Impact Pro Wrestling(IPW) is proud to work closely with the National Wrestling Hall of Fame-Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa.

Since, 2009, IPW has had the honor of producing/promoting the live professional wrestling event that coincides with the annual National Wrestling Hall of Fame: George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling museum induction ceremony.   

IPW Promoter Troy Peterson plays an important role in assisting the museum with organizational and logistical planning and execution each year of the convention in July that has grown in popularly and has become a "destination event" for professional wrestling fans across the county (and world).

"Impact Pro Wrestling is THE independent wrestling organization in the United States.

A quality organization with quality people.

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum is fortunate to work with this worthy organization."
