Impact Hall of Fame
The Impact Hall of Fame is a hall of fame that honors professional wrestlers and wrestling personalities, established and maintained by the U.S.-based national wrestling promotion Impact Wrestling. Introduced as the TNA Hall of Fame in 2012, it became known as the Impact Hall of Fame in 2017 after Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) rebranded as Impact Wrestling. Inductees are usually announced at either Slammiversary or on Impact! and the ceremony takes place prior to Bound for Glory, with a speech being delivered at Bound for Glory. However, in 2015, two were inducted into the Hall of Fame: Jeff Jarrett, who did not have a ceremony due to his actions with the company leading to a Lethal Lockdown match to depose him and his shares, while Earl Hebner was inducted at a live event.

It was officially established on the May 31, 2012 episode of then-TNA's flagship Impact Wrestling television program. As explained by TNA president Dixie Carter in the official press release, the Hall of Fame was created as part of the celebration of TNA's 10th anniversary, and as a way to honor those who contributed to TNA's history.
