WWE overlooks major anniversary

With the 20th Anniversary of Raw coming up this Monday, WWE’s focus has turned to that. However, whether by mistake or deliberate, they have forgotten to commemorate a much more important date in history.

It was on January 7 1953 that the Capitol Wrestling Corporation promoted it’s first wrestling event. The reason that is important is that the CWC pre-dated what is known today as WWE by ten years. It was in January 1963 that Vince McMahon Sr changed the name from Capitol to the World Wide Wrestling Federation.

WWE has always made it a point to state that they were officially created in January 1963 with the birth of the WWWF when they split from the NWA, but in actuality, all that changed in 1963 was the name. Management, rosters, champions, booked dates and arenas were all the same, all that differed was the name.

So despite their failure to mention or mark the date, what is now known the world over as World Wrestling Entertainment has just had it’s 60th anniversary.
