I was fishing through another news/rumor site and ran across this report......
Chad Ruffner sent an e-mail to WGN America concerning replays of WWE Superstars. The e-mail response noted the following:

“Our final airing of ‘WWE Superstars’ is Thursday, April 7.”

According to ProWrestling.net, WGN America confirmed that WWE Superstars has been canceled. Additional information was not provided.

WWE Superstars debuted on April 16, 2009.

And this was one of the shows that I forgot about in one of my "wall of text" rants earlier in the day. This is the 12th hour show on TV for wrestling. It's a start by cutting it, but truth be told, kats are saying that it showcased the dudes that could actually wrestle on the show. IDK, but it shows how the WWE has 🤬 up the mindframe of the watchers when the show that showcases actual wrestling gets canceled, but the shows that display 🤬 are on for 20 years.

    Too bad I liked seeing the mix of up and comers and vets go at it. So what are Chris Masters, Tyler Reks, Yoshi Tatsu, and Zack Ryder gonna be doing now?

    On second thought, it'll probably just be a web show like NXT now.

    update on the cancellation of Superstars
    Regarding WGN America’s cancellation of WWE Superstars, the Chicago-based superstation didn’t feel they were getting what they paid for, which was a program near the level of Monday Night Raw. WGN agreed to carry the show in late 2008 with the hope it would bring ratings to their national feed, which does not have substantial clearance across cable systems in the United States.

    While WWE Superstars initially featured top tier talent such as John Cena, Edge and John Morrison, it was clear from the beginning that it was a show of little consequence. For instance, the program sparingly featured storylines. Within a matter of time, it became the modern day equivalent of Sunday Night Heat, a television showcase for the organization’s preliminary talent; Zack Ryder, Tyler Reks, Primo and the brothers Uso were regularly featured in starring roles. Meanwhile, the show’s lackluster ratings were indicative of how both fans and officials alike saw it as.

    Due to last month’s poor financial quarters, company officials have discussed cutting ties with a number of bottom level wrestlers following Wrestlemania XXVII as a cost-cutting measure.

    This is just an excuse of endeavoring some of the talent. If they got relegated down to this show in the first place, the WWE has no plans for them at that point, and they might as well as for their own release.
