Ten Sports launches WWE show 'Superstars'

MUMBAI: Ten Sports is bolstering its relationship with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) with a new show, WWE Superstars. It airs today at 4:30 pm.

This will be the 4th show of the week to feature `live’ event content, along with the Raw, Smackdown and ECW programmes.

Ten Sports has an exclusive contract with WWE for seven years to show seven wrestling programmes a week. Superstars of the WWE world belong to three brands - RAW, Smackdown and ECW.

WWE Superstars will showcase the stars from all three brands, both male and female. The biggest stars of WWE Raw are John Cena, Kofi Kingston Kofi Sarkodie-Mensah, Big Show (Paul Wright) and Mickie James (female superstar referred to as a Diva).

Smackdown sports a different setting to Raw and ECW, where the wrestlers contest and fight for top honours. Some of the stars from the Smackdown brand are Chris Jericho(Christopher Irvine), CM Punk ( Phil Brooks), John Morrison(John Hennigan) and Michelle McCool (the Smackdown Diva)

ECW, the third brand of the professional wrestling entertainment world, was an independent professional wrestling promotion - Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). But on bankruptcy the WWE bought the assets of ECW and relaunched the Extreme Championship Wrestling franchise as a WWE brand in June 2006 to complement their existing Raw and SmackDown brands.

This brand was initially produced differently from WWE‘s other brands. The male performers were called "Wrestlers" and later "Extremists" as opposed to "Superstars" while female performers were called "Vixens" as opposed to Divas. But the brand is now produced following the same format of the other brands.
