Join the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame for our second annual Induction Awards Dinner and Ceremony on August 27, 2022, at The Desmond Crown Plaza Hotel in Albany, NY. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 6:05 PM Eastern Time, which we call WTBS (Wrestlers Talkin' Before the Show) in honor of the traditional television start time for pro wrestling on the TBS network for many years.

The informal cocktail hour is followed by an elegant and intimate dinner with wrestlers, special guests, friends and fans. A banquet dinner is served to all guests as IPWHF executives and honored guests present awards, including the Rocky Johnson "Medal for Mettle" awarded to a champion of courage in the wrestling community, the IPWHF Trailblazer Award honoring those who broke boundaries in the business, and the Excelsior Award given to a non-wrestler who has helped to advance the pro wrestling industry.

As a dinner guest, you will also witness pro wrestling history as the IPWHF Class of 2022 is inducted into the Hall of Fame. Inductees will receive their Hall of Fame rings, which will be on display at the dinner, and we will unveil the bronze plaque of each legend to be installed in the IPWHF Hall of Fame exhibit at the MVP Arena in Albany.

This exclusive event will have limited capacity, so don't delay! Select your donation or sponsorship package below to receive your tickets!

About Sponsorship Opportunities

This is your chance to be part of the history of professional wrestling!
 

The Board of Trustees of the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame (IPWHF) are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have your name and/or business included in a hall of fame. 

 

By sponsoring the museum in 2022, the year that we first open to the public, your name could be permanently displayed in the hall of fame.

The IPWHF is located at the MVP Arena, 51 South Pearl Street, Albany, NY.

 

Why we need your sponsorship:

The International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame annual budget includes not only the operational costs for the facility, but also expenses for bronze plaques, rings for inductees, display cases, construction/renovation costs, materials and supplies, and travel costs for our inductees and honorees. The annual dinner and convention serves as our fundraising gala, though there are related costs with hosting these events.
 

The Board of Trustees of the IPWHF try to offer fans a fun and exciting time as they honor the men and women who competed in the squared-circle. In addition, we strive to help the underprivileged in a variety of methods, but rest assured all proceeds go to help those in need. In 2021, the IPWHF induction event hosted by JJ Dillon and Bill Apter was featured not only in pro wrestling publications, but many mainstream media sources gave significant coverage to our activities. Our events for 2022 will create pandemonium in the world of pro wrestling.

 

This is a rare opportunity for you to be a part of the battle royale! So here is your chance to tag-in, and help make our volunteer efforts successful for years to come. Did we mention we are all volunteers? Did we mention we are a registered 501c-3 not-for-profit organization? So what are you waiting for?

 

Don’t put Hard Times on the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame… Become a sponsor today!
