Comedy Night / Wrestling Q & A
at the Iron Horse Pub

Thursday, May 19th at the Iron Horse Pub, The Grappler Len Denton took to the stage for a stand up routine with tales from the wrestling highways..... afterwards some of our wrestling legends in town joined The Grappler on stage to take questions from the crowd....
Cowboy Johnny Mantell (PWHF President), Tiger Conway Jr, Butcher Vachon, Wild Bill Irwin and Leilani Kai joined Len. The crowd spent hours asking questions about wrestling, road stories where they gave very candid answers. A amazing night of entertainment that we hope to expand on next year. Thank you to Iron Horse Pub, John and Danny, for allowing us to host this great kick off for the weekend.

Memorabilia Trade Show and Meet & Greet Autograph Line at MPEC

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.
