"History Personified"

Jul 8, 2016

Jim Crockett Promotions took the wrestling world by storm in the 1980's, and was growing at a rate that rivaled the World Wrestling Federation. However, they did it in a way that portrayed professional wrestling to its fans as a "real" sport. This capitalized on a fan base that was turned off by the WWF's cartoonish characters and celebrity crossovers. Ted Turner bought the company from JCP in the late 80's, and it took a few years for the new brand to find its footing. Once it did, WCW soared to new heights that even the WWF had never reached. Learn more about what took WCW to the top, and what toppled them, as we finish up our two-part series with author/journalist Graham Cawthon.
