The PWHF Board of Directors and Fans around the globe send CONGRATULATIONS to all of the 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees.

Without further ado, this year's Hall of Fame Inductees are -


  • Pioneer Division - Charlie Fox and Baron Michele Leone

To date we have commitments to attend the induction from several living inductees including Beverly Shade and Bob Roop that we can announce now. We are also in talks with a couple past inductees that have not attended to accept their induction that we hope to sway to attend this year as well. Check back routinely to see all the exciting activities and people planned for the 2019 PWHF Induction Weekend, May 16th, 17th & 18th, 2019 in downtown Wichita Falls, TX. 

Update - The online ticket site has been updated with this year's information, our events page has been updated with ticket info and the host hotel and other hotel contact info has been added. We will be posting the banquet location after the first of the year. We will continue to update the Events page with all of the confirmations of attendance as we receive them. 

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! 

The PWHF Museum is operated daily by Board Members and Volunteers who are as passionate about Wrestling as our visitors and fans..... Stop by to see what the real history of wrestling is all about!

The PWHF was created and continues today to tell all the stories of wrestling past, preserve the history for future generations. We are not affiliated with just one wrestling promotion but promote and recognize them all. We support all wrestling.
