World Wrestling Entertainment

World Wrestling Entertainment (1979-present) In 1979, the WWWF became the WWF, and Vince purchased the Cape Cod Coliseum, where he had games of ice hockey and professional wrestling. In 1980, joined Titan Sports, Inc., would buy Capitol Wrestling Corporation from his father in 1982. Against the wishes of his father, McMahon began a national expansion process that would fundamentally change the business. In 1983, Vince already had complete control and ownership of WWF and its future direction, buying everything related to the former shareholders of its parent, including Gorilla Monsoon. As part of the deal, Vince Monsoon promised jobs for life, and that’s how Monsoon remained affiliated with the WWF until the day he died. Vince’s father died in 1984, leaving his son the responsibility for its legacy of professional wrestling.The first thing he did as full owner of the WWF was separated from the National Wrestling Alliance, as their vision of a new national wrestling promotion was incompatible with the old philosophy of the promotions. After Rocky III, Hulk Hogan‘s popularity began to expand and return to the brand new WWF Vince McMahon. Hogan won the WWF Championship on 23 January 1984 (just weeks after his return) and McMahon Hogan helped to engineer his immersion as the biggest star in the entertainment media, where Hogan was shown as a typical good American boy. McMahon did not stop there, in contrast, began inviting pop and rock stars like Alice Cooper and Cyndi Lauper to participate in the plots and stories from the WWF in what would become the “Rock n ‘Wrestling Connection (Connection Rock and Struggle).WWF’s popularity increased exponentially as MTV often showed wrestling in its programming to show the appearances of music stars and other celebrities in the world of wrestling. McMahon called the incorporation of professional wrestling as sports entertainment. As Hulk Hogan as a wrestler and McMahon as the promoter, the two worked together to bring the business of professional wrestling to places nobody had ever thought possible. Around the same time, McMahon “admitted” in public the secret behind the accuracy of professional wrestling: which is that the battles are predetermined, that movements are planned and tested, and that the wrestlers use characters created as Hollywood actors do (this was invented to get rid of paying the tax they have to pay contact sports in the USA).This broke the old taboo of wrestling, and produced much anger against McMahon by old fans, fighters and promoters, who already bore a grudge for his invasion of the NWA territories that had. Furthermore, the Champion of the NWA at that time, Harley Race was very clear verbally expressing their frustration against McMahon and the WWF, and when it is assumed that promoted a show in his hometown of Kansas City trying to burn a WWF ring . So surprise, Race joined the WWF just two years later and became “King” Harley Race. The culmination of the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection was the first WrestleMania event at Madison Square Garden in New York City. McMahon promoted the event around the country in open TV (technology Pay-Per-View had not yet been created), offering all the resources of his company in what would be recognized in the business world as a great success. It became an annual event held every March or April.McMahon, to continue the success of your event, launched another series of annual events including Survivor Series, which took place every day of thanksgiving in 1988 SummerSlam and Royal Rumble in 1989.
