Who Invented WWE?

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is a professional wrestling organization founded in 1952.

Vince McMahon Sr.

Vince McMahon Sr. was an American professional wrestling promoter and founder of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He was born on July 6, 1914, in Springfield, Massachusetts.

His Life

Vince McMahon Sr. was born on July 6, 1914 in carnival family. His father, Jess McMahon, was a promoter and booker for circuses, burlesque shows, and consulting with carnival sideshows. When McMahon was just a young boy, his family fell on hard times and his father Jess lost everything in the Great Depression. It was then that McMahon’s mother Sylvia suggested to Jess that he should start promoting boxing matches. And so he did.

In the early 1930s, Jess McMahon started promoting boxing matches in Washington D.C. and New York City. He did this for about a decade before passing away in November of 1954.
