The mission of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame is to promote and strengthen the sport of wrestling in Massachusetts. We do this by preserving the history of Massachusetts wrestling, recognizing our excellence, and inspiring future generations to learn from our great sport.
As a state chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the Massachusetts Chapter carries forth the goals of our national organization by celebrating the excellence of wrestlers, coaches, officials, and other contributors to Massachusetts wrestling.
Deserving individuals are recognized through induction into the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame (MA-NWHOF), or through special awards bestowed upon them with the assistance of the MA-NWHOF.
Inductees are enshrined in the State Chapter Gallery of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Museum in Stillwater OK. In the museum, our inductees take their rightful place alongside other wrestling giants who have contributed to the sport of wrestling.
