WWE Forgets To Celebrate Major Anniversary
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.09.2013

- With WWE preparing to celebrate the 20th anniversary of RAW, they've forgotten a more important anniversary: the 60th anniversary of the Capitol Wrestling Corporation, which was January 7. That's when Vince McMahon Sr promoted his first wrestling event under the Capitol banner, according to the WWE Encylopedia.

WWE has said in the past that they were officially created a decade later in January 1963 when they broke away from the NWA, but all they did was change the name of the promotion. Everything else (management, stockholders, roster, champions, booked arenas, TV timeslots, staff, etc) were still the same. The only thing that actually changed was Capitol Wrestling's name to the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). In March 1979 they switched to WWF and then in May 2002 they switched to WWE.
