Monster Wars was a syndicated television show featuring United States Hot Rod Association monster truck racing. The show aired for one season between 1993-1994, and was the successor to the popular Super Trax. The show was hosted by Luann Lee, with Joe Lowe providing commentary, and Jim Davidson as a behind-the-scenes reporter. The show was controversial within the monster truck community for its use of superhero-style mascots for several trucks. Before individual races, these mascots would often appear on screen, trash talking to one another. These trucks were also given new paint schemes, and in Predator's case, a new body, to match their characters (except for Grave Digger, which was the most popular truck on the show). Many saw the personification of trucks as representing the sport as similar to professional wrestling, and although a toy series and video game followed, the show was cancelled after one season.
