Ric Flair & Tony Schiavone Pay Tribute To The Late Jim Crockett Jr.

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair took to Twitter today, paying tribute to the late Jim Crockett Jr. He said,

“I Moved To Charlotte In 1974 With $150 In My Pocket. Jimmy Crockett Was My Friend And My Boss. I Can’t Put Into Words How Much He Did For Me And My Career. His Influence And Persistence Helped Me Become The World Champion. My Thoughts And Prayers Are With The Crockett Family!”

AEW’s Tony Schiavone also took to Twitter to pay tribute, saying,

“Today my heart breaks with the passing of Jim Crockett. Everything I have become, professionally is because of him and his family. His sister, Frances, hired me to do baseball in 1982, a year later, Jimmy decided to give me a shot at wrestling. He made me what I am today.”
