STILLWATER, Okla. – Following a complete redesign by USA Wrestling, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame relaunched its website – NWHOF.org - on May 9.

The collaboration between the Hall of Fame and USA Wrestling provides both entities the ability to utilize databases, videos, etc. The new website interacts with the kiosks at the Hall of Fame’s museums in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Waterloo, Iowa.

Redesigned National Wrestling Hall of Fame website

“We are grateful to USA Wrestling for creating our new website. USA Wrestling staff members Meredith Wilson and particularly David Mathews have spent numerous hours building the site and making our vision a reality.” said Lee Roy Smith, Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. “They did an amazing job of combining our three entities – National Wrestling Hall of Fame, National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum and State Chapters – into a website that is visually pleasing, user-friendly and informational.

“We are excited for our constituents to see our new website and experience all of the great new features as we continue to grow the online presence of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the Dan Gable Museum and our State Chapter program.”

One of the greatest improvements in the new website involves honorees, who now have more statistical information available and Hall of Fame induction videos, where available. While perusing honorees, visitors now have the ability to see all of their Hall of Fame awards as well as their statistics as a coach and athlete.

Visitors also have the ability to search for individuals to see honors that they have received from the Hall of Fame, the Dan Gable Museum and the State Chapter program. You can also see Dave Schultz and Tricia Saunders Excellence Award winners and NCAA championships and All-American honors, where applicable.

The redesigned “Champions Database” allows visitors to search for their favorite team, wrestler or season and see their college accomplishments and their Hall of Fame awards.

The website also features an improved merchandise experience, powered by Shopify, making it easier to order Hall of Fame clothing, posters, books and more.

National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum
America’s shrine to the sport of wrestling, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1976 to honor the sport of wrestling, preserve its history, recognize extraordinary individual achievements, and inspire future generations. The National Wrestling Hall of Fame has museums in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Waterloo, Iowa. The Stillwater, Oklahoma, location reopened in June 2016 following a $3.8 million renovation and now features interactive exhibits and electronic kiosks, as well as the opportunity to watch NCAA Championship matches from the 1930s to present day. It also has the John T. Vaughan Hall of Honors where the greatest names in wrestling are recognized, including iconic granite plaques presented to Distinguished Members since the Hall of Fame opened in 1976. The museum has the largest collection of wrestling artifacts and memorabilia in the world, including the most collegiate and Olympic wrestling uniforms. Wrestling truly is for everyone and the diversity and accessibility of the sport continues to be highlighted through exhibits featuring females, African-Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and Latino Americans. There is also a library featuring historical documents, including NCAA guides and results, as well as books on the sport. For more information about the Hall of Fame, please visit www.NWHOF.org.
