The Power of the WWE
WWE is one of the biggest box office draws in sports and entertainment today, generating over $400 million in revenue dollars annually. Fans are already anxious to get their WWE tickets early for some of the headline matches being featured on the 2009 tour schedule. World Wrestling entertainment is a multimedia giant that has brought the power of the wrestling industry front and center for fans who want their matches Raw and bursting with SmackDown mayhem. WWE excitement is broadcast on Pay per View television and held at large sports arenas in many countries including the US, Canada, Japan, and the UK. Events are frequently headlined under one of these WWE banners: Raw, SmackDown and ECW. Throughout the world, there are cheering crowds who can barely contain their enthusiasm as they wait for a turn to sit at ringside for a personal and up-close view of the action.
Why Fans are Passionate about WWE
While there are many televised events that are sponsored by WWE, nothing can replace the incredible pulse-pounding thrill of experiencing the fury and mayhem live from prime seats. The top WWE tickets sell out quickly, especially for grudge and headline matches, and fans are always cautioned about the necessity for early purchases if they want to be able to attend any of the live shows. Long gone are the days when live wrestling was a second or third-rate sporting venue, today WWE has put this sport and its larger than life wrestling personalities at the “top of the entertainment heap”.
Vince MacMahon is known as ‘The Chairman’, and he was the mastermind who transformed the regionalized pro wrestling scene into the conglomerate behemoth that it is today. His tactics were not always appreciated but he was the driving force that brought this sport into mainstream entertainment. While most fans know that that professional wrestling is indeed a combination of athletics, skill and acting, they still get caught up in the fantasy that takes place just inches from their eyes. It is very difficult to convince some viewers that much of the action is created for their enjoyment. In fact, many die-hard fans search for WWE tickets for every possible event just because they are so passionate about cheering on the gladiators of their choice.
The 2009 Season has Exploded
Already there has been some incredibly hard action going down on the WWE scene. On a recent SmackDown event, there was a mishap with some of the pyrotechnics. One of the fan favorites and WWE Champ, Jeff Hardy, was rushed for medical treatment for suspected burns to his face and body. This isn’t what is usually meant by hot, live action but it goes to show you that the wrestling business is not completely run by choreographed scripts. This January, SmackDown continued and all of the fans certainly got more than they bargained for.
The 2009 Royal Rumble is getting ready to explode in just a few days and participants for this live match include Shelton Benjamin, the Undertaker, Carlito, and the Moscow Mauler. The Royal Rumble is always a top event because there is a chance at the World Championship title for the winner of this no holds barred spectacular. There is no doubt that the new season for WWE will give them enough thrills, chills and spills to keep them satisfied. WWE tickets are selling at a furious pace and there are some new personalities that will soon be introduced and several are sure to create some controversies and drama.
