Welcome to
Minnesota Wrestling Hall of Fame.

The mission of the Minnesota Wrestling Hall of Fame is to educate, encourage and motivate our communities to embrace the rich history Minnesota’s amateur and professional wrestling. We will accomplish our mission through online and in-person presentations as well through recognitions of individuals’ contribution to the sport of wrestling and our communities as a whole.

It is wonderful that the Governor has declared August as Minnesota Wrestling History Month. This is a shout out to Wrestler, Coach, Team, Club, support organization and all the families of wrestlers. Thank you for making the History of Minnesota Wrestling so great!

Fun Fact: Every Olympic Wrestler comes to our state to train for the Olympics!
