NYWC honors its past.
The New York Wrestling Connection has provided some of the top names to come out of the state of New York in present-day wrestling. Trent Berreta, Matt Cardona, Brian Myers, Tony Nese, John Silver, Alex Reynolds, and more have all come through the NYWC.
Now, the promotion has revealed that they have reflected on their history over the past two years and as such, they are inducting 3 acts into their own Hall of Fame.
The Hardcore Wrestling Alliance was the precursor to the New York Wrestling Connection and existed from 1999 to 2000. The promotion itself will be inducted to the 2020 Hall of Fame class.
Tony Nese, a current AEW wrestler and The Maximos, legends of the New York wrestling scene, will be inducted into the 2021 Hall of Fame class. The Maximos are best known for their time with Amazing Red in TNA Wrestling where they innovated a lot of high-flying offense that would be associated with the X-Division for years to come.
The ceremony will take place on 1/29 at NYWC Sideshow.
The past 2 years have given us time to reflect on those who have made NYWC what it is today. Join us January 29th at Sideshow where we welcome HWA, @TonyNese & The SAT (@RealJoelMaximo & Jose Maximo) into the 2020 and 2021 Hall of Fame Classes! pic.twitter.com/nXneAnSMOX— NYWC (@NYWCWRESTLING) January 3, 2022
