Missouri Wrestling Revival was on hand for the final two inductions into the 2015 St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame in East Carondelet, Illinois at SICW on October 17th. Earlier this summer at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club wrestlers Ken Patera and Joe Tangaro were inducted and the final honorees wrestling journalist Bill Apter and Wrestling at the Chase referee Ed Smith were entered into the Hall.

Fans were thrilled to meet Bill Apter prior to the event to meet him and purchased his new book “Is Wrestling Fixed? I Didn’t Know It Was Broken: From Photo Shoots and Sensational Stories to the WWE Network, Bill Apter’s Incredible Pro Wrestling Journey “.

Though Ed Smith is no longer with us, his memory is very much alive as many family members were in attendance including his son and former wrestler Keith Smith, and grandson and 3rd generation wrestler Keith Smith Jr.

Congratulations to all of those that were honored in 2015.
