WWE

  • WWE stands for World Wrestling Entertainmen though Elias will tell you it means 'Walk With Elias' and is run by Vince McMahon Jr. The company has a history going back to the 1950s when run by McMahons' father, Vince McMahon Snr. Over the years the company has had several names including the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Problems with the World Wildlife Fund led to the company adapting its current title.
  • The company has been running shows at the world famous Madison Square Gardens for decades but has not always been running shows all over the States as they do now. At one time professional wrestling in the USA was run by the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and comprised of a number of wrestling companies in each area of the states. These were known as territories and it was agreed that they wouldn't run shows in other companies areas.
  • When Vince McMahon Jr took over he changed all that and began running shows around the country. He took many of the top wrestlers from other companies driving them out of business. In the 1980s the company began holding PPV events such as WrestleMania, Summerslam and the Survivor Series, events that continue to this very day. 
  • A whole host of celebrities have been part of WWE in the past. That even includes President Trump who at one time 'owned' Raw, staged WrestleMania at his hotel and was even part of a Hair v Hair match against Mr McMahon at WrestleMania. 

There have been rivals to McMahon's empire and at one time in the 1990s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) was getting more viewers as both had major shows on Monday evenings. WCW faded and were eventually purchased by WWE.

TV Shows

Now WWE hold shows all over the world with Monday Night Raw being a live three hour show every Monday and now Smackdown is televised live every week of the year. With Smackdown going live there's been a brand split in the company. Raw is now run by Stephanie McMahon with Kurt Angle as General Manager. In charge of Smackdown is Shane McMahon with Paige as his General Manager.

Smackdown is currently shown live on Tuesday evenings but after a new TV deal worth a billion dollars, the show will be moving to Fox and is expected to move to Friday's.

WWE reintroduced their cruiserweight division with plenty of high flying action. They now have their own weekly TV show called 205 Live, the '205' being the weight in lbs that the cruiserweight division has. Current champion is Cedric Alexander.

2018 saw WWE introduce NXT:UK which is based in the UK using mainly British wrestlers. It's shown weekly on the WWE Network. The network also offers access to exclusive programs and a massive library of past events.

British and Irish Wrestlers

Sheamus - The Celtic Warrior is easily one of the most decorated performers in the industry today. He has won the Royal Rumble, the King of the Ring and the Money in the Bank match, and only Hall of Famer Edge can match that feat. He is a four-time world champion and has recently had a tag team title run with Cesaro under the name 'The Bar' before losing the belts to Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins at Summerslam and lost the rematch at 'No Mercy'.  Lost the belts at WrestleMania and moved to Smackdown. The Bar recently lost in the Smackdown number one contenders tournament and didn't take part in a match at Summerslam. They regained the titles on the October 16th edition of Smackdown beating The New Day after interference by The Big Show. They lost the titles to The Miz and Shame McMahon at the 2019 Royal Rumble.

Becky Lynch - The Irish Lass Kicker was SmackDown Live's first ever woman's champion and at the recent Hell in a Cell PPV regained that title beating Charlotte Flair. Lynch turned heel on her best friend after losing a recent title match at Summerslam and pinned Flair to again beome champion. She retained her title at Evoluton beating Charlotte in a Last Woman Standing match and was set to take on Ronda Rousey at the Survivor Series before being injured on the November 12 edition of Raw during a Smackdown invasion. Lynch lost her title to Asuka at TLC and lost her rematch at the Royal Rumble. Later on the show, Lynch won the Women's Royal Rumble and headlined WrestleMania where she became both Raw and Smackdown Women's Champion.

Finn Balor - The Demon was a huge deal before he ever made his way to a WWE ring. After making his name in Ireland and then Great Britain he had great sucess in Japan as a member of the Bullet Club - probably the biggest stable since the NWO back in the 1990s - he came to NXT and was one of the most successful champions in the developmental brand's short history. He then moved up to the main roster and was the first-ever WWE Universal champion at SummerSlam 2016, but he had to relinquish the title the next night after suffering a shoulder injury. After a win on Monday January 14, he clinched a shot at Brock Lesnar's Universal title at the Royal Rumble. He lost the match but won the Intercontinental title at the Elimination Chamber PPV. He lost the title in March but as The Demon King, regained the title at WrestleMania 35.

Noam Darr - The Scottish cruiserweight (born in Israel) made his debut on Raw television when they visited Scotland at the tail end of 2016 to a big pop from his home fans. He has become a regular on the WWE show '205 Live' which is dedicated to cruiserweights. He managed to get Alicia Fox as his girlfriend before turning on her. He has just returned from injury and became number one challenger to the UK title but was unable to defeat Pete Dunne.

Gentleman Jack Gallagher - Gentleman Jack Gallacher is more of a comedy character above anything else, but in his current feud with The Brian Kendrick he's been showing a more agressive side to his character. We previously speculated that it wouldn't be too long before he turned heel and that's just what he did in Setpember and now teams with his former enemy The Brian Kendrick. A film about his career has  been released.

Paige - The anti-Diva, who has since started appearing on the Total Divas reality TV show, made a blistering impact in the early stages of her main roster career, but a string of controversies has seen her stock dramatically fall over the past year or so. In her debut match on the main roster, she won the Divas Championship from AJ Lee, becoming the youngest champion in the title's history at the age of 21. Injuries and supsension kept he out of the ring for a year. A film about her life and that of the Knight family is being released in 2019. She did recently make her comeback leading the Absolution faction but has suffered another injury and this has forced her to retire from in-ring competition. Recently switched to Smackdown and was named the GM on that brand but recently lost that position. A film about her life has recently been released.

Drew McIntyre - This Scottish wrestler has already had one run in WWE winning the Intercontinental and tag team titles. He made his return tot NXT earlier this year and won the NXT title from Bobby Roode in August. He's since dropped the title and the day after WrestleMania 34 debuted on Raw teaming up with Dolph Ziggler and became Raw tag champions but dropped the belt to Rollins and Ambrose on October 22. McIntyre split from Dolph Ziggler on the December 3 edition of Raw. He lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 35.

Drake Maverick -  The British wrestler first made his name as Rockstar Spud and won  TNA's British Bootcamp show. He left that company in 2018 and has now debuted in WWE. He's now called Drake Maverick and is the General Manager of 205 Live. September 2018 saw him become the manager of the Raw tag team The Authors of Pain who won the tag titles on the November 5 edition of Raw. He had a rather unfortunate moment at the Survivor Series, wetting himself while being attacked by the Big Show. His team won the Raw tag titles last month but lost them to Bobby Roode and Chad Gable on December 10 but ther opponents have recently regained those titles.

Killain Dain - Part of SAniTy and moved to Smackdown in April 2018.

Nikki Cross -  Still on NXT but likely to move up to the main roster at some point this year. Did take on Becky Lynch on the November 6 edition of Smackdown. She'll be making her main roster debut in the new year, possibly on the Raw brand.

The General Manager of NXT is William Regal who has been in the company for the past 16 years.  2016 saw the company hold a tournament to crown a UK Champion with Tyler Bate becoming champion. He's since lost the belt to Pete Dunne who made his debut on RAW on November 6 winning a non-title match against Cruiserweight champion Enzo Amore.
