"The hour-long weekly program, scheduled to debut in April 2009, will provide WGN America viewers the chance to see Superstars and Divas from all three WWE franchises in one program. WWE Superstars is scheduled to air on Thursday nights at 8 and 11pm ET with an additional run on the weekend (Saturday afternoons)."
We really need some modern-day variations of "Fuji Vice", "The Bobby Heenan Show", etc. Heck, if they could bring back the Slammy Awards??
Originally posted by The ThrillI wonder if this'll be like the old "Superstars" program with squash matches and the occasional name-vs.-name matchup...
...or just HeAT rehashed.
That's pretty much what Heat was.
I liked both Heat and Velocity, though. If you liked some guys who for one reason or another not getting a push, then Heat was the place to go to. Here's to hoping Superstars works the same way.
Forfeit the game, before somebody else takes you outta the game, and puts your name to shame Cover up your face, you can't run the race The pace is too fast, you just won't last - "Points Of Authority" - Linkin Park
First off I can dig it being try tri-branded show. With under card talent from each. Heck, roll in the classic jobbers for all I care.
If Jeffy flippin Hardy can go from the Jsquad to WWE champion over the course of nearly 17 years on TV then I'm all for them piecing together an hour full of wrestling. Not just another "review" show which a A TON of there syndicated programing became in the late 90's early part of the 2000's. Shotgun Saturday Night then later Jakked/Afterburn. If they steer away from that I'll be ONE happy wrestling junkie.
Something I wasn't aware of: Curtis Iaukea and former WCW Television and Cruiserweight Champion Prince Iaukea weren't related. Prince Iaukea's real name is Michael Haynes, and he was trained by Rico Federico and Dean Malenko.
