Important Programme In WWF History
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.
