Wrestling companies have been around since carnivals figured out how to monetize a mixture of theater and amateur wrestling in the early 1900s. The National Wrestling Alliance consolidated the USA's major regional territories in 1948. Rikidozan introduced the professional wrestling world to Japan around the same time as a morale boost after World War II, becoming a national hero in the process.
Although wrestling is usually either an oligopoly or monopoly depending on the country, independent wrestling promotions rose in prominence after pro wrestling experienced a popularity boom during the late 1990s that even saw World Championship Wrestling's Goldberg grace the cover of TV Guide and WWF airing a Super Bowl commercial. The rise of DVDs and online streaming allowed cheaper ways to distribute products than breaking into pay-per-view, allowing a company like Ring of Honor or TNA to survive.
