Storyline

The World Wrestling Federation's predecesor to "Monday Night RAW" and "Raw is War"; "WWF Prime-Time Wrestling" was a weekly two-hour program, which aired on the USA Network from 1986 to 1993. The program went through three distinct formats: 1. From 1986-1991, hosts Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan introduced matches and analyzed them afterward. 2. In 1991, the show used an audience participation-type format, with hosts Vince McMahon and Heenan. WWF wrestlers were the frequent guests. 3. From 1992-1993, McMahon, Heenan, Monsoon and two other members of the WWF cast (one a face, or good guy; the other a heel, or bad guy) participated in a roundtable discussion about the goings-on in the WWF. In all versions, the program featured wrestling matches, interviews, promos featuring WWF wrestlers, updates of current feuds and announcements of upcoming local and pay-per-view events.

Important Programme In WWF History
14 December 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

WWF Prime Time Wrestling's contribution to the WWF cannot be understated. It was the predecessor to Monday Night Raw (now called Raw) and was an integral part of WWF programming.

In the days when the WWF featured jobber matches on it's programming, Prime Time Wrestling actually featured some big matches. It examined feuds and conflicts and had loads of great angles which helped to stir interest in upcoming PPV's.

Another thing that Prime Time Wrestling had in it's later years was some fantastic and amusing skits in which we got to see another side to the WWF supertstars. One of my personal favourites from the early 1990's was where crazy tag team The Bushwhackers did their own weather bulletin.

Yes, WWF Prime Time Wrestling was a superb programme and it was a sad day when it ended. As stated earlier, it's contribution to wrestling cannot be understated. Prime Time Wrestling paved the way for Monday Night Raw (now Raw). It also could be considered to have paved the way for other shows such as Smackdown. Prime Time Wrestling was a one of a kind show which many wrestling organisations have emulated. If you can track down any episodes of Prime Time Wrestling, then you will be able to sit down and watch a rewarding and entertaining programme.
