WWE Superstars is no more.
With the debut of WWE's new cruiserweight-only show 205 Live, the company has canceled one of its other network-exclusive shows. The news began circulating on Monday, but was confirmed on Tuesday by PWInsider.
"Internally, the change is being seen as a way of replacing one series with another that will add greater value to WWE Network subscriptions," the PWInsider report stated.
WWE Superstars debuted on WGN America back in April 2009. The first show featured The Undertaker vs. Matt Hardy as well as Cody Rhodes against Shane McMahon. As the show continued through the years, it became more of a Sunday Night Heat-like show featuring low-to-mid card superstars. The final episode of Superstars featured Bo Dallas against Curtis Axel.
With the news of Superstars' cancelation, it was revealed that WWE Main Event will now be taped prior to RAW every Monday. 205 Live, on the other hand, will be shown live on the WWE Network every Tuesday night after SmackDown goes off the air on the USA Network.
