A look at WWE Superstars and NXT

Rate this Entry
Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown are the two shows that feature the top WWE Superstars in action. But what about the two other shows: WWE Superstars and WWE NXT?


WWE Superstars premiered on WGN on April 16, 2009. It's a show like WWE Heat and WWE Velocity, a show that gives lesser-known Superstars a chance to compete.

Among the Superstars who frequently appear on the show are Alex Riley, Michael McGillicutty, Tyson Kidd, Curt Hawkins, Tyler Reks, Mason Ryan, Trent Barreta, JTG, Yoshi Tatsu, and the Divas.

By contrast, Superstars such as John Cena, Randy Orton, Triple H, The Miz, Cody Rhodes, Sheamus, Big Show, Kane, Alberto Del Rio, and Rey Mysterio almost never appear on WWE Superstars at all (Rhodes did make occasional appearances on the show but is too big to appear on the show these days).

WWE NXT premiered on February 23, 2010 on SyFy. The original format featured FCW Superstars (Rookies) paired with WWE Superstars (Pros) in a contest to determine WWE's breakout star. Wade Barrett won the first season and would go on to lead both The Nexus and The Corre, becoming one of the top heels in the process. Subsequent winners Kaval, Kaitlyn, and Johnny Curtis haven't fared as well with Kaval getting "future endeavored" simply because he got no reaction from the WWE Universe and WWE officials weren't high on him.

With a lack of potential FCW Superstars moving up to the big leagues and avoiding another WWE NXT winner turned former WWE Superstar, the WWE decided to change the format by bringing lower-card talent and former NXT talent to help salvage the show. And so far, it's worked. It gives guys like Hawkins, JTG, Reks, Kidd, and Maxine some TV time they normally wouldn't get from RAW and SmackDown.

What does the future hold for WWE Superstars and WWE NXT? only time will tell.
