WWF Superstars (1986–1999)
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
"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.- Written by Brian Rathjen <email@example.com>
