WWE, also known as World Wrestling Entertainment, is currently the largest professional wrestling company globally. In April 2023, the previous chairman and owner of WWE decided to sell the company to Endeavor Group, which happens to own UFC, the biggest mixed martial arts promotion.

In September 2023, Endeavor Group revealed their plans to merge WWE and UFC, creating a powerhouse in the world of combat sports.
