WWE partners with Hire Heroes USA

According to my Yahoo visit, which also entailed seeing how excruciatingly close my win was over Dusty in fantasy football, WWE has partnered with Hire Heroes USA, a group whose mission is to… well, here, I’ll let Yahoo explain it:

WWE (WWE) today announced a partnership with Hire Heroes USA, an organization committed to serving our nation’s veterans through personalized and customized job search training and assistance. To support Hire Heroes USA’s mission, WWE will make a donation and utilize all its assets, including TV broadcasts, live events, digital and social media to generate awareness and raise funds. In addition, Hire Heroes USA will partner with WWE to implement a veterans hiring initiative and enhance WWE’s military hiring practices.

The partnership, which will expand WWE’s commitment to the military through the support of programs that create job opportunities for U.S. military veterans and their spouses, will be featured during the 10th anniversary of WWE Tribute to the Troops. This annual holiday special airs on USA Network this Wednesday, December 19 at 9 p.m. and on NBC this Saturday, December 22 at 9 p.m.

This is a fantastic partnership that makes total sense given WWE’s history of affinity for our armed forces, including free pay-per-view transmission, free tickets, and of course the Tribute to the Troops. However, interesting that this fell under Yahoo Finance, at a time when WWE stock is trading at $8, slightly less than a pack of cigarettes and with less return. What, was the Yahoo Pre-Determined Sports section too full of boxing results? Was the Yahoo Six-Man Tag That Made Internet Nerds’ Heads Explode section down for maintenance? -Eric
