WCW Prime was a professional wrestling show produced by World Championship Wrestling which aired on Mondays from 1995 to 1997. Along with WCW WorldWide and WCW Pro, it was part of the WCW Disney tapings (matches were, in fact, shot on the same set that WorldWide was using at the time). The rights to WCW Prime now belong to WWE.

Format

WCW Prime mainly featured mid-card matches. There wasn't much storyline advancement or main-event wrestlers on the show. Sometimes, matches from WCW WorldWide and WCW Saturday Night were featured, along with highlights from the major shows such as WCW Monday Nitro. The main event was referred to as the "Prime Match of the Week" on-air. The show was hosted by Dusty Rhodes and Chris Cruise, who was later replaced by Tony Schiavone. The show was a little more relaxed than the other programs, with lots of comedy on the commentary. For instance, right before the "Prime Match of the Week", Dusty Rhodes would call it the "Moo Match of the Week" and moo on-camera because of a dairy sponsorship.
