Let's try this again. I forgot to make the poll multiple choice.

Shotgun, Heat, WCW Saturday Night, Nitro, Thunder.

And even though they weren't options, I also watched RAW & SMACKDOWN every week too.

Sunday Night Heat and Velocity.

Sunday night heat should just be brought back and renamed "Filler Dark Matches"

I watched them all, probably Velocity was the only one I didn't see regularly.

I also watched Worldwide. So that's Superstars, Wrestling Challenge, Heat (for the first year), Saturday Night, Nitro, and Thunder. When Worldwide started running as a recap show I stopped watching it.

Nitro and Thunder pretty much. Raw and Smackdown from the WWF side with some Heat mixed in there.

Started watching wrestling in like 6th grade which I think was like 2003/2004 so the only ones of those I watched were Velocity and Heat. Heat was the best when it was live before PPV's because I was never able to buy the PPV's.

Also should make mention of WCCW (the Texas based promotion out of the Sportatorium owned by the Von Erichs), UWF (where I first heard Jim Ross) and, of course, ECW.

This, it used to come on right after Stampede Wrestling.

We'd go from watching a blood fued between the Dynamite Kid and Steve Disalvo versus the Hart Mafia, and Lethal Larry Cameron versus Davey Boy Smith to watching Hulk Hogan vs Rene Goulet, and King Kong Bundy vs SD Special Delivery Jones.

Didn't watch wrestling until 1995, was a bigger WWF/E fan than WCW which is why I even watched showed like Shotgun, Metal etc..

WWF/E: RAW, Smackdown, Velocity, Shotgun, Heat I watched most of the episodes if not all. Caught Jakked/Metal at times. Other shows include NXT, Superstars (only when it was on WGN), ECW (SyFy), Tough Enough and Confidential

WCW: Nitro, Thunder and occassionally Saturday Night

In terms of others I caught ECW Hardcore TV when I could (came on very late here, like 2 or 3 AM) and ECW on TNN

There are some (Prime Time, Velocity) that I watched a bit of, but not enough to vote on it. I was born in 87 but being the youngest of the family my brothers had wrestling on TV. If the guy was Canadian, I was cheering for him. That holds true today. As a kid, I didn't realize that Heat was a lesser show, I liked a lot of the lower card guys at the time so I was just as excited sitting down to watch that.

While I was mostly a Raw guy, I think every wrestling fan of the 90's flipped back and forth between programs even if they preferred one show over the other.

Each one of them except Prime Time Wrestling(was only 9 or 10 the last time it aired and if it was on cable I didn't have it).
