Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.
As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.
Today, we throw back to the days of yesteryear with WWF Superstars (of Wrestling).
NOTE: This is in reference to the original incarnation of WWF Superstars, lasting from 1986 to 1996. We’re not talking about the magazine show from 1996 to 2001, nor the video games of the same name, nor the reboot that lasted from 2009 to 2016.
For people of my age, Superstars was appointment viewing, and for me, it was where my wrestling fandom began. I remember watching the show every Saturday at 12 noon. I looked forward to that hour, and I was bummed when I came home from work one Saturday and Superstars wasn’t on. It felt kinda weird.
Anyway, while the show was mostly squash matches that wouldn’t last more than about four minutes, it was quick, you maybe get one good match a show, and stories moved along. I think it’s responsible for a lot of people’s fandoms.
That was easy. Now you do it. Say something nice about WWF Superstars.
Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
