WWF Superstars (1986–1999)
- Summaries (3)
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.
"WWF Superstars" took its name from the World Wrestling Federation's long-running syndicated series, using the title on the wrestling promotion's cable week-in-review program. Kevin Kelly (himself a former wrestler) reviewed the past week in the World Wrestling Federation and updated viewers on ongoing feuds and upcoming events. Frequently, the series featured segments on the WWF cast's out-of-character (i.e., their real-life personalities) and out-of-ring activities (e.g., charitable, civic and political activities; appearances in movies and TV-series; etc.), as well as occasional behind-the-scenes looks at the WWF.
