The Wrestling Classic is presented by UPMC Health System, UPMC Health Plan, and Rubbermaid and supported by other corporate sponsors. This all-star event, produced by a local committee of volunteers and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Dapper Dan Charities, is in its 29th year. The committee is co-directed by two former Wrestling Classic competitors, Kraig Nellis and Frank Vulcano, Jr.

The proceeds from the Wrestling Classic support a wrestling program for under privileged children through the Dapper Dan Youth Sports Leagues at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania.
