PWHF began awarding the Senator Hugh Farley Award, which
is presented to a well-known wrestler who has made significant societal contributions outside of the squared circle.
Prior to the Senator Farley Award, the PWHF New York State Award was presented to an individual who
made significant contributions to the sport of Professional Wrestling in the PWHF's home state of New York.
