Veteran pro wrestler Paul London will be inducted into the Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame 2023 Class.
GCW recently announced London as the sixth member of the second class of the Indie Hall. There’s no word yet on who will induct him.
London debuted back in 2000, and has worked for several promotions over the years – WWE, ROH, TNA/Impact, Zero1 in Japan, PWG, Lucha Underground, and numerous indies, where he continues to work every now and then. London announced in October 2022 that he was once again taking bookings after not wrestling regularly since 2018. London is a one-time former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, two-time former WWE Tag Team Champion, and a one-time former WWE World Tag Team Champion. Two of the three tag team reigns came with London’s longtime partner, Brian Kendrick.
