The Grappler Len Denton and B. Brian Blair sign one of this years Induction Shirts for one of the many people in the Meet & Greet Autograph Line.
During the past 15 years of inductions, the PWHF has held a Meet & Greet Autograph Line where a ticket is sold that allows for an autograph and photo of all Hall of Fame Inductees and other wrestling legends. This years autograph line was one of the largest in the PWHF history with 27 hall of famers, legends and young superstars in attendance to sign. Unfortunately, just like any other wrestling event, there were a few wrestlers who previously committed but for one reason or another could not make it to the event. "Subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control" is standard on any wrestling event. Terry Funk was not happy about missing the Meet & Greet but had a great time at the Induction Banquet, he inducted Greg Valentine and then he came by the PWHF Sunday and spent several hours enjoying the museum and talking with fans.
The Announcement was well received and attended by local government officials, VIP's and all the surrounding News Media. All excited about the "surprise" announcement at 2pm on November 19, 2015. As the announcement was made you could see the smiles and excitement in the eyes throughout the lobby of the Big Blue. Everyone in Wichita Falls, TX has a memory about wrestling, and everyone who has a memory of wrestling around the World deserves to make a trip here to see this amazing collection, the new displays planned and the amazing community that has embraced the History of Professional Wrestling and it's Wrestlers!
