What is WWE?2 min read
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is the largest professional wrestling company in the world. They broadcast live matches on their two shows – Raw and SmackDown – as well as special events like WrestleMania, but also host non-televised house shows called Live Events which take place around the world, year round.
WWE is a mix of theatre, TV drama, sport, athleticism, brawl, stage combat, reality television, storytelling and a traveling circus. They are very similar to Hollywood movies and TV shows in terms of being scripted and fake, but also very real in the sense that it’s a live show that is actually happening.
They have a unique approach to storylines which means they can create realistic characters with different personalities and traits under one wrestling character. This means that they have wrestlers such as The Rock, Brock Lesnar, John Cena and Kane who are all very different from each other but can still play out the same storyline.
As a result, fans will have a good idea of the personality of each wrestler as they watch them.
This is very important as it can help the audience to relate to them and understand their actions better. Moreover, it can also make the storyline more interesting and exciting.
It’s not the first time that WWE has blended real-life incidents into their storylines. This has happened on many occasions, most famously with CM Punk’s famous Pipebomb promo where he referenced and vented out his real-life frustrations with the company on live television.
