“Mike has represented the Midwest and the wrestling world with class and honor by promoting the sport as a public speaker, an author of 21 books (14 about wrestling), the creation of a great wrestling museum, and his work has appeared in dozens of national and regional magazines.”

It is the fifth such “Lifetime Achievement” type award for Mike, the others being:

  • Cauliflower Alley Club (CAC) Art Abrams Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001;
