Stephanie McMahon Says Vince McMahon Coined The Term 'Sports Entertainment'
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.28.2014



In an interview with The Boston Herald, Stephanie McMahon said that her father is the one that came up with the term "sports entertainment". Here are highlights:

On Vince's contributions to the business: "My father coined the phrase, ‘sports entertainment'. Vince let the world in on that, yes, this is actually predetermined and, yes, we are having fun. He was the one who created this live action-adventure soap opera."

On the "Connor's Cure" charity: "This is all about developing and donating for pediatric brain and spinal cancer research. We're trying to help fund the research to help stop the cancer."

On WWE's continued growth: "WWE continues to grow and expand at a rate faster than anyone can possibly imagine. We have over 360 million social media followers, and we have over 12 million downloads of our app. But I have to say, even given all that, we're just getting warmed up."
