Whether you grew up watching Hulk Hogan battle it out against Macho Man Randy Savage or you’re a fan of the more recent professional wrestling stars like Brock Lesnar and The Miz, tickets for WWE events guarantee terrific athleticism combined with showmanship and smacktalk. World Wrestling Entertainment has a long history of providing fans of all ages a reason to stand up and cheer. With Royal Rumbles, SmackDowns, and SummerSlams—not to mention Road to Wrestlemania—there are no shortage of WWE events coming to a city near you.
You can trace the origins of WWE back to 1952 when Vince McMahon’s father Roderick founded Capitol Wrestling Corporation or CWC—the first of many acronymical names for the wrestling league. After changing its name from WWWF to the simplified WWF in 1979, professional wrestling began its rise to become one of the world’s most popular sports. The 1980s saw Hulk Hogan take on all fighters at events like Wrestlemania III, where he grappled with the legendary Andre the Giant. That event set an attendance record with 93,173 roaring fans, the highest of any live indoor event in North America at the time. Stars like Rowdy Roddy Piper, Jake the Snake, and Ric Flair helped cement wrestling in the national consciousness. The ‘90s and 2000s saw more thrilling matches and name changes, finally settling on WWE.
The world of wrestling has never been more exciting thanks to a reimagining of what the sport can be. Now featuring women like Asuka and Nikki Bella, the ring has never been more thrilling. Baron Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Roman Reigns are just a few of the names who are delighting fans across the country. WWE tickets are very popular and sell out quickly, so pick one up now before they’re all gone.Back to top
