WWF begins trading on NYSE


By GREG OLIVER -- SLAM! Wrestling

The WWF put another feather in its proverbial cap today as it began trading its stock on the New York Stock Exchange.

Many WWF superstars, including The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were on hand today in New York outside the Exchange to celebrate the move from the NASDAQ exchange.

"Our move to The New York Stock Exchange positions the WWF among the premiere businesses on the world's most prestigious exchange," said Linda McMahon, Chief Executive Officer of WWF Entertainment. "This is another key strategic move for the company and we look forward to a long partnership with all those at the NYSE. We believe that this event will heighten our recognition in the financial marketplace as we continue to build global awareness of our brand name and our unique form of entertainment."

"We also believe our listing on the NYSE should lead Wall Street and the entire financial community to a much clearer understanding of the strength and popularity of the WWF," added Ms. McMahon.

The WWFE stock had its initial public offering on October 19, 1999 on the NASDAQ exchange.
