Default What if? Pro Wrestling USA

In 1984 and 1985, it was clear that Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan and the WWF were taking wrestling to never before seen heights, they took wrestling national, this was completely against NWA's territorial system. In March 1985 Wrestlemania took WWF to another level, they had mainstream attention galore, due to celebrity involvement and MTV matches like War to settle the score. In an attempt to challenge the WWF, NWA promotions, such as JCP, WCCW, CWA and AWA got together to take on the WWF on a national level. The first major event happened in September 1985, which was Superclash, a resounding success that featured great match ups like Road Warriors vs Freebirds for AWA tag titles, Martel vs Hansen for AWA title and Ric Flair vs Magnum TA for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. Despite the success of Superclash, problems between Gagne of the AWA and Crockett of JCP soon escalated into Pro Wrestling USA declining and it instead turning into regular AWA programming.

The question I pose today, is what if Pro Wrestling USA had stayed to battle WWF during the Golden Era, how do you think this would have affected wrestling as a whole and the WWF? Would it have been able to compete, despite the massive amounts of mainstream attention the WWF had during that time?

I'm not usually a big fan of hypothetical situations, but in this case it really intrigued me, especially considering the depth and greatness of both Pro Wrestling USA and WWF rosters at the time.
