WWE® TOPS 100 MILLION FACEBOOK FANS AT WRESTLEMANIA

STAMFORD, Conn., April 10, 2013 – WWE® (NYSE:WWE) today announced it eclipsed 100 million Facebook fans across its network of pages during WrestleMania 29, further cementing itself as one of the most followed brands in the world.

The main WWE Facebook page also has more fans than the NHL, The New York Times, ESPN, Pepsi, Burger King, NASCAR and CNN. Seventeen WWE Superstars rank in the top 100 most-followed athletes on Facebook, with John Cena ® (more than 14 million fans) as the third most-followed athlete in the U.S. behind only Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.

To drive additional fan engagement, WWE launched “Superfan Showdown,” a Facebook app exclusive to the platform that allows fans from around the world to compete in fast-paced interactive trivia challenges, rapid-fire polls, mind-bending puzzles and much more. As fans go head-to-head, they earn points, climb the global leaderboard and accumulate “WWE cash” that can be spent to purchase exclusive virtual goods, including: limited edition badges, rare Superstar trading cards, and never-before-seen WWE video content.
