The majority of the WWE's business enterprise is still wrestling. No matter how Vince wants to spin it.

You know it seems to me when Vince changed the name from World Wrestling Federation (which i know he had to with the whole WWF thing) to World Wrestling Entertainment, that's when things started going down hill for WWE. I truly believe especially in the States Vince is hurting the wrestling business in a bad way. At one time wrestling was respected, not so much now days.































Great article, thanks for sharing!

Yes, whether he likes it or not it's a Wrestling Company. hense World WRESTLING Entertainment. Majority of people watch it for Wrestling!!! not for their crappy movies/comics etc.































Its definatly a Wrestling Company because the WRESTLERS On their WRESTLE hense World Wrestling































Wake up Vince, you annoying fk-tard your WRESTLERS arent Superstars. You own a WRESTLING company whether you like to admitt it or not.

WWE is full of crap. What does the second W in WWE stand for? Wrestling. Not great wrestling, but wrestling never the less.

Why would I be shocked, the wrestling quality in WWE is mediocre now a days anyway.

The thing that confused me the most was where it said we don't do wrestling events, they're entertainments.































i do know and have read/seen as of late this insistence of calling them superstars and Divas, and not wrestlers, but that's like, a slap in the face to these folks in my opinion. So what do you call the matches they put on? A superstar or Divas match (which they do call it now)? An entertainments match? So these folks don't wrestle? Then what are we supposed to call what they do? Of course they entertain us, but i wouldn't call their matches entertainment, i would call them wrestling matches. By calling it entertainment, i feel like it's making a mockery of every single *wrestler* in the WWE (and i use the term wrestler towards both the men and women). Though i do find the matches to be entertaining, my definition of entertaining is much different than the way the WWE defines it. i more so find the matches to be intense. They always keep me off the edge of my seat. They keep the audience interactive, but they are performing legitimate wrestling moves. What are we supposed to call that then? They put on an entertainments move? What a great entertainments hold that was? It makes no sense.































Granted, the WWE *has* been focusing more on the entertainment as of late, but you can't not call what we see wrestling; you can't call it entertainments. Is Vince really going to make the WWE a joke? / is that what he's trying to do? Is he trying to degrade every single current and past wrestler in the WWE / WWF / WWWF? Is he really trying to make his company out to sound like it's nothing? It's meaningless? Does he not take any pride in what his father created and built? Is he trying to run the company into the ground? If he's going to go about saying what he now is about his company, then i'm really scared of seeing where the company is going to go in the next few years.































None of it makes sense though in my opinion. It is wrestling. It always has been, it always will be. The day it's only called entertainment is the day the WWE dies. If they plan on simply calling it entertainment, then all we'll see are stupid dance offs and sing offs and guest hosts hogging the spotlight the entire night of Raw and segments and vignettes that take up an entire episode of Raw or SmackDown, just extending all the stupid stuff for an entire night of Raw or SD. Is that what Vince is planning on doing?

Wrestling entertainment. This is how I refer to the WWE and other pro-wrestling companies.

Funny. Every time I call WWE out about not being a wrestling company and being a sports entertainment company that doesn't care about wrestling, a**hole users thumbs down me. It is nice to see that at least Vince McMahon would give me a thumbs up.































(I've answered this same question 3 times now so that is a copy of one).
