History, Tradition, Respect, core values that represent the National Wrestling Alliance which celebrates it’s 70th anniversary this year. The NWA was formed in Waterloo Iowa some seventy years ago, so its only fitting that the home of The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum be located there. The museum provides a look at the sport of wrestling at all levels.
The Hall will honor the career of “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce this summer during the Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame Weekend. Matt Limestone created a display that honors the five time former champion with the hallmarks of Pearce’s career; one shoulder wrestling singlet, the robe, and an autographed photo taken at a Metro Pro Wrestling show at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City during one of his title defense.
“I cannot really put into words how honored I am that these items are on display at the museum,” said Pearce. “It means a great deal to me and my family, and I am appreciative of the recognition.”
