Titan Towers[3] is an office building located in Stamford, Connecticut, United States. It served as the global headquarters for the American professional wrestling and entertainment company WWE from 1991 to 2023.[4] WWE, a majority owned subsidiary of TKO Group Holdings (TKO), later moved their global headquarters to Washington Boulevard in Stamford, with TKO establishing its headquarters in New York City.

Overview and history[edit]

Built in 1981 in Stamford, Connecticut,[5] the 94,248 sq ft (8,800 m2) building consists of four stories of office space and four levels of parking.[2] The building was reopened as the headquarters of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, later WWE) on May 13, 1991.[6] Prior to the move to Titan Towers, the offices of Titan Sports, the parent company of the WWF, were headquartered at the Cape Cod Coliseum in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts before later moving to Holly Hill Lane in Greenwich, Connecticut and then to 1055 Summer Street in the same town. The main exterior logo of Titan Towers has changed over the years to reflect alterations made to the logo of the WWF/WWE.[7]

According to former WWF executive and on-screen manager Jim Cornette, Vince McMahon's office and the offices of those in charge of wrestling creative are on one side of the building, while Linda McMahon's office and the offices of those in charge of corporate projects were on the other.[8]

On March 20, 2019, WWE announced their intentions to sell Titan Towers, and relocate their headquarters to 677–707 Washington Boulevard in Stamford, Connecticut.[9][10] It was later reported that after WWE merged with the UFC mixed martial arts promotion in September 2023 to form TKO Group Holdings (TKO), Titan Towers would serve as the headquarters of TKO.[11] These reports were later proven incorrect, with TKO headquarters later being revealed as being located in New York City. The building currently has no affiliation with WWE or TKO, as WWE completed their move to the Washington Boulevard headquarters.

Use in WWF/WWE programming[edit]


On September 7, 1995, the rooftop of Titan Towers was used for one of the scenes of the opening intro of WWF Monday Night Raw. This scene featured Yokozuna, The Undertaker, Razor Ramon, and several other wrestlers.[12]

In 1999, Titan Towers was featured in a 30-second television commercial that consisted of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sable, The Rock, Kane, The Undertaker, Mankind, Chyna, and Vince McMahon during Super Bowl XXXIII.[13] That same year, on the June 14 edition of Raw is War, Austin took a kayfabe role as CEO overseeing day-to-day operations within the WWF.[14]


During the August 21, 2006, episode of Raw, D-Generation X defaced Titan Towers by tagging the "DX" logo on the building with green spray paint.[15][16]

In the build-up to Extreme Rules in 2013, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman visited Titan Towers on May 13 in which they vandalized Triple H's office and attacked nearby employees of WWE.[17]

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Titan Towers was briefly used as an alternative location for selected matches during pay-per-views (as opposed to the WWE Performance Center). WrestleMania 36's "Firefly Fun House" match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena was filmed at Titan Towers using props and set pieces in storage.[18] The two eponymous ladder matches at Money in the Bank were also filmed on its premises; the wrestlers began on the ground floor in the lobby and fought their way to the rooftop where a ring was located with the Money in the Bank briefcases suspended above the ring.[19][20]
