Dennis Hall (born February 5, 1971) is a Greco-Roman wrestler from Hartford, Wisconsin, United States. Hall was a 10-time US National Champion, a World Champion, and 3-time USA Olympian. He won a Silver Medal at the 1996 Atlanta.

Hall attended Hartford Union High School and began his career by defeating a two-time senior state champion in the state finals as a freshman. Hall finished his prep career with a 146-1-1 prep record including 110 pins, earning three individual Wisconsin state titles. During his high school years he was also a three-time Junior National Greco Champion and World Team member. He was Wisconsin's first Dream Team All-American.

Hall attended the University of Wisconsin–Madison on a full scholarship for one year. He realized that in order for him to reach his full potential as an international Greco wrestler he would need to train differently than he would for collegiate wrestling. He dropped out of school to train, travel and compete with the US Greco team. Hall was named USA Wrestling Man of the Year in 1995 as well as three time Greco-Roman athlete of the year in 1994, 1995 and 1996. Now retired from competitive wrestling, Hall lives in Plover, Wisconsin with his wife Chrissy, daughter Alyssa, 3 sons; Tyler, Brandon, and Jake.
