About Kevin Sullivan
A graduate of Fairfield University, Kevin Sullivan began his sports-entertainment career in 1998 when he accepted a position within WWE. Over the course of the next decade, he played an integral role in WWE.com’s content creation process, most recently as the site’s Content Director. He also served as managing editor of WWE’s Raw Magazine.
Sullivan left WWE on a full-time basis in 2008, but continues to work closely with the company’s publishing department. His first book, the WWE Encyclopedia, became an instant hit and peaked at No. 8 on the New York Times best sellers list. From there, Sullivan teamed with Simon & Schuster to put out The WWE Championship: A Look Back at the Rich History of the WWE Championship. The 320-page narrative tracks wrestling’s most prestigious prize from its first days in 1963 all the way up to today.
Sullivan also wrote the New York Times best-selling WWE 50 book and co-authored the second edition of the best-selling WWE Encyclopedia. Additionally, Sullivan has penned seven children’s books for WWE, including biographies on Undertaker, John Cena, and Big Show.
