Default Jet Planes & Long Limousines (Crockett Promotions 1987)

Jet Planes & Long Limousines!


This is the story of Jim Crockett Promotions...

Author's Notes


The Data: I'm using Genadi and The Mod Squad's The Golden Age data set, playing as JCP. Jim Crockett will be my user character--but I don't expect that to impact the diary in any significant way. In the interest of full disclosure, I have modified the data slightly. I have increased starting pop for JCP in several regions of the US as I felt the data was a bit unfair the NWA's starting popularity in 1987. By that time JCP had been running hot on TBS nationwide for over 3 years. I also took WCW out of the data as I didn't want to have to compete with a weird version of my own promotion.

I have made a few other minor adjustments as well, chiefly giving Dusty loyalty to JCP. It's been my experience that it's only Dusty's booker position that prevents the WWF from signing him away. Just because I'm playing as Crockett, I feel I shouldn't be cheated out of Dusty as a character.

That said, big thanks to Genadi and the Mod Squad for all their work in creating this data!

What to Expect: I do plan to keep this diary as authentic to the time period as possible while simultaneously departing from history. Basically don't expect to see a lot of non-traditional gimmick matches or an over-signing a lot of future superstar guys early on (ex: Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, etc.) as, to me, they don't fit the time period. Some of those guys may trickle in if the diary lives long enough...we shall see.

Also, I have burned out on past diaries by over-writing my weekly TV shows. I am going to scale them down for this diary and see if that helps extend the life of this project.

Prediction Contests: I'd like to have a prediction contest. Once the details are ironed out, I will post the rules and prizes.

My Experience: I have written a handful of diaries in the past, including one NWA 1987 diary for TEW 13. I have some different ideas that my TEW '13 iteration of this project, so it should flow a lot differently.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to check this out and hopefully it's an enjoyable read. Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts on the happenings in the diary as well as layout. Constructive criticism is appreciated as much as (if not more than) compliments!

March Week 1 1987
JCP News
-The Crockett group is planning a "major network event" to run head to head with Wrestlemania III in a few weeks. I'm hearing that the tentative name for the show will be "Clash of the Champions" and will be aired for free on TBS. No word yet on the matches penciled in for the card.

-JCP are looking to lock up a few key workers to written contracts, specifically the Road Warriors. Crockett is worried of conflicting dates in Japan. Nikita Koloff is another talent being identified for a potential written contract extension.

-Head booker Dusty Rhodes has officially canned the Women's division.

-Dark Journey has quietly been released from the company.

-Contracts have been offered to veterans Ed Sharkey and Killer Kowalski to serve as Road Agents. Referee Tommy Young has signed an exclusive contract with the Crockett group as well.

Prediction Contest Announcement!


Going to throw out a small prediction contest to get the ball rolling. This contest will run for the in-game month of March and will include 4 episodes of World Championship Wrestling and The Clash of the Champions event. To be eligible, you must predict on at least 2 episodes of WCW and the Clash event itself.

The winner will be able to pick a title contender from a predetermined pool of challengers from a yet unspecified belt.
