Professional wrestling has reached a point where any superstar who gets in has the potential to earn gold. With numerous companies in competition all around the globe, it is very safe to say that WWE is not alone in building good quality content. There are other promotions in competition as well. 

While the Triple H era has turned out to be stupendous till now, this trend of having every single fan engaged began back around 1985s when wrestling was considered ‘cool’. Back until 1991, when there were no shows for Saturday Night Live to feature, Vince McMahon introduced a new show named Saturday Night’s Main Event. 

While the new show did wonders, they paid money to Seinfeld to finance the first few episodes of the show. In a recent interview on The Rich Eisen Show, Jerry Seinfeld revealed that American sitcom, Seinfeld’s, pilot was something NBC didn’t like. However, they took money from WWE to feature it on TV. 

And soon after they started running the episodes on TV, things turned around. Eventually, Seinfeld became one of the greatest sitcoms that have ever featured on TV. Ringside News will keep you updated with this story.
