EAW Showdown is a weekly television program for Elite Answers Wrestling. As of 2015, it airs on the EAW Network as EAW Saturday Night Showdown. The show's name is also used to refer to the brand, in which EAW employees are assigned to work and perform on that program; the other programs and brands currently being Dynasty and Voltage. It is currently the only television broadcast for the Showdown brand, though it features some Dynasty and Voltage wrestlers on occasion.

History

Showdown was the first brand made when EAW was resurrected and has since been known as EAW's "flagship brand". There were many brand names being thrown around at the time and originally the brand was going to be named "EAW Anarchy" but it was later changed due to many within the company disagreeing with the name "Anarchy". Showdown had its first show on January 19th 2008 which featured the debuts of stars such as Captain Charisma and RRS, who swept the EAW Awards in 2008 because of their illustrious feud. Many regard Showdown as the turning point of Y!Answers-Based efederations because of its role in creating such a successful feud in RRS vs. Captain Charisma. However, Showdown's success did not stop when its top feud halted. Rather, it showcased veterans as well as continued to push the envelope for new-comers. Showdown has since given birth to some of EAW's biggest stars and served as the home of many. EAW Showdown has had several writers during its long, successful history including Mr. DEDEDE, RRS, MaK, Mister K, and Brian Daniels, and Robbie V. The current head writer and booker is Diamond Cage.

Production

The Showdown set that has been used since the program's inception is the same HD set that is utilized by the other EAW weekly shows. For the opening of the show, blue and white pyrotechnics are used.
