Wrestling - WWE Tickets
Not too long ago wrestling was nothing more than a traveling vaudeville act. It demanded the physical prowess of a football player, the toughness of a boxer, and the acting ability of a community theater enthusiast. Then, came the World Wrestling Federation and the whole game of wrestling changed. A lawsuit by the World Wide Fund for Nature led to a name change. Suddenly the World Wrestling Entertainment had arrived and the front office took to serious task to make those WWE tickets match the name.
The WWE now dominates the ratings with two weekly programs, Raw on Monday and Smackdown on Thursday. In addition, the promotional company has a large number of pay per view events. The most notable are Wrestlemania, the Royal Rumble, and No Way Out. These are just a few of 12 pay per view and they mark the beginnings and ends of a number of storylines. As stated before, the company takes its entertainment seriously. So, as the wrestlers have become far more chiseled they have also raised their acting game to at least soap opera level, which is appropriate since the WWE is the manliest soap opera of them all. Seriously, the superstars are put through an emotional ringer, going from heroes to heels in a matter of episodes. There are love triangles, missing brothers, and corporate shake ups.
The WWE always has the action ready to go in terms of wrestling, but the company remains so popular because those moves are built around a plot capturing the audience’s imagination. In the past it has been all about dark magic (the Undertaker), unbridled patriotism (Hulk Hogan), and challenging the system (Generation NeXt). Now the cast is an international one with names and characters meant to hit every background. The company knows exactly what it is doing and Mr. McMahon is happy to play his part, that of the lone consistent heel. WWE tickets are, as South Park once alluded to, chances to see contemporary Shakespearean tragedies mixed in with a ladder match, a chair to the back and a finishing move for good measure.
