Vince J. McMahon had started promoting wrestling in 1935, at age 20, through an office set up by his father on Long Island. In 1942, during World War II, he was drafted. His service was in the Coast Guard, remaining at the Wilmington, North Carolina, base until 1945.

After the war, McMahon moved to Washington, DC to form a fit company, because Toots Mondt controlled New York. In 1952 he bought the Turner Arena from promoter Joe Turner's widow, renaming it Capitol Arena.

Your first event as capitol wrestling corporation (the name is due to Capitol, which is in Washington DC) was held on 7 1953 January.

Jess McMahon passed away on November 22, 1954, at the age of 74. Vince got the Dumont network to broadcast the Capitol Arena events. The first episode aired on January 5, 1956.

For the summer of that year, a Dumont affiliate in New York began broadcasting the Capitol struggles, and fans began to get acquainted with its stars, especially Antonino Rocca.

Taking advantage of the fact that Toots Mondt's license as a promoter was suspended for six months, McMahon was able to rent Madison Square Garden to host his first event on November 26, 1956.

McMahon started a war with the promoters in the area, who numbered more than 20, managing to put them out of business by 1960, which was when Toots Mondt gave up and teamed up with him.

In 1963, Capitol didn't acknowledge a Lou Thesz win over Buddy Rogers, who took away the NWA World Heavyweight Championship on January 24 in Toronto. Rogers returned to New York and was announced as World Wide Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Champion (WWWF).

Although those initials were fictitious, for August of that year, Capitol separated from the NWA and formed the WWWF as an entity to recognize its titles.

Before long, McMahon he was the most powerful promoter in the United States.

Toots Mondt retired in 1969, selling his shares to McMahon, who divided them between his partner Phil Zacko and wrestlers Gorilla Monsoon and Arnold Skaaland. Although he continued to use the acronym WWWF, McMahon rejoined the NWA during the 1971 convention, held in Mexico.

Meanwhile Vince K. McMahon, son of the promoter, went to work at Capitol as an announcer and commentator, but also promoted events.

The WWWF acronym changed in 1979 to WWF: World Wrestling Federation.

On February 21, 1980, McMahon Jr. founded the Titan Sports company.

McMahon Sr. retired in 1982. The plan was for Gorilla Monsoon to stay at the helm of the company, but McMahon Jr. offered to buy them from him. Thus, Capitol disappeared, and the WWF became part of Titan Sports.

McMahon wanted to expand. He bought the territory of Southern California (Los Angeles and San Diego) from Gene LeBell, and he bought the Atlanta territory from Jim Barnett. In August 1983, he separated from the NWA.

On December 27 of that year, Hulk Hogan reappeared in the company (he had been with the AWA after McMahon Sr. fired him for acting without permission in the movie Rocky III). On January 23, 1984, Hogan won the WWF World Heavyweight Championship by defeating the Iron Sheik at Madison Square Garden.

Vince McMahon Sr. passed away on May 27, 1984 at age 68, cancer victim.

His son continued to expand WWF thanks to Hogan's popularity and the concept of Rock'N'Wrestling Connection. The rest of the decade virtually wiped out the territory system, which had been the standard of America's struggle since the late XNUMXs.

In the 90s WWF almost disappeared due to competition with WCW, but managed to emerge victorious.

On May 6, 1998, Titan Sports was renamed World Wrestling Federation Inc. To capitalize, on October 19, 1999, it became a public company, beginning to be listed on the stock exchange.

After losing a lawsuit from the World Wildlife Fund, The company changed its name to World Wrestling Entertainment on May 5, 2002.
