World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is a very popular professional wrestling entertainment organization in the US. Though it was denied for many years, it was finally admitted that the shows and events are scripted. However, that has not stopped people from enjoying the stories. If you want to watch these events, you would typically need a cable or satellite subscription. However, you no longer need to have one of these services to be able to watch.
Founded originally in 1980 by Vince Mcmahon, the WWE has grown from a local wrestling show to the multi-million dollar organization it is today. Mcmahon inherited the idea from his father, a small time wrestling promoter in the past. The admission of scripted storylines was first admitted in 1989 so the company could avoid paying taxes on it. That move did not seem to decrease it’s popularity.
There are several ways to watch the WWE if you don’t have a cable or satellite subscription. If you are traveling outside the US, be sure to connect to a VPN.

The WWE Network is a great source to watch WWE events. They offer exclusive content and more than 8,000 hours of on demand wrestling related content.
