WWE is based on entertainment
WWE events are entertainment-based theatrical performances rather than actual competitions, as is the case with other professional wrestling promotions.
These include narrative, planned and partially choreographed matches; Still, fights often involve moves that, if performed incorrectly, can put the performer at risk of injury or even death.
Vince McMahon, the owner of WWE, recognized in 1989 the predetermination of professional wrestling in the public eye to avoid paying taxes on sports commissions.
WWE recognizes that wrestling has its roots in both theater and competitive sport and markets its product as sports entertainment.
