Hall Of Fame

No Hall of Fame is perfect. Often voter politics, predilections and unfamiliarity can lead to head scratching inductions or omissions. In an effort to present the definitive pro wrestling Hall of Fame, we have compiled a list of inductees in eleven notable wrestling halls from around the world, and awarded each member a point, giving an overall total score out of ten. It goes without saying that the more points an industry great acquires, the higher they are on our overall list. There are nearly 500 names appearing in total, but we are only listing anyone who scored three points and above. So while HoW don’t actually award any points ourselves, we do have a criteria of sorts for inclusion. Anyone wanting to know the remaining names on the list can contact James Dixon at jamesdixonwriter@gmail.com

The Halls of Fame used vary greatly, and we feel between them they offer an all-encompassing view of the industry’s past. Some are still active today, whereas others are defunct. If you feel a worthy Hall of Fame is missing from our list, then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
