WWE Studios is a Los Angeles-based subsidiary of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., created in 2002 as WWE Films to develop and produce feature film properties.

To date, it has co-produced three films as well as independently produced three more with The Marine being the first developed solely by the company to reach the filming stage, while the first one to be theatrically released is See No Evil. Stone Cold Steve Austin is signed to star in three movies for WWE Films.Before the formation of WWE Films the WWE had produced the 1989 film No Holds Barred featuring Hulk Hogan.

In 2006, WWE Films chose to further expand the variety of projects that it intends to pursue by also focusing made-for-television films and Direct-to-video movies as well as other media platforms. WWE Films was renamed WWE Studios on July 21, 2008 to further represent the expansion of the WWE subsidiary.

Due to the TV-PG rating by the WWE, all movies are switched from rated R to PG-13 in order to target a younger audience.
