CWA, JCP, & CWG merger (1985)


Crockett bought out Ole Anderson's CWG, on April 6, 1985, and was re-elected NWA president. This was to help counter the WWF after it became the dominant wrestling business after the first WrestleMania occurred. He then purchased both Saturday evening TBS slots from Vince McMahon, who needed extra money to create Saturday Night's Main Event, thus making Crockett the owner of WCW.
