Storyline

In the early 80's, Vince McMahon began a "WWF Superstars of Wrestling" as a Saturday morning, family friendly version of professional wrestling. He built a phenomenon around such characters as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, The Junk Yard Dog, Andre the Giant, Demolition, and later Bret Hitman Hart, The Undertaker & Shawn Michaels. The show featured pro wrestling and soap opera-esque storylines. The show ended its thirteen year run in 1997, when the WWF moved into edgier territory with its RAW program. Written by Anonymous

For all newer wrestling fans or older fans who don't recall, "WWF Superstars of Wrestling" is a perfect example of how wrestling used to be presented on television. Long before wrestling's explosion in popularity on Monday night cable TV, most wrestling fans used to be satisfied with these one-hour syndicated wrestling programs. Typical programs featured big-name wrestlers against jobbers (those wrestlers who always lost); interviews that were taped (usually) weeks in advance; promotions of upcoming wrestling events; promos, or skits, of wrestlers soon to either make their debut or introduce a new gimmick; updates of current events, feuds, etc. in a given wrestling organization; maybe but not always a confrontation between two currently feuding wrestlers; and perhaps a main event pitting two big-name wrestlers against each other. Most people were satisfied with these 60-minute programs for years. Of course, professional wrestling has improved greatly much better since the Monday night explosion, and the makeup of syndicated and cable wrestling programs has greatly changed. But for those who perhaps caught the professional wrestling bug in recent times, this is how it was. The now-defunct American Wrestling Association (AWA) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) organizations -- plus other regional promotions that have long-since folded in the wake of Vince McMahon's expansion of his WWF -- had syndicated wrestling programs similar to "WWF Superstars of Wrestling."
