WWE News

FanBuzz brings you the best of professional wrestling's WWE, including rumors, news, spoilers and results.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) was founded in 1952 when Vincent James McMahon purchased Capitol Wrestling Corporation Ltd. following the death of the previous owner, his father Jess McMahon. Jess worked as a successful boxing promoter prior to his work with the company. The organization currently hosts more than 500 global live events each year, including Wrestlemania. Following the tradition of other wrestling promoters, WWE events are promoted as competition but the plot-based entertainment events are not real athletic matches, although it does take a level of athleticism for the wrestlers to perform their moves.

The company, previously known as World Wrestling Federation Inc. and World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc., became known as WWE in 2011. WWE is comprised of several companies that focus on entertainment outside of wrestling matches. Flagship programs include Smackdown and Raw. Popular WWE wrestlers include John Cena, AJ Styles, and Charlotte. Wrestlers such as Ric Flair have been immortalized through references in music, television shows and films.
