Let’s Get Ready to Rumble

It’s finally time for India to ‘Feel the Rush’ as the new year will bring the biggest WWE Superstars and Divas to New Delhi.  

 

We have all grown up with WWE being a part of our lives and aside from having tremendous athletic ability and the personality to entertain an audience, the top professional wrestlers have left their mark embedded in our memories with their stage names designed to fit their persona perfectly. Where would the WWE be without Hulk Hogan, Bret The Hitman Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin along with The Rock and his signature catchphrase – ‘If you smell what The Rock is cooking’? And who can forget the legendary battles between Kane and (my personal favorite) The Undertaker.

When it comes to professional wrestling, there’s no place for subtlety. You have to cater to the tiniest fan in a sold out arena as well as to the millions watching at home. And no one has understood how to do this better than Vince McMahon – founder and CEO of WWE.

Since 1982, when Vince, popularly known as Mr. McMahon, took over the business from his father, he has managed to be a part of every family, not only in the United States but across the globe. What made this man and his company a household name was his understanding of the audience within his country as well as the international potential his brand had, in terms of growth. Emerging market revenue has been growing at a 7 percent annual rate for almost a decade in countries like India, Mexico and even South Korea, to $116 million last year and Mr. McMahon has done every thing possible to cash in.

One of the biggest markets outside the US where World Wrestling Entertainment has enjoyed dominance in, is India. You can literally walk up to practically any guy on the road and they would be able to tell you about the who’s who in the WWE. 

As a kid, the most popular trading cards used were of our favorite WWE superstars and the trend still continues. This doesn’t only apply to children. Hence, it’s no surprise that Vince McMahon is bringing his blockbuster event back to this part of the world once again.

Of course, times change and along with the reigning superstars, some new stars have entered the arena. What’s amazing is the fact that the WWE has still managed to associate itself with every generation. 

Introducing John Cena, a complete fan favorite, a rapper, an actor and professional wrestler; it’s no surprise that this WWE champion is a legend in the making (if not already one). Imagine him battle the giant Big Show who was a huge hit the last time he was in India. Or how would the Lunatic FringeDean Ambrose be able to handle The NeutralizerCesaro? And will the 6-foot-3, 291 pound monster known as The Big GuyRyback survive the Irish Curse, the Back BreakerSheamus.

Well, fortunately we don’t just have to imagine. The biggest WWE Superstars and Divas will be in New Delhi to entertain our massive community of wrestling fans in India. As Vince McMahon has been quoted as saying multiple times on WWE, “The biggest thrill in the world is entertaining the public, there is no bigger thrill than that”. And come the 15th & 16th of January 2016, entertained we will be!
