About wrestling

WWE is an American
publicly traded, privately
controlled entertainment
company dealing primarily
in professional wrestling,
with major revenue
sources also coming from
film, music, product
licensing, and direct
product sales. It is
currently the largest
professional wrestling
in the world, reaching 13
million viewers in the U.S.
and broadcasting its
shows in 30 languages to
more than 145 countries. It promotes under
two brands, known as Raw
and SmackDown.
Vince McMahon is the
majority owner, chairman
and chief executive officer
(CEO) of the company.
Together with his wife
Linda McMahon, and their
children Shane McMahon
and Stephanie McMahon-
(WWE Executive Vice
President of Talent and
Creative Writing), the
McMahons hold
approximately 70% of
WWE's economic interest
and 96% of the voting
power in the company.
The company's
headquarters are located
in Stamford, Connecticut
with offices in New York
City, Los Angeles, London,
Shanghai, Tokyo,
Singapore, and Mumbai.
WWE holds an extensive
library of videos,
representing a significant
portion of the visual
history of professional
wrestling. The company
began as the Capitol
Wrestling Corporation in
1952, which promoted
under the banner of the
World Wide Wrestling
Federation (WWWF) and
later the World Wrestling
Federation (WWF). In
1982, it was sold to the
same family's Titan Sports
company, which later
changed its name to
World Wrestling
Federation Entertainment,
before finally becoming
World Wrestling
Entertainment in 2002, and
simplified to WWE in 2011.
