The WWE is the largest professional wrestling promotion in the world. Encompassing the brands WWE: Raw, WWE: Smackdown, and WWE: NXT, over the years, WWE wrestling has become the premiere professional wrestling brand. Founded as a purely regional wrestling brand in 1952 by Roderick “Jess” McMahon and Joseph Mondt, it was based in the Northeast United States as part of the National Wrestling Alliance. Eventually, the company came under the control of Vincent J. McMahon, Jess’ son. The company split from the alliance in 1963 as a result of a dispute and was renamed the World Wide Wrestling Federation, and later the World Wrestling Federation. After buying the company from his father in 1980, Vincent K. McMahon aimed to make the brand nationally known, despite the tradition of a regional system. Throughout the years this has been done in several ways, via pay-per-view, video recordings, and most importantly, television.
The first television series, WWE: Raw, was created and first aired as WWF Monday Night Raw on January 11, 1993. It broke new ground in professional wrestling because it was filmed in front of a live audience who purchased WWE tickets, whereas other wrestling shows were often taped on sound stages and dubbed over.
The WWE is responsible for the famous WrestleMania, one of the most well known professional sporting events in the world. Produced annually since 1985, WrestleMania is the championship that brings together all the WWE brands in a final showdown. Typically, two wrestlers will match up to win the championship title, but during the 2000 Wrestlemania, Triple H, The Rock, The Big Show, and Mick Foley faced each other in a “fatal four-way elimination match.” The type of match is pre-determined and has ranged from a “no disqualification match” to a “steel cage match.” WrestleMania has made stars of many of its participants, including Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and The Rock. The championship has traditionally sold more WWE tickets than any other single wrestling event.
