The greatest story ever told? We think the chronicle of WWE’s evolution ranks way up there.

It begins with Mr. McMahon’s purchase of his father’s business in 1982, and ends … well, there’s really no telling. This timeline is divided into six action-packed sections, with each one detailing the events of a particular era in the company’s history: The ’80s Boom (’82-’85); The Dawn of WrestleMania (’85-’90); The New Generation (’90-’96); The Attitude Era (’96-’01); The Postwar Era (’01-’05) and The Modern Era (’05-Present).
