Tony Schiavone and Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter return to pay tribute to legendary wrestling promoter Jim Crockett Jr, who passed away March 3rd. They tell the story of the rise of Crockett Promotions, how and when Jimmy took over the business after his father died, the arrival of Dusty Rhodes as booker, Ric Flair’s incredible popularity, why Crockett’s expansion with the purchase of the UWF from Bill Watts was really the beginning of the end, and the fight against the WWF. There are tales about the exorbitant private plane trips, the Starrcade sabotage by Vince McMahon, the battle for TV airtime, and the Dark Ages of Wrestling. Plus, Tony Schiavone shares personal stories about working for the Crocketts, and recounts his final conversation with Jimmy just days before he died.
