Massachusetts Chapter

Official State Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame

2023 Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Banquet

The Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame induction will be held at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Saturday, October 28th at 3:00 PM.

One of the things that makes this event so special each year is the gathering of members (past inductees and directors) to welcome the new class of honorees. The Massachusetts Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame will be honoring our Lifetime Service inductees Ron Brown, Steve Cherella, Wayne Griffin, Paul Murphy, Chris Pacelli and Joe Streadwick (Posthumous); as well as our Medal of Courage inductee Frank Ciavattone and our Outstanding American inductee Myron Allukian Jr. DDS MPH. We will also be recognizing the North Attleboro 1997 Division II State championship team.

Their achievements will be recognized by the prestigious National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum in Stillwater, Oklahoma with an official commemorative plaque, a National Hall of Fame jacket, a biographical poster board and a keepsake program booklet. Their names will be memorialized with the other inductees on the National Wall of Honor. Even more poignant will be the priceless memories forged when you and your friends experience this special tribute with these outstanding inductees.

The banquet and ceremonies will be held in one of Gillette Stadium’s function halls and will feature a plated dinner and, of course, the induction of these outstanding individuals.

The ceremonies will be officiated by Sean Harrington. The event promises to be a fun night of celebrating and reminiscing that will honor these individuals and provide memories of their great accomplishments.
