Crockett Cup | NWA/ROH
April 26 @ 7:00 PM EDT
NWA partners with Ring of Honor to carry on the history of the Crockett Cup in North Carolina on April 27th!
Thirty-three years ago, Jim Crockett Promotions partnered with Mid-South Wrestling to present the first ever Jim Crockett Sr. Memorial Cup in New Orleans, Louisiana. On April 27th, 2019, The National Wrestling Alliance (in association with The Crockett Foundation) will partner with Ring of Honor Wrestling to bring the classic tag-team tournament, The Crockett Cup, back to North Carolina at the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC.
The NWA originally announced the return of the Crockett Cup in October at the NWA 70th Anniversary Event. On that night, Nick Aldis defeated Cody Rhodes to regain the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. Which was the highest-grossing event in the history of the Nashville Fairgrounds. NWA President Billy Corgan made a commitment to honoring the tradition and legacy upon taking control of the famed organization.
“The NWA is known for the legends who have carried the famous Ten Pounds of Gold,” said Billy Corgan. “Jim Crockett Promotions built a foundation in the Mid-Atlantic region with their tag team wrestling in the 70s and 80s. The Crockett Cup in 1986 brought together the best tag teams in the world under one roof.
The first qualifiers for The Crockett Cup are The War Kings (Crimson and Jax Dane, managed by Road Warrior Animal). They defeated the team of Caleb Konley and Jay Bradley at New Years Clash, the pop up event on 1/5/19, and you can find full results for that show here.
Update- New Japan Pro Wrestling & CMLL will be sending teams to Crockett Cup on 4/27/19 in Concord, NC.
Update- The Main event for Crockett Cup will be NWA World Champion Nick Aldis vs Marty Scurll.
