WWF Prime Time – April 28, 1986

Three weeks after Wrestlemania II, we finally get into the Prime Time Wrestling series. Wish they had the first year of the show, but we start here. Prime Time is the predecessor to Monday Night Raw, and started in 1985 and ran until one week before RAW debuted in 1993.

White Wolf would be later known as General Adnan in the WWF with Sgt. Slaughter in 1990. There was still no IC title yet, the title would be formed a little over two years later. Hopefully this show will have some better matches then the 1975 show, as it is over two hours long so there should be more then four match. Let’s send it down to ringside. Continue reading
