Charlotte, NC (May 15, 2008) – Besides great pro wrestling matches planned for the June 7th card, the National Wrestling Alliance® is pleased to announce a special attraction to the NWATM 60th Anniversary Philips Arena event; the induction of the 2008 Class of the NWATM Hall of Fame.


The NWATM started it’s “Hall” in 2005 in Nashville, TN inducting Lou Thesz, Harley Race, Sam Mushnich, Jim Barnett, Gordon Solie and Jim Cornette. The next Class was announced during a private gathering on October 13, 2006 in Las Vegas, NV that included Eddie Graham, Dory Funk, Jr., Lelani Kai, The Rock-n-Roll Express, Lance Russell and Saul Wringeroff.

The organization elected not to have a “Hall” induction in 2007 due to the planning and staging of larger arena events and the international expansion of the NWATM brand. In the coming weeks Officials will announce the names of the 2008 honoree’s. NWATM Hall of Famer James E. Cornette will host the ceremony.

The induction ceremony will be a part of the June 7, 2008 NWATM event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. Tickets are on sale at the Philips Arena Box Office, all TicketMaster locations and ticketmaster.com. For up to date NWATM news please visit nwawrestling.com.
