Our THOUGHTS and PRAYERS are sent to the entire VELLANO FAMILY on the passing of Tony's brother, Joe....

We want to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of the founding "Father" of the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame Mr. Tony Vellano's brother, Joseph Vellano. Tony and Joe along with all the Vellano's are a tight knit family. We know this is hard on them all and only send positive thoughts and sincere prayers to Tony and the family of Joe. 

On November 3rd, 2018, Joseph Michael Vellano passed away at home in Scotia, NY. Please visit the LINK for his entire Obituary. 

We send prayers and condolences to Tony and Holly Vellano, and the entire Vellano family during this terribly trying time.

2019 PWHF Ballot's are in the mail.....

Thank you all for the nominations for this year's ballot for the 2019 PWHF Class of Inductees. The ballots were mailed per rules and regulations and expected back no later post marked than Nov. 15th. The ballots will then be collected and counted by a select group of local business people. The announcement will be made once all of the Hall of Fame inductees or their families have been contacted. Watch our Facebook page and this website for all the information. 

The PWHF is proud of the growing archives of programs, personal photos & albums, news clippings, promotional photos and other pieces of history and research that has been acquired and donated from around the World. 

Thousands of these items are being scanned in and now made available via our subscription page on Patreon.....  The digitizing of these items is very time consuming process. We will work on this weekly. Through this site you will be supporting the archives of the PWHF as well as helping cover the costs of the scanning and processing of the archives. 

Special THANKS to Teddy Gordienko for spending weeks at the PWHF scanning documents, paperwork, letters, and other info for our site!
