WWE Shows Deliver Thrills and Excitement

The WWE brings their unique brand of sports entertainment to venues across the world, and 2013 looks to be an exciting year for wrestling fans. WWE Champion CM Punk, World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show, and Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett promise to take on all comers when defending their titles, and there are no shortage of contenders on the roster of performers in The WWE.

The WWE began back in the 1950s when Roderick James “Jess” McMahon and Joseph Mondt started the Capitol Wrestling Corporation and began promoting wrestling matches in New York City, at Madison Square Garden. However, Jess died in 1954, and one of Mondt’s business associates brought in Vincent J. McMahon to fill his position in the company.

By the 1960s, the CWC had become the World Wide Wrestling Federation and featured such historic wrestlers as “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers and Lou Thez, considered one of the greatest wrestlers in history. Other early stars from this era included Lou Albano, who would later become one of the most well-known figures in pro wrestling, and “Superstar” Billy Graham, the influence of wrestlers like Hulk Hogan and Jesse “The Body” Ventura.

The Beginning of the WWE

The WWE officially got underway in 1980 when Vincent K. McMahon, the current CEO of the WWE, and his father started Titan Sports. Vince later purchased his father’s shares and the shares of other stockholders and began pushing the WWE – then known as the WWF – across the country and on national television. Vince also began selling videos of his matches, an unheard of practice at the time.

From there the WWE continued to grow, becoming the top promotion for wrestling in the country and bringing hundreds of shows to fans on a yearly basis. From their colorful past to their meteoric rise to the top of the wrestling game, the WWE has something to offer every wrestling fan, and the best way to experience it first hand is to buy tickets for one of the live shows near you in 2013. If you want action, excitement and fun, you’ll be mightily entertained.
