WWE Overtakes George W. Bush as most edited Article in Wikipedia
According to BBC former United States president, George W. Bush, who took office 5 days after the launch of the website used to be the most edited article on their site. That accolade however, now belongs to the list of WWE personnel now. The article dealing with their roster has had more than 53,000 edits over the years!
This goes to show the eagerness of fans of WWE, who want the site to reflect accurate information about the show. It also helps that the WWE constantly draft their wrestlers in different brands while bringing in new names all the time.
The honor makes much more sense when you take into account the fact that their personnel is constantly changing. The various firings, hiring and transferring of talent along with the commentators, referees and other backstage staff go a long way in bringing the number of edits it has.
