– WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has written an article for profiling the rich relationship between WWE and New York City.

“As the global entity that WWE is today, many cities are visited by its Superstars and Divas. But there is still an aura about the biggest city in the world — New York City — that means something very special to WWE. And this “love affair” has been continuous for more than 50 years,” writes Finkel.
