Crockett Cup '85: First Round Matches Nine and Ten.


I'm excited to announce I'm contributing a special series for one of my favorite wrestling sites, the Mid-Atlantic Gateway.

The Jim Crockett Memorial Tag Team Tournament 1985- Did You Say 1985?

It’s time to take a look at one of wrestling’s biggest events from the mid-80s and see what it might have been like with a few historical alterations. What if Jim Crockett Promotions hosted its tag team tournament the Crockett Cup in 1985 and included teams from promotions outside the National Wrestling Alliance (“NWA”) including the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), the American Wrestling Association (AWA), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), All Japan Pro Wrestling, and more? In this case, you’d have 48 of the greatest tag teams in the world battling in a winner take all tournament for $1,000,000 and the prestigious Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup Trophy.

Matches nine and ten feature:

Mike Graham/Brian Blair vs. Ted DiBiase/Steve Williams

Jimmy Valiant/Bugsy McGraw vs. Jerry Lawler/Bill Dundee
