WWE traces its lineage back to the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF), formed by Vince McMahon Sr in 1963. It dropped the extra W from its name in 1979, after which point new owner Vince McMahon began to expand beyond his father’s Northwestern base. Mega-fame for its stars arrived in the ‘90s, as the likes of first Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior, and later Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, became household names, adored by fans aged 14 to 40.
