We all enjoy the power packed hours the WWE offers each Monday and Friday nights. Though many of us might know where the company comes from and the great amount of dedication the McMahon family had placed in this organization.
The WWE has been called many things over the years and gone through many generations of McMahon’s Starting with Roderick James “Jess” McMahon a.k.a Jess McMahon. The loving Grandfather of Vincent K. McMahon first started as a promoter and decided to tackle the world of wrestling in the late 1920’s to early 1930’s.
There were many things about that era that were unclear however we know that the organization was started as CWC or Capitol Wrestling Corporation. In the 1950’s the CWC joined NWA and the torch was pasted to Vincent McMahon Sr by Ray Fabiani. They were such a great team that in 1956 Channel 5 aired the shows live getting them out of backyards.
The McMahon family continued to go as Vincent Sr. started to mold young Vincent Jr. into a formidable wrestling guru per say. Showing him the ropes and teaching him what he knows so he could take over his place in the wrestling biz.
In 1985 the first Wrestle Mania would bring great concern. Many believed that Vincent K. McMahon had taken too many risks. Although he felt his concept would be great and at the tell all Wrestle Mania Vince showed the world what Sports Entertainment was all about.
In 2002 WWF became the WWE pending a long journey with the World Wildlife Federation for the trademark.
The New Name? World Wrestling Entertainment…..
