There are many wrestling fans that just love the World Wrestling Entertainment. However, there is a small number of them that knows that all this dates back to 1925.
It all started with Roderick McMahon. He was the one to promote different boxing matches, and all this happened in New York City. He met a former professional wrestler (Joseph Mondt) and he was working in order to add some improvements to this sport. This was done by adding new moves and at the same time he also managed to find a good number of wrestlers that were into this performance.
These two have created the Capitol Wrestling Corporation, which was the organization to become the today’s WWE. They soon joined the National Wrestling Alliance and this way their business became official and got more legitimacy. The business was passed to Roderick’s son, and there was a tradition born with the McMahon at the head of the company. All this happened in the early 50s.
