Tennessee Chapter Of The National Wrestling Hall Of Fame

Quick Jump Board Of Directors HOF Inductees
The Tennessee Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame was formed in 1993. That year they had 5 inductees: Gordon Connell, John Farr, Jim Morgan, G.P. West and Luke Worsham. The next time that they had an Induction Banquet was in 2005. They have had an Induction Banquet every year since then. This is one way that the National Wrestling Hall of Fame raises money. They have chapter in most states. All of the TNWHOF Members have a plaque under our state in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
The TNWHOF mission is to Honor Individuals that have served the Great Sport of Wrestling in the State of Tennessee. To qualify, you must have had at least 20 years of service to the Sport of Wrestling. The TNWHOF Banquet rotates around the state between Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville. They may be honoring you next year in Chattanooga.
