A Show
For most professional wrestling organizations, the "A Show" is where only the big name talents compete on the show.

Also known as the flagship show, the A Show is the show that draws the biggest ratings.


Examples

  • Raw is WWE's flagship show which originally featured Superstars and Divas from the RAW roster. Today, it features big names such as John Cena, CM Punk, Triple H, Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, the Rock, Sheamus, and many more. Raw has always been called the flagship since its inception but in reality, this has not always been the case. For awhile, Smackdown was moved into a separate brand with its own B show in Velocity and consistently got better ratings than Raw up until it was Screwed by the Network.
  • TNA has of course, Impact Wrestling.
  • WCW used to air WCW Monday Nitro during the Monday Night Wars until it was cancelled by TNT as a result of overhauling its program lineup.
