Vince McMahon definitely wanted to bury all competition, regardless of the financial standings of other promotions. When the AWA put on their first PPV in 1988, the WWE tried to prevent it, by bringing up an obscure Illinois state law regarding boxers/wrestlers with amputations (Kerry Von Erich's foot had been amputated in 1986). The AWA by 1988 was on it's death bed, and was not a threat to the WWE.Obviously WWF were getting better attendances than JCP. That's not a dispute.but to say JCP weren't competition is simply wrong. Vince wouldn't have gone to such extreme measures if JCP weren't doing well.
