Each year, the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame honours someone for their contributions to professional wrestling journalism. For 2014, the chosen one is author Larry Matysik of St. Louis — though health issues are preventing him from attending the ceremony.

The Melby Award is just one of the presentations made by the Tragos/Thesz Hall, a part of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. Other names being recognized at banquet on Saturday, July 19th are Scott and Rick Steiner, Wilbur Snyder. Diamond Dallas Page will get the Frank Gotch Award and Larry Hennig receives the Lou Thesz Award. As well, the George Tragos Award will be presented to retired MMA great — and now movie star — Randy Couture. Jim Ross will host the event.
