20 Mind-Blowing Facts About WWE

Exploring the history of Vince McMahon's empire.

World Wrestling Entertainment is more than just a pro wrestling show. It is Vince McMahon's corporate empire which sells everything from toy figurines to blockbuster movies. Company assets run into the hundreds of millions and the big spending business has multiple TV shows and live events each and every week. When it comes down to it, the minutes of wrestling are just a small part of an overall interactive entertainment experience. Stars like John Cena spend as much time at media press conferences and sponsor events than they do inside wrestling rings. Regardless, for most WWE fans, it is still all about the pro wrestling when it comes down to it. When two pro wrestlers go in the ring, and put on a meaningful and athletic match, it is one of the most exciting spectaculars in all of entertainment. It is pretty mind blowing in itself that this huge media corporation has grown up around men performing in fight sequences. It's even more mind blowing when you consider that pro wrestling became even more popular when it was outed as "fake" in the 1980's. Indeed, pro wrestling is crammed full of mind blowing facts. Historically and currently, there are a whole range of mind blowing facts that WWE fans simply need to know about.
