The WWE, an acronym for World Wrestling Entertainment, is the United States' highest level of professional wrestling. WWE matches are not considered as legitimate as other sporting events, but rather a source of entertainment and showmanship.
Professional wrestlers often take ring names to hide their identities or to play a character more effectively. Professional wrestling, such as the WWE, is about putting on a show as much as it is about having an actual wrestling match. Wrestlers with memorable ring names stay in the audience's mind.
Pro-wrestlers.com offers many wrestler bios, which include the wrestlers' real names. ProWrestling has a list of pro wrestlers matched with their real names, as do 1oftball.com and deadwrestlers.net. LethalWow has a list that reveals the real names of female wrestlers.
Becoming a professional wrestler requires training, studying, networking and staying in excellent physical condition. Like other professional sports, professional wrestling is difficult to break into, and organizations are very selective about the wrestlers they hire.
Youth, high school and college wrestlers wear uniforms called singlets. These uniforms resemble women's one-piece swimsuits. The difference between the two is in the length and the dip of the neckline, which is dependent upon the style of wrestling in which the wearer participates.
Wrestlers in the various guilds and organizations which organize wrestling matches are paid on an individual basis and receive appearance fees and bonus pay in addition to whatever salaries they may command. Thus they may be paid anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.
