Fathead will sponsor Cyber Sunday's special interactive voting section that allows fans to vote on which wrestlers will face off, what the rules will be and other elements of the event. Fans have cast more than 10 million individual votes during previous Cyber Sundays. Fathead's sponsorship also includes a mobile voting element, editorial integration and exclusive ownership of the Cyber Sunday section on WWE.com, including custom page skins and ads.
We're thrilled to help Fathead market its life-size WWE Superstars wall graphics. WWE's unique ability to not only license its Superstars' images, but develop deeply integrated programs across all WWE media assets will give Fathead visibility among the attractive male demographic while resonating with an active and loyal WWE fan base," said Patricia Clark, Vice President of Digital Sales for WWE.
In 2006, WWE entered into a licensing agreement with Fathead that allows for the creation of life-size vinyl wall graphics depicting WWE Superstars. All images use high-resolution 3D graphics, and are currently available for purchase at fathead.com and wweshop.com.
