Vince McMahon Jr. bought out his competition WCW in 2001. WCW was created when Ted Turner bought Jim Crockett Promotions in the late eighties. My question is, what would have happened, had Vince purchased his competition all the way back? Obviously, WCW would not have been there, but what other changes would have taken place? Which superstars would have risen to the top, and which would not have? How different would history have been?

Re: What if Jim Crockett Jr. sold his company to Vince McMahon Jr. instead of Ted Tur

Its impossible to say how different it would have been, it could have completely changed everything or everything may have worked out in a similar fashon with another company that Ted Turner would have bought. Who knows? Noone.

thats a good thinker question i mean if Turner never had JCP then WCW would of never come into play and help make the business great in the late 90s when they pushed Vince to make his company better. Imagine if the Hoursemen should up in WWF back in 1988 and feud with Hogan and Savage

Ric Flair would never have been the elite star he is now, he would have played second fiddle to Hogan. Steamboat might have had a chance but he would have suffered the same fate and lost in the shuffle. I think they might have eventually pushed Luger as that would have fit more what Vince liked as a champion back in that time. Might have also done quite a bit with Nikita Koloff also, plus Sid Vicious as Vince loved the hosses. The Four Horsemen would still have been a huge factor.

The tag team scene would have been freaking huge...you already had teams like the Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs. Add to that teams like the Freebirds, the Midnight Express, the Road Warriors, perhaps the Steiners, and Arn and Tully and that would have been just a tag team fan's wet dream come true. Although that means that Demolition vs. the Road Warriors would have happened sooner and Demolition would have been relegated to the scrap heap sooner than it was because you would have had the original in Animal and Hawk.

A few years down the road, though, and you don't have breakout names like Jericho, Benoit, Malenko, and possibly Eddie Guerrero. But that might have meant that ECW could have stood a chance to become the 2nd leading organization in wrestling and had a more prominent run than they did. Of course, Paul Heyman would have needed to find someone with the money to back it as he was horrible with $$$.
