Default Who is the founder of the WWE?

I know that Linda McMahon is running for the Senate. A lot of newspapers have made quotes of her being the founder of the WWE. It has been stated in newspapers that she gave up her position as the CEO in order to run for senate. I thought Vince McMahon's father was the founder of the WWE.

I always thought McMahon Sr. was the founder of WWF, and Vince Jr. created WWE. Even though they are one and the same, Vince technically turned his father's idea into Entertainment.

Jess McMahon founded Capital Wrestling...when Vince Sr. took over, it became World Wide Wrestling Federation, then the Vince McMahon that we all know and love (and/or hate) took over, and shortened in to World Wrestling Federation and turned it into the global giant we have now. You can thank the World Wildlife Fund for forcing the change from WWF to WWE.































Vince is Chairman, Linda was CEO (i've read various reports stating that Shane took over as CEO, but I can't confirm that.)

Linda was the ceo of the wwe and Vince is the chairman and now the ceo.















but to answer you question Vince is the founder of the wwe/wwf it was Vince who decided to make wrestling entertainment instead more as a sport.















Vince sr got cwc from his father and turned it into wwwf vince jr got wwwf from his father and turned it into the wwe and that were the wwe did originate from but in all aspects Vince did create the wwe
