Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Crockett Cup '85: Second Round Matches One and Two.
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 first two matches in round two feature the Russian Team taking on Blackjack Mulligan and Wahoo McDaniel along with The Rock and Roll Express battling the Mega Maharishi and Kendo Nagasaki.
