Crockett Cup '85: Second Round Matches Three and Four.

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.

Round One is over and now it's time for the winners of round one to battle the 16 teams that received first-round byes.

The next two matches in round two pit four incredible teams. In our first encounter, Ole and Arn Anderson will battle Barry Windham and Mike Rotunda while the second one pits Marty Jannetty and “Bulldog” Bob Brown against Antonio Inoki and Seiji Sakaguchi.

Which teams will advance to round three?
