I'm too lazy to go back and look at every post in this thread to see if it's been discussed already, but April 1992 is when they  officially changed it from Superstars of Wrestling to just Superstars because some other promoter claimed ownership of that trademark and sued them. They'd have to do a lot of work editing if they were going to start from the very beginning in 1986


Wow that is terrible.  I really want Superstars of Wrestling 1986-1992.

During the Wild West days of eBay before there were any copyright rules (or WWF lawyers checking the site) I used to make a fortune selling 6 hour blocks of Superstars from 1986 on VHS. On a good auction, one tape could easily go for $60-$80 and I kept running off copy after copy for months. I remember checking my auctions on 9/11 actually.
