2008 DINNER BANQUET &

AWARDS CEREMONY

 

The 2008 Hall of Heroes Banquet and Induction Ceremony was filled with tradition, celebration, and great fun. The event was a huge success. Look for photos and reports here over the next weeks, and information regarding the 2009 Hall of Heroes event is coming soon.

Inductees for the Hall of Heroes Class of 2008 included "Number One" Paul Jones, "The Russian Bear," Ivan Koloff, Thunderbolt Patterson, "Freebird" Buddy Roberts, Sandy Scott, Grizzly Smith (known to many long time Mid-Atlantic fans as Tiny Anderson of the Kentuckians), and "The Dean of Professional Wrestling" Johnny Weaver. These legends were honored for their lifetime accomplishments at the second-annual Hall of Heroes dinner banquet and awards ceremony Friday night, August 15 during the NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Joining us that evening to induct the Class of 2008 were wrestling legends Jack Brisco, Don Kernodle, Michael Hayes, Jimmy Garvin, Magnum TA, and Hall of Heroes Class of 2007 members Ole Anderson, Bob Caudle, and Rip Hawk. The 2008 banquet and induction ceremony was hosted by Chris Cruise.
