I'm guessing it has something to do with the TBS timeslot and the Georgia Territory. Vince got the timeslot and a foothold into Georgia when Brisco jumped ship, and I think Crockett had to pay off Vince for the timeslot and to replace the WWF in the Omni, as the NWA didn't run in Atlanta during the year that Vince had TBS. Its only a guess, but in Vince's (warped) version of the world, that could explain how he sold the NWA to Crockett.

Originally posted by StaggerLeeI thought I was pretty knowledgeable about the old NWA and WWF. However, while watching my new Monday Night Wars dvd, Vince said that he had sold the NWA promotion to Crockett before making WWF big.
I feel like a moron, because, if true, I don't remember ever hearing about this. Anybody have any more info on this claim?
(short version) Vince bought the Georgia promtion, that's how he ended up on WTBS. Later, he sold the timeslot to Jim Crockett for $1 million.
