World Wrestling Entertainment is easily the most recognizable sports-entertainment brand in history. The dominant brand in the wrestling landscape for decades, WWE has turned the genre into one of the world's biggest, experiencing multiple renaissances throughout its existence to stay fresh and modern.
Over the years, it has produced some of the biggest stars in the world, including The Rock, Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Kane, Triple H, John Cena, and Roman Reigns.
