    I was surprised to stumble upon this card. Shawn and Marty were only in their 4th or 5th month in the AWA and not yet headlining, but here Shawn is fighting the World champ. Any details how this came about?

    What's funny, is I'm pretty sure those are typos. Bruiser Brody was "King Kong Brody", and Marty Jannetty has never been known as Monty, as far as I know.

    Mr. Perfect, Razor Ramon and Vader was a powerful team.

    True, but atleast they were close with hers.

    It's like the Fire Pro Wrestling games where they slightly changed everyone's names to avoid trademark issues.

    Is the Barberian some kind of barbarian barber? Sounds like a tag team between The Barbarian and Brutus Beefcake.

    [It's a heck of a card especially with all the misspelled names. This must be 1986 but I have no clue why Shawn was wrestling Stan Hansen. I have never heard of Shawn wrestling Stan so I wonder if it ever went through? I believe Steve Austin had Shawn on his show and Hansen's name came up along with Brody and they both talked about what tough guys they were and what it would've been like to wrestle those guys or have those guys in the business today. I could be mistaken though.
