    Is this replacing Vintage Collection in the UK?

    I would rather vintage collection if this is just going to be a Heat / Velocity style show.

    Personally I think the show will be a godsend for some of the low end wrestlers who can't make it onto WWE TV at the moment. The alternative would be a pink slip, or weeks of WWE Creative saying "they have nothing for them".

    Thursday nights at 8pm and 11pm is a very good slot for the show as well, as wrestling fans have the choice to watch Superstars before or after TNA iMPACT now!

    I'm hoping for a return to the old ways of sqaush matches on TV to get the wrestlers' character and moves over.

    Mike Knox, Raw and Jamie Noble want to talk to you.

    10am is a bad slot, that means we'll just keep seeing cutaways of the crowd instead of high impact moves - I'd rather Sky replaced Afterburn. Raw and Smackdown are repeated so you can easily catch them.

    Its not even being shown on Sky...the information above that its being shown on the 19th April is incorrect...

    I agree with the comments made in this thread saying that it will be good for the lower end talent. Not to mention some of the lower end titles. I could easily see title defenses of the ECW, Intercontinental, United States, Women's, Divas, World Tag Team, & WWE Tag Team Titles. In addition to giving the lower end guys an opportunity to shine, it will also be good for some of the talent that does not make it on that week's edition of RAW, SmackDown, or ECW. I think the time slot for the U.S. is a good one to have. It's prime time and having it on a Thursday gives them the option of promoting SmackDown for the next night. Not to mention putting it on WGN America is a good move as opposed to trying to put it on NBC or the USA Network as the lowest of ratings would be good for a network like WGN. Look at how SmackDown is doing on MyNetworkTV. The ratings aren't great on paper, but in contrast to the other stuff on MyNetworkTV, SmackDown is gold (even more so when the station switched to a complete rerun network).

    I thought Superstars was for B and C level stars. Sounds like an A list show to me now.

    Well, I got that impression from the Matt Hardy/Taker Matchup outlined as a main event. :D
    Not quite sure why everyone else automatically assumed it was going to be C list this time around just because it 'used to be', but oh well...XD;

    They are putting some of the bigger names on there to start with to get people watching then after a while it will become more a mid-carder show is what I remember reading about the plan for it

    Exactly Nemesis: They're not gonna put something like Shad Gaspar Vs Kung Fu Naki as a main event on their debut show, as they know that no one will give a flying sh*t. For the first few weeks it will be top stars galore, then after a while it will just be whoever WWE can be bothered to put on it.

    I'm pretty certain that Christian beating Finlay was in the ECW Backlash tournament...so Christian will face Swagger at Backlash

    right?!
