Following the successful broadcast debut of WWE on Fox Turkey in March, Sinerji Reklam is to begin representing the property in the territory.

WWE Smackdown started broadcasting at the beginning of March, pulling in five million viewers.

"Wrestling has been a Turkish national sport since the 1600s and with WWE the leading and most recognised exponent of wrestling globally, it has long been our aim to create a licensing and retail program in Turkey," explained Ross Walker, WWE director of international consumer products.

"Sinerji Reklam shares the same belief so their appointment was a straightforward decision. The huge viewing figures demonstrate the appetite for WWE in Turkey and this, allied to Sinerji's expertise and proven track record, ensures that a long-term, sustainable business is very achievable."

Hakan Durdag, owner of Sinerji Reklam, added: "WWE is an incredibly strong property, particularly in regards to licensing as it is popular with children, teens and adults. I am confident that licensees will be excited about the prospect of collaborating with us on WWE."
