Special Episode: 35th Anniversary of the 1986 Crockett Cup – Part 1

Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast. Mike Sempervive returns with a very special edition of the show, celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the very first Jim Crockett Sr Memorial Cup Tag Team Tournament, held on April 19, 1986.

This is the first in a series of specials discussing the most prestigious tag team tournament of all-time. In this episode, Mike takes you through all of the lead-up and the fall-out of the show, by way of the promos aired on the television of both Jim Crockett Jr and Cowboy Bill Watts.

Some of the greatest interviews of all-time, by some of the best wrestling talent of all-time. The peak of Crockett Promotions intersects with the birth of the Universal Wrestling Federation and, over the course of four hours, we – and they – tell you how it all came together.

We hope you enjoy the show, and stay vigilant for the next podcast in this series!
