McMahon's focus on entertainment rather than giving his product a legitimate sports feel, the policy that became the concept of sports entertainment , led to great financial success for WWF. [ citation needed ] During the 1980s, Hulk Hogan would crossover into mainstream prominence presented as an all-American hero. [ citation needed ] Hogan's time as the face of the WWF would last until he departed from the company in the summer of 1993. Other stars such as "Macho Man" Randy Savage , "Rowdy" Roddy Piper , The Ultimate Warrior , The Honky Tonk Man , "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase , and others also helped make WWF a financial success in this time period. [ citation needed ] While these talents were recognizable as individuals, some talent became better known for their teamwork as part of tag teams. Stables or groups such as Demolition , Strike Force , The Hart Foundation , The British Bulldogs , The Rockers and The Fabulous Rougeaus helped create a strong tag team division for WWF. [ citation needed ] Towards the end of the "Golden Age", Bret Hart of the Hart Foundation began to break out on his own as a singles competitor, with his most memorable match early on taking place at SummerSlam in 1992 against "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith .

The word Avocado comes from a Nahuatl Indian (Aztec) word “ ahuácatl ” meaning testicle. It is thought that the reference is either due to the avocado’s shape or the fact that it was considered to possess aphrodisiac qualities by the Aztecs. In Spanish, “ ahuácatl ” became “aguacate” and eventually “avogato” and then “avocado”. In English, the fruit was first described as an “Avagato pear” because of its pear-like shape. Later it also became known as an “alligator pear” given the alligator-like appearance to the skin. Over time, the term Avocado became the common word used to describe the fruit in English.
Sting returned to singles matches in 1989, starting the year off by wrestling Flair to a one-hour draw in Atlanta's Omni on New Year's Day. He would also have his first experience in Japan with a brief tour in All Japan Pro Wrestling , with his most notable match in AJPW against Dan Spivey on January 25. After a long push, Sting won his first title in the NWA when he defeated Rotundo for the NWA Television Championship at a live event in March.  Sting defended the Television title actively but tended to face sub-par challengers such as The Iron Sheik . In mid-1989, The Great Muta challenged Sting at The Great American Bash . The match was booked with a classic, controversial Dusty finish even though Rhodes (the namesake of the technique) had been fired months earlier. Sting got the three-count and was announced as the winner, but a replay showed Muta's shoulder was up at the count of two. The NWA decided to declare the title vacant.  Sting and Muta battled in many rematches for the vacant Television title, but they always ended in disqualification, giving neither man the championship. Eventually, Muta won a No Disqualification match against Sting at a live event in September by using a blackjack to get the win and the title.
