WWE is launching a new one hour show in October on ION. (pwinsider.com) What is ION? WWE Main Event will be on Wednesday nights.

From the press release

"WWE Main Event will feature in-ring action and fit seamlessly in storylines from Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, making Wednesday night appointment viewing for fans. The new series will offer a big arena experience with live audiences like current WWE weekly programs."

Is this not just Superstars under a new name? Or will it start off as something else and then just become what Superstars was?

Back when ION was PAX, they aired some WWE programming - I seem to recall a repackaged highlights show leading up to WrestleMania one year. I feel like if it were "Superstars," they'd just call it "Superstars" - I would be surprised if this turned out to be something different than the latest iteration of Bottom Line/AfterBurn. (This is all based on wild speculation and an educated guess that only comes from watching 20 years of WWF/WWE television moves)

EDIT: I guess that was 1998 - wow, so long ago.

PAX ALSO aired RPW, if you remember THAT.

Perhaps they feel "Superstars" is a failed show from another network and carries that taint. Which means it'll be another 20 years before they decide to dust it off for the next iteration of Superstars. "Main Event", without the prefix "Saturday Night's" conjures up images of the most successful and widely-seen prime time wrestling program of all time, when Andre beat Hogan for the title in 1988. This "Main Event" is unlikely to be as consequential.

    It'll be a "B" show similar to Superstars. With NXT no longer being taped on Tuesdays, the most likely scenario is that either Superstars or Main Event will be taped before Raw on Monday, and the other show will be taped before Smackdown on Tuesday.


It's back to the Velocity & Heat days. Or two Superstars.

Nice...I knew I should've bought stock when it was down a few years back. It's wrestling, it cycles, just about like anything else it this world. Just like trends, fads, and other various things. Really good quick read. Thanks for the find.
