Lucha Libre means "Free Fight". In the Spanish heritage, Lucha Libre is a style of wrestling characterized by colorful masks and high flying, speedy maneuvers utilizing the ring ropes and theatrics.
In Mexico, Luchadores are huge celebrities in the ring but they also star in movies, comic books and television soap operas.
During the month of September, the PWHF has highlighted Lucha Libre with a display in our International area with items on loan from Dallas area collector and historian Roberto M. such as El Santo and Blue Demon Jr masks as well as items from the museum such as Rey Mysterio Jr.'s mask, Fishman's mask, lucha libre magazines, comic books and others.
The Yellow Rose of Texas, David Von Erich and all the Von Erichs are considered true sons of Texas. Anytime you talk Texas wrestling, the Von Erich name is always one of the names and eras that is talked to widely about.
The family has a rich history of wrestling all over Texas.
PWHF has a complete display of David's jacket, boots and many family photographs for all to see....
Women have been a part of professional wrestling for years and have a rich history in the sport. We are lucky to have not only many items from inductees from our Ladies division but from ladies who have crawled through ropes across the world.
The PWHF is a 501(c)3, nonprofit in the State of Texas. 2016 will be our 16th year of of the doors being open to this amazing museum of memorabilia. When we open the doors to the Big Blue annex, it will be in it's 3rd and final home in Wichita Falls, TX. Being a nonprofit, the PWHF has always run on donations, sponsors and the minimal revenue from the Induction weekends. In NY, the President and a couple of volunteers (literally) ran the Hall. We KNOW we have a true HUGE group of men and women of all ages that are interested in donating a few hours of their time a month to help the PWHF with tours, daily activities and a ton of fun events planned throughout the years!!!
