JCP question


Hi Scott, I was wondering if Vince doesn't put on the first Survivor
Series to screw with Crockett do you think Starrcade would've done
well enough to have helped them survive? Or would Dusty's booking and
Crockett's overspending have doomed them in the ling run anyways? Just
curious on your thoughts. Thanks.

The PPV model wasn't even a thing in 87.  Starrcade might have done well on its own (although really, Flair v. Garvin?  Doubtful.) but regardless all the money for the promotion was still being made on the house show circuit.  Crockett's demise came about, as you noted, from insane overspending that would have driven them out of business and into the arms of Turner no matter what.
