Jim Crockett Jr. was ambitious, courageous and a force in our sport. I wish we all could’ve enjoyed more of his presence as we all would’ve been better for it. I’m forever inspired by JCP, his tenacity and rebel approach against an adversary with deep pockets. RIP, Mr. Crockett. https://t.co/53Wsy4Ty1c— Court Bauer (@courtbauer) March 4, 2021
