    has supplied America

    Hello.

    Professional wrestling, the kind that mixes soap opera dramatics with feats of athleticism, has supplied America with a steady stream of entertainment since the 1950s. It hit the mainstream in the ’80s, with stars like Hulk Hogan and André the Giant, who passed the torch to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Bill “Goldberg,” and a handful of wrestlers ‘90s and ‘00s kids (like Belpre) grew up idolizing.

    Can anyone help me what the word "has" refer to? Will you please help how to form a sentence by using "has" like the sentence above?

    The only structure I know is that

    The economy has improved.

    Does "00s" mean the period from 2000 to 2010?

    This paragraph is taken from

    Yes. It's often called the aughts in American English.

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    The verb has doesn't refer to anything. It's an auxiliary verb, part of the present perfect tense of the sentence.
