Wrestling is officially out of the WWE name now

Although only loosely related to 1980s WWF wrestling, I wanted to mention a piece I wrote for Camel Clutch Blog about the WWE’s newest name change.

For those who don’t know, the WWE is officially known by just its initials now and not by World Wrestling Entertainment. Apparently Vince McMahon wants the WWE to be an entertainment company and branch out into other fields. Clearly “wrestling” continues to be a very dirty word for McMahon.

However, in “WWE name change recalls a series of past entertainment bombs,” I mention the terrible track record that McMahon has going outside of the wrestling world, including questionable 1980s WWF decisions about a bad movie and even worse music album.

My thanks for posting the piece to Camel Clutch Blog, which is very good site to check out if you’re interested in following the current scene in U.S. pro wrestling and MMA.
