The 'E' stands for 'Entertainment'.

It was the WWF (World Wrestling Federation), but corporate buyouts changed that. That era is known as the 'attitude era' due to the Monday Night Wars between two different companies (WWF and WCW or World Championship Wrestling). In the end, WCW folded and merged with the WWF, making it the WWE.
IIRC, the World Wildlife Fund sued to get them to quit using the WWF. REALLY?!? The Venn diagram of those two clientele would look like a Marty Feldman's eyes.


And this has been floating around Reddit a lot lately:

nineteen ninety eight when the Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16ft through an announcer's table

I remember both. I also remember in 1996 when Undertaker ripped through the ring canvas to grab Kevin Nash. I was babysitting my niece at the time and she was 4. After she saw that, she always checked under her bed before going to bed at night to make sure the Undertaker wasn't there. Lol

One time I went to see a small Wrestling show. It did not have the production value of the WWF or WWE. But it was not too bad. Those guys work hard fro their money!
Of course it is staged but you have to appreciate the athletics it takes to put on a show like that.
I am sure those guys spend the night with beer, pain killers and ice packs.

A week and a half later, Undertaker made his retirement official on his Twitter page, saying "May my legacy Rest In Peace".

The manner in which he retired was a carbon copy of how Shawn Michaels (HBK) retired. HBK had a match with Undertaker at WM 25, and nearly won. He wanted a rematch at WM 26, but Undertaker refused. So, HBK periodically attacked Undertaker, costing Undertaker the WHC at Summer Slam. Undertaker finally accepted HBK's rematch at under a stipulation that HBK must retire if he lost. HBK ended up loosing the match, but Undertaker gained so much respect for HBK that he broke character to help him up and hug him. Undertaker wanted the same for his retirement, and he picked Roman Reigns because Undertaker has always been loyal to Vince and Vince loves Reigns.

My favorite Undertaker moment hands down is his WM27 entrance. I forgot his name, but there was a rapper that ripped Undertakers theme music for one of his songs, and the WWE sued the rapper. The case was still active when WM27 came around, so Undertaker got his revenge on the rapper by using a Katy Perry song for his entrance (the rapper was friends with Perry).

I went to a local wrestling show once too.

All American Wrestling.

It was hilarious. Actually made me want to be a heel.

Another funny Undertaker moment from the attitude era when Undertaker had his biker gimmick. After Raw ended, Booker T, The Rock, Golddust, Triple H and a few others tried to get Undertaker to do a dance. If you have the time to spare, this video is hilarious.

Years ago I used to watch wrestling and roller derby skates....Until friend of mine took me to a live wrestling match....That was the ruination of wrestling for me....never watched it after that.
Last year during the WWE's authority gimmick, Seth Rollins curb stomped Dean Ambrose's head through cinder blocks.

We all know this was staged to give Ambrose time off

Off camera Triple H broke character to tell a crying 6 year old girl that they were acting. The adult the girl was with is a Facebook friend of mine.

Who the **** would take a six year old girl to a wrestling show, anyway? The adult who was with her should be ....spoken to very sternly.
