Information about the American Wrestling Federation

  • The American Wrestling Federation was owned by Paul Alperstein and booked by Tito Santana and Sgt. Slaughter.

  • The in-ring style was similar to the WWF of the 1980s, but used 4-minute rounds.

  • The TV show aired in syndication and had a unique look due to using film rather than videotape.

  • The company is the likely the first to have a negative gate as the TV tapings featured "fans" paid to react in the proper manner.
