National Wrestling Hall of Fame Year In Review

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum in Stillwater, Oklahoma takes a look back at 2015.

National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum

America’s shrine to the sport of wrestling, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1976 to honor the sport of wrestling, preserve its history, recognize extraordinary individual achievements, and inspire future generations. With museums in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Waterloo, Iowa, the Hall of Fame has the largest collection of wrestling artifacts and memorabilia in the world including the Hall of Honors in Stillwater, Oklahoma, where wrestling legends are enshrined at the national, regional and state level. The diversity of the sport is highlighted with exhibits featuring females and such ethnicities as African Americans, Native Americans, and Latino Americans. There is also a library featuring historical documents and books on the sport as well as a theater. The Hall of Fame is currently closed to visitors as it prepares to undergo an entire interior renovation. It is scheduled to re-open in the summer of 2016, just in time to celebrate its 40th anniversary at the annual Honors Weekend induction ceremonies.
