The Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame ("WON HOF" for short) is a professional wrestling hall of fame that exists only on paper.

The WON began in 1996, when Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer chose a large class of initial "inductees". Unlike other forms of sports such as baseball and basketball, professional wrestling did not at that time have a Hall of Fame voted on by a panel of experts who are independent of any of the sport's governing organizations. The WON HOF was intended to fill this need.

Since 1996, the newsletter, regarded as the premier source of "inside" wrestling information, has inducted a new class of inductees yearly, based on a poll of insiders and pro wrestlers chosen by Meltzer. The mechanism of the voting is designed to ensure that wrestling personalities from the United States, Japan, Mexico, and elsewhere will all receive fair representation.
