I'd make superstars the show where graduating FCW'ers would go to get an idea what working on the big stage is like. It would also help acclimate the fans on who the new guys were.

Great idea! Kofi, Chavo, Bourne, Rey, Tyson Kidd, Yoshi, Gabriel, Slater, Cody, Mistico (when he comes). I'm forgetting people but shit there's a division there.

I'd rather FCW in more homes than have graduates going to superstars.

They don't air FCW on tv though because they think that the wrestlers there are still "green", or are still learning the WWE way of wrestling.
I'd like to see a cruiserweight-only show on Superstars. If we had a big roster like Raw/Smackdown..many people would be left off the card, resulting in people complaining. If we have a small roster of some lighter superstars, we could include most of them every week.

Look at it like this; there have to be people on the roster that know, they aren't ever going to get a shot at the big one(or ones) in WWE, possibly get a shot at the US or IC or tag belts somewhere down the road. So they're there for the paycheck. That's ok, nothing wrong with that, a guy (or girl) has gotta eat.

I actually like the idea of a Superstars roster. Have it factor into the draft (which I also like, I know a lot of people don't) where the most over wrestlers are 'bidded for' and 'wooed' by the Raw and Smackdown GMs. Hey, at least it's something new and different to watch. I don't like the way they try to pass the draft off as some sort of lottery.

Have the Divas, Tags, IC & US titles defended occasionally and yes, oh god yes, re-introduce the Cruiserweight belt!

This would be my Superstars roster:
Yoshi Tatsu/Zack Ryder/Darren Young/Chris Masters/Tyson Kidd/Evan Bourne/The Usos/David Hart Smith/William Regal/Vladimir Kozlov/Santino Marella/Michael Tarver/Primo/R-Truth/Great Khali/Mark Henry/Tyler Reks/Chavo Guerrero/Curt Hawkins/Trent Baretta/JTG

I mean, what are these guys achieving on the main roster? Nothing. Their matches are generally only shown on Superstars anyway, filmed dark matches before Raw and Smackdown anyway - having them listed on the roster is merely lip service. All this could be achieved with very little effort.

Khali is a novelty - he can't speak, wrestle or move - that's plain for all to see. But they should at least get some value out of him to put people over

Exactly, Khali is merely an attraction like Giant Gonzalez was. It's amazing to know that professional wrestling got it's start in carnivals and still carries aspects of it!

I dont know what the hell he's(Khali) doing on RAW,he definately deserves to be fired.They already have Mark henry on their roster, who can be used to putover people like Jackson,Mason,Skip sheffield and so on.And speaking of Khali he cant even walk down the ramp properly!

I think hes still around because apparently hes really popular with fans in India. You don't seem to like him. Do you think others there would?

Thanks. I would make this move in a second if I was WWE management. But being careful to not establish it as a 3rd brand - just a show with it's own roster. Thinking about the draft - imagine how you'd feel if you got drafted TO Superstars! Pretty low. But I don't see it working that way, people only go up and hire the new blood straight to Superstars from FCW or Indys or wherever, unless they are undoubtably a sure thing and can go straight to the main roster

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Does anyone remember that on the first episode we had Matt Hardy vs Undertaker as the opening match. Christian vs Finlay as the second match. And Shane McMahon vs Cody Rhodes as the main event.

Nah. It was on a Thrusday right after Wrestlemaina 25 That was the only episode that was great . Now all we get is jobbers from first match to main event. BTW, did anybody see the Curt Hawkins vs Tyler Recs match? Both wrestlers really need to be pushed.

I agree. I really like Reks, more than I do Mason Ryan or Big Zeke. Hawkins would be a great cruiserweight contender.

Reks has all the tools for becoming a monster heel he just came in a bad time where a lot of people is being pushed at the same time. Hopefully he will not get realease to soon, maybe later WWE could work on him. The guy has pottencial

Make it a cruiserweight show!

I just pitched this idea on another thread! It's definitely what I'd do. You can get 3/4 matches in on a Superstars show, and that's good time that could be used for a cruiserweight show. They might have to make the show a bit longer if they want to stick in promos etc for building storylines though.

That match was 14th or something on the top 25 matches of the year 2010 if my memory serves me!!

This plan has WIN written all over it. Doing this would make WWE money. Superstars doesn't even get 1.0 ratings anymore, giving it it's own roster, and having some titles defended on it, or making it a cruiserweight would make it an attraction, and a reason for people to watch it. I other words, it would bring in ratings!!

id rather watch it than tna!

Too many wrestlers water down the product.....Superstars should be delegated to Midcard status wrestlers at best, that dont get any mainstream TV time.....Superstars would be the perfect show to have a WWE TV title on.....and it stays strictly on this show

HuGrad
02-21-2011, 11:54 AM
interesting how they tried it with ECW and the idea wasnt supported well. As a third brand, i dont think it would work, and it wouldnt make sense to add a new title. If u had to do somethin like this, then any raw or smackdown wrestler not being used should be there. I wish they would re introduce the cruiserweight title to be defended on raw and smackdown, but then if u make it exclusive to Superstars, then it really wouldnt help boost someone's career.

captainmoonlight
02-21-2011, 11:55 AM
A tv title would be nice but could be defended on raw and smackdown as well just not paper views.

That way it has credibility but it can be defended mainly on superstar

Superstars should be a show, where mid-carders and low-carders get tv-time with their own storylines, just as if it was a actual brand, but without championships.
