e·h·w·Stock post message.svg To-do:
  • Keep "Company history" section as a brief overview of the History article.
  • Merge or expand short one-paragraph subsections under the "World Wrestling Federation" section.
  • Shorten introduction.
  • Improve references.
  • Remove "It is currently the largest professional wrestling promotion in the world," because such information is not true, and that is not a neutral point of view!
  • Reword, reword, reword! Everything is so hard to read and comprehend!

Please do not add back the picture of the WWE world headquarters. It is not necessary. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thatwweguy 619 (talkcontribs) 21:29, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Complex article[edit]

I find this article by Complex (magazine) to be very interesting, especially paragraphs 5 - 8. From "There is no fandom" to " if it were a "real" sport." Could the information in there fit in this article? @LM2000: @Gloss:@InedibleHulk:@HHH Pedrigree: starship.paint ~ ¡Olé! 09:49, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Any info in particular? Definitely can't fit it all in. InedibleHulk (talk) 18:45, February 1, 2015 (UTC)
A small bit about the fandom may not be a bad idea as we are an unusual bunch.LM2000 (talk) 18:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
We're starting to blend in with the MMA marktards, as UFC takes the basic tricks WWE isn't using anymore (per Jim Cornette). CM Punk goes that way, Chael Sonnen comes this way. Lesnar rules everything. But they've still got a while to go before they can claim to have the craziest crowds. WWE has had a few generations to mess with little kids' mushy brains. That really helps breed loyalty. I'm still rooting for Mantaur!
But yeah, sum something up in a few sentences. It'll probably be fine. InedibleHulk (talk) 06:54, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Matthew Brumfield is the best[edit]

Ever Since the night after WrestleMania 31, WWE has tried to make it's program a little bit more of a teenagers show with them cussing. The reason they are doing this is because WWE has sucked as long as I can remember. They started to suck the second after Shawn Michaels left the company. P.S. Paul "Triple H" Levesque you need to have HBK come back. By the way, Chris Benoit is alive. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.14.166.83 (talk) 23:48, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Ambiguity in Top Summary[edit]

@Oknazevad:: I disagree with your revert of my edit. To recap, the sentence says

The WWE also refers to the professional wrestling promotion itself, founded by Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt in 1952 as Capitol Wrestling Corporation, and as of 2014, the largest in the world, holding approximately 320 televised and non-televised events a year, and broadcasting to about 36 million viewers in more than 150 countries.

Maybe to you the sentence seems perfectly clear, but to me it still seems ambiguous. Of what is it the largest? Is it the largest company in the world? The largest company in the world? The largest media company in the world? The largest wrestling-focused company in the world? Maybe this is common knowledge to you or certain other people, but to people like me, who have virtually no knowledge of the wrestling world, this is an ambiguous phrase.

Or is there something here I'm missing, perhaps?

The largest professional wresting promotion, which is the subject of the sentence. That said, looking at it, it is a run on sentence, so it should be rephrased either way. I'll take a stab at it. oknazevad (talk) 22:29, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Oops, I didn't see your posting here until now. Sorry, for some reason, Wikipedia hasn't been alerting me of edits for the past month or so... I'm unsure why.

Anyway, yeah, thanks, okie dokes. SarahTehCat (talk) 17:35, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
