Heritage Awards

Wrestling Heritage
A hobby site created by enthusiasts of
British wrestling.
Celebrating wrestling and wrestlers 
from 1930 - 1988.

D'Orazio Award


A D'Orazio is awarded for having made a meaningful comment about the site in the Guest Book.


This is an award that everyone should have.


Unhappy with your original comment of years ago? 

Add a new one and request the removal of the original if you wish.

The Guest Book is a most important part of the site in a way Members may be unaware of. When we are in touch with external bodies such as the press, magazines and television producers, the Guest Book is consulted as an independent gauge of what informed wrestling fans think about the site's content, accuracy and quality.


D'Orazio owners are entitled to use the words "Wrestling Heritage D'Orazio Award Holder" in all correspondence, at the foot of their Talk Wrestling forum posts (use Edit profile) and in all Wrestling Heritage related matters.
