World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc (WWE.COM) has recently made the move from a custom CMS to Drupal – proving that if Drupal can handle WWE’s 200 million page-views per month, it can handle pretty much anything.
The project to move from WWE’s previous custom CMS to Drupal took over a year and makes extensive use of CCK, Panels, and Views. The rich media of the site is all built on web-standards, meaning that even fans using iPhones and iPads can enjoy all the slideshows and videos of the “entertainers” pretending to wrestle, fight, and carry on with drama.
If you are curious about just how far you can push Drupal, have a look at the new WWE.COM website. At least you know the website isn’t all faked.
