WWF Superstars: From being WWF/E's flagship show, to a jobber show, to a magazine show, and to another jobber show. And between those, an arcade game. And still the term the promotion collectively call their wrestlers (not accounting for the name change).

Unused Graphics

Arcwwfss-andre.png Arcwwfss-dibiase.png

Unused HUD name graphics for final opponents Andre the Giant and Ted "Million Dollar Man" DiBiase, known collectively as the "Megabucks". Neither of these two are playable, and names/gauges are never displayed for CPU players.

The yellow names have pointer/tilemap issues, as they are used if the other wrestler is the active one. DiBiase's name will be pushed off to the left and have its D missing, and Andre's will have a "hole" to the right of it.

Revisional Differences

There are three known US revisions of the game in MAME, each labeled Revision 4 (wwfsstaru4), Revision 6 (wwfsstaru6), and Revision 7 (wwfsstaru7). Revision 7 contains a very minor change to the handling of the second coin slot.
