Just over one year ago, World Wrestling Entertainment made the ingenious decision to reboot one of their most cherished properties.
In an age where the Survivor Series has lost as much meaning as the traditional DDT, classic wrestling fans around the world were allowed to rejoice once a week in celebration of WWE Superstars.
Maybe you’re new to the game and haven’t the slightest idea why Superstars was so special. Each and every weekend, for just an hour, viewers were treated to splendid action from around the roster in an effort to further the product.
No major gimmicks, no intricate stories to bore you with. Generally speaking, it was wrestling, wrestling, and more wrestling.
If asked what the best wrestling program on television is in 2010, the answer, obviously, is Superstars. With that in mind, we take a look at the WWE’s best and brightest who made the first year of Superstars a “vintage” one.
-Each star needed to compete in a minimum of 7 matches throughout the first 52 weeks of WWE Superstars. Inactive and/or released Superstars were included in this list for historical accuracy. 28 men met the requirements.
-They are ranked individually based upon their overall record and match count.
-Wins and Losses were counted in both singles and tag team matches. Tag team winners were each charged with a victory while losers were each charged with a loss. In the event of a Double-DQ or No-Contest, a tie was instituted into the record.
