January, 1953. Before any Monday Night War, Pay Per View, or weekly live TV, Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt helped change the face of professional wrestling forever.
Join Seth and Crazy Train as they tell the story of the formation of Capitol Wrestling Corporation. As you may have surpised by the name “McMahon”, the company was co-founded by Jess McMahon, the grandfather of Vincent K. McMahon.
Hear the stories behind the days with the National Wrestling Alliance, and the subsequent breakaway, which lead to the formation of the World Wide Wrestling Federation. In short, Capitol Wrestling was the company that would eventually morph into World Wrestling Entertainment.
