WWE Superstars is a professional wrestling television program for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that is currently airing on WGN America in the United Statesmarker. It debuted on April 16, 2009. The show features WWE talent from all three brands: Raw, ECW, and SmackDown.

Show history

On December 19, 2008, WWE and WGN America announced an agreement to create a new weekly, one-hour prime time series entitled WWE Superstars that was to debut in April 2009. The show features stars from all three WWE brands. In early 2009, WGN put out a press release hyping the revived series and revealed its new time slot for its debut. Superstars airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. eastern time and at 5 p.m. pacific time. A replay airs at noon on Sundays on both WGN America and WGN-TV. Superstars had its debut show on April 16, 2009.

Production

The theme song for the WWE Superstars is "Invincible" by Adelitas Way. WWE Superstars currently uses the same universal WWE entrance set that has been used for WWE's primary television programs Raw, ECW, and SmackDown, since January 2008. Although WWE promotes the series as a television program that takes place during one night, in reality, the matches that are set for the event are taped earlier than the broadcast day. These matches are taped during the Raw, ECW, and SmackDown recordings on Mondays and Tuesdays, respectively, and are then aired Thursdays during Superstars. As a result, the show features brand-specific commentary throughout the show, as each brand's respective commentators announce the match for their particular show.
