Wwe Superstars started April 2009 and Wwe Nxt started Febuary 2010. Wwe nxt replaced Ecw which was a great show.*
It was thought that this was going to be a great show showcasing some of the Wwe's best main talent. Let's look at the first ever show's matches:
Cody Rhodes def. Shane McMahon by disqualification*
Christian def. Finlay, earning the right to face ECW Champion Jack Swagger at Backlash*
Undertaker def. Matt Hardy by count-out; Jeff Hardy attacked his brother*
Now let's look at this week's matches:
* Mason Ryan defeated Drew McIntyre.
* Epico (w/ Primo and Rosa Mendes) defeated Evan Bourne
* Justin Gabriel defeated Tyson Kidd
* Jack Swagger defeated Trent Baretta*
I'm not saying that it needs to have all the main eventers on it but *they made it out to be more like that.
Nxt started and it was great at first. We had *popular superstars as the mentors and we got: Justin Gabriel,Wade Barett and Daniel Bryan out of it.
Lets look at the series 1 contestants and mentors:
Wade Barrett with*Chris Jericho
David Otunga with*R Truth*
Justin Gabriel with*Matt Hardy
Heath Slater with*Christian
Darren Young with*CM Punk
Skip Sheffield with*William Regal
Daniel Bryan with*The Miz
Michael Tarver with*Carlito
Now the current series contestants and mentors:
*Derrick Bateman with*Daniel Bryan
Darren Young with*Chavo Guerrero
Conor O'Brian with*Vladimir Kozlov
Lucky Cannon with*Tyson Kid*
Byron Saxton with*Yoshi Tatsu
Jacob Novak with*JTG
Look at the pros on the first season compared to the current season.
Now let's look at what's happened to the winners:
Has had great success and is now one of the best superstars who will soon be on the championship scene.
Invoked his championship shot and lost. Was released from his contract in December. Although Alex Riley has been successful.
Went into the tag team Chickbusters, she's done quite well.
Has not really done everything and has never been able to invoke his tag team championship match.
All I'm saying is I don't think wwe should ever of gotten rid of Ecw. The reality of wwe superstars and wwe Nxt turned out to be completely different to how it was planned and I wouldn't mind a new show to be a 3rd brand. This brand could showcase all the talent that doesn't get much tv time there could be a championship so some of these superstars could hasp pear at paper views.
The potential for both these shows was great but Wwe failed to deliver with them.
I look forward to reading your comments
