...Saturday nights were for WWF wrestling!!
|The show debuted May 11, 1985 on NBC.|
Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and Jesse "The Body" Ventura were just some of the wrestlers that help the show break rating records in 1987 for its time slot (that still stand today.)
From 1985-1988, pop music was used throughout the show. Animotion's "Obsession" was the opening theme while "Take Me Home" by Phil Collins served as the closing theme. "Take on Me" by a-ha was also used for commercial breaks.
