A brief introduction to WWE


WWE or World Wrestling Entertainment is a promotion that is known worldwide for its professional wrestling events, with Vince McMahon as the Chairman and CEO. The company’s headquarters are located in Stamford, Connecticut and there are offices across the world as well. WWE is telecast in over 150 countries across the world, and the promotion also conducts on-ground Live Events, including tapings for all its brands.


WWE History


A journey through time


The history of WWE begins with the Capitol Wrestling Corporation Ltd. promotion called the CWC. It was set up by Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt. Later, Vincent James McMahon, father of Vincent Kennedy McMahon would be brought into the fray and the WWWF would be formed. In 1979, the WWWF would become the WWF or the World Wrestling Federation.


Vince McMahon would purchase the company from his father in 1982, and turn what was a local business into a nationwide phenomenon, with syndicated deals across the United States. He would end the territory system and spurred by the success of his mega-star Hulk Hogan, Vince McMahon would make wrestling something that the world could enjoy.


WrestleMania


WrestleMania is the biggest pro-wrestling spectacle in the world. It’s an annual WWE pay-per-view event, which first started in 1985, at the Madison Square Garden arena. WrestleMania I and II were successful, but it was WrestleMania III where 93,173 filled the Silver Dome, where Hulk Hogan slammed Andre the Giant to the mat, that made the event a major global phenomenon.


This would be a record until WrestleMania 32, where Roman Reigns defeated Triple H to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. There have been many notable WrestleMania moments in history, and along with The Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam, WWE WrestleMania is considered

to be one of the Big 4 pay-per-views, the biggest of the lot.


WWE RAW and WWE SmackDown Live


WWE runs a whole bunch of weekly shows, and the two flagship shows on that list are WWE RAW and WWE SmackDown Live. WWE RAW, also known as the red brand, began on January 11, 1993, and the show has been a regular fixture of Monday nights, serving sports entertainment action to WWE fans. SmackDown began in 1999, and is popularly referred to as ‘the blue brand’.
