This article is about the professional wrestling pay-per-view event. For the Super NES video game named after this event, see WCW SuperBrawl Wrestling.

SuperBrawl was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view event in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) during the month of February (and in May in 1991) from 1991 through 2001. Along with Starrcade, Bash at the Beach, The Great American Bash and Halloween Havoc, SuperBrawl was booked to be one of WCW's flagship pay-per-views. The first SuperBrawl was in May but it switched to its annual month of February in 1992. It was the next to last WCW PPV and has the rights since owned by the WWE after it bought the promotion's intellectual properties in March 2001. Sting holds the record for most appearances at the pay-per-view with eight SuperBrawls.
