Wrestling may have evolved into something that’s more for entertainment than actual sport, but it’s still something you should learn to enjoy if you want to get the most out of your life. Wrestling has been around long before anyone knew what “sports” were, and knowing some background information on this ancient art will make you a more informed viewer.
What is World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)?
WWE is a company that produces wrestling shows. The company was established in 1952. It is based in Stamford, Connecticut. It competes with other wrestling companies such as TNA and Ring of Honor for market share over the TV rights over its programming. The company also organizes live wrestling shows at major venues where they compete live against other top wrestling brands.

How do wrestlers get paid?
The WWE pays wrestlers a salary in the form of a per diem on days they wrestle, per performance when they wrestle at a non-televised event, and per their annual contract for any televised or live events where they have been previously contracted to wrestle. For out-of-the-ring performers such as referees and commentators, the pay depends on what kind of deal has been negotiated with them in advance.
– When wrestling “on the road”, if one is not around for dinner (or lunch), there may be times when you can get paid for your appearance fee (pretty standard) cash advances by the week if you are not near any banks; these can range from $800-$2000.
