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.

Throw back to Wrestling's better days
14 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WWF Primetime was the precursor to Raw. While the syndicated shows like Challenge and Superstars (Superstars was syn dictated from 1986-1999)Primetime would offer more stars vs stars, instead of stars versus prelim wrestlers. This was also the time of the prelims were just that, instead of local wrestlers. The WWF actually had a crew of jobber wrestler who traveled from town to town, and got paid to lose. Those days are long gone now. Now shows are more about back stage skits versus wrestling. During Primetime, you got at least 8 or ten matches per show. Now in a two hour Raw show, you're Lucky to get 4 or 5 matches. There are several shows available on VHS thru Wrestling conventions and tape trade shows.
