WWE Saturday Morning Slam was a professional wrestling television program that aired as part of the Vortexx Saturday morning block on The CW (Vortexx).

The series was intended for children and provides superstar profiles, behind-the-scenes footage, 1 or 2 exclusive matches, as well as highlighting WWE's community initiatives such as the "Be A Star" anti-bullying campaign. The series is also set to have a large focus on viewer interaction and social media (such as Tout, which WWE is an investor). The series marks the return of WWE programming on The CW (Vortexx), as the network previously aired Friday Night Smackdown from 2006-2008 (and from 1999-2006 on UPN, one of two networks which merged to form The CW (Vortexx) in 2006). The show is taped on Tuesday evenings, prior to the Friday Night Smackdown taping.

The show is rated TV-G (one level lower than WWE's usual TV-PG rating), and due to being aimed specifically at children, it does not feature any moves or holds aimed at the head or neck due to what is seen as their violent nature.

The series was originally renewed for a second season by both WWE and The CW (Vortexx) Network, but was later cancelled due to disagreements between WWE and the network
