For decades wrestling was treated like a sport or like a touring circus nothing really more that but that changed when Vince McMahon Jr entered the business. He left the National Wrestling Alliance and began his push to go national. He bought as many promotions as he could and made a lot of money, stars and enemies from it. There was no doubt that at this time the World Wrestling Federation and the NWA were at a COLD WAR. "HE DECLARED WAR WHEN HE LEFT THE ALLIANCE..." But Vince wasn't the only one to leave, shortly after the American Wrestling Association left as well and began to put more doubt in NWA loyalist minds as to whether or not the NWA could succeed. The head-base for the NWA was Jim Crockett Promotions led by Jim Crockett Jr who at the time was the President of the NWA. Crockett saw the writing on the wall and it looked like they were on the road to lose the COLD WAR so as a last ditched attempt he pushed James J Dillon as the head-booker of JCP. "I WAS FURIOUS WHEN HE TOLD ME BABY..." As expected this did not go down well for the previous head-booker Dusty Rhodes. Dusty began to politic and plan to get his own position back, hell not just that. Dusty wanted the whole company to himself. Unlucky for the NWA Dusty wasn't the only one scheming and planning, as you will see many men and women made the push for the lead job in the wrestling world. How could the company win the COLD WAR when it was at war with itself?? "NO-ONE COULD HAVE TOUCHED ME, I HAD THE HORSEMEN IN MY BACK POCKET ..." In this story you will see as that one decision changed the lives of many. This is a story about success and failure. This is a story where the politics backstage at the NWA are just as important as the stories told on screen. http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm30/The_CoC/Cold%20War%20v2_zpsubzypmiq.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
