Tampa Bay Area – Home to Dozens of Pro-Wrestling Legends

Did you know the Tampa bay area has been home to some of the most famous wrestlers in the world? Hulk Hogan grew up in the Tampa area and continues to live here. Randy Savage’s father retired to Indian Rocks in 1985 and enticed his son to follow shortly thereafter. Then there is Cena, Batista, Sheamus, Jericho and The Edge who also have chosen the area to call home. In fact, among all the wrestlers and staff on the WWE listings, roughly a fifth live right here around Tampa and St. Petersburg!

Tampa became the hub for pro-wrestling back in the 1950s.

Championship Wrestling was based in Tampa at the time, and wrestling became highly popular. Though the venues were smaller, the crowds were intense. Passionate fans would flock to places like the old Fort Hesterly Armory to cheer on the good guy “baby-faces” and curse the bad guy “heels.” But even after the 1980s when WWF, and eventually WWE, took off, Tampa has remained a preferred destination for some of the most infamous professional wrestlers around.
