An outsider one would think of WWE as just wrestling for titles, some extreme in-ring action and some exciting microphone action. Only a WWE fan would know why this thing is so amazing and what happens here. One of the best things that happen in WWE apart from WrestleMania is the social service this company does.
It contributes a lot to the society by several initiatives; talk about contributions to the “Make a Wish” foundation or their beautiful tie-up with Susan G Komen to fight breast cancer. These two, among many others, were famous because of the success they have produced over years and their continuity year after year.
These initiatives have been successful in touching lives from various strata of the population, and they prove that the company cares for the society.
As part of this slideshow, let us have a look at 5 such initiatives that WWE does for the society:
#1 'Talent Scholarships'
WWE has been blamed multiple times for ruthlessly managing their talent. Claims of not giving proper medical support to superstars, being asked to work despite injuries and not delivering on the contract promises are a few of them. This is not it. There is this other half of the story that often goes untold.
Every year, WWE provides $5000 for former talents under the "Talent Scholarship Programme". The superstars could use this amount to complete a college degree or do a certificate course from an accredited university.
Three superstars will be nominated under this programme every year. Last year, it was awarded to former WWE superstar Paul Burchill, WWE diva, Maria and a talent from the developmental territory, Michael Thompson.
