He would be a month shy of being a wrestler 4 years at the time of the card. It could be because he just came back to AWA from WWF & Pacific Northwest

Hennig did very little in the WWF and no AWA fan would know about him from PNW, where I believe he was mostly just teaming with his father anyway (although they did win the PNW Tag titles together).

Or it could be that the AWA just followed the same protocol they had since inception for their young guys to pay their dues and/or make an extra few bucks.  I have some AWA shows that had Iron Sheik as ref and it was either 1976 or 1977 I think.

Mike Enos and Wayne Bloom both reffed.  Steve O would ref.   Kenny Jay too.   Yeah, it was pretty typical.

7th day Hidden Gems (Thursday)

Below is the synopsis for the upcoming AWA event coming to the Hidden Gems section:

AWA 12/25/1984 – AWA Christmas Night 1984 [Duration: 01:44:01]
All of your favorite AWA Superstars including Curt Hennig, Nick Bockwinkel, and Bruiser Brody are featured on this Christmas spectacular.
With Day 7 on the horizon, another video will be coming from the AWA. As mentioned previously, the AWA is a section many have felt has been disappointing on the streaming service and shamefully neglected, but these Hidden Gems have really focused quite a bit on the promotion. And this may be the best video yet, as it will be nearly two hours in length clocking in at one hour and forty four minutes long. The synopsis mentions two matches from the lineup in particular, though most if not all of the card will likely be available.

Below is the card for the event that took place that night:

Billy Robinson vs. Steve Olsonoski
Steve Regal vs. Baron Von Raschke
Mr. Saito vs. Jim Brunzell
Curt Hennig vs. Nick Bockwinkel
Jerry Blackwell and Greg Gagne vs. Bruiser Brody and The Masked Superstar
Road Warriors vs. The Fabulous Ones
Rick Martel vs. Jimmy Garvin

The Card is up 


Billy Robinson vs. Steve Olsonoski
Steve Regal vs. Baron Von Raschke
Mr. Saito vs. Jim Brunzell
Curt Hennig vs. Nick Bockwinkel
Jerry Blackwell and Greg Gagne vs. Bruiser Brody and The Masked Superstar
Rick Martel vs. Jimmy Garvin

When Rose refereed under his real name Paul Perschmann he had brown hair and was fairly slender by his standards. It is amazing how much he blew up later in his career.

I wonder why they cut Road Warriors vs Fabulous Ones out of this show? I can't imagine that anything happened that they wouldn't want to show.

The thing is, the people who are interested in watching this card are also likely, like us, to be checking the upload against the card. I'd be happy for them just to mute the audio when the music is playing, rather that miss the match. The demographic who are into the older stuff are very much completionists, and something is always better than nothing.

There is zero reason why they couldn't air the Road Warriors vs. the Fabs. If the music was the problem, the answer was to do what WWE Network has done with numerous matches from the era which was to edit off the entrances to just show things bell to bell. The AWA didn't air the music after the finishes so that shouldn't have been a problem at all. Watch World Class on WWE Network for instance. The entrances and music are all edited out. They just go to the introductions with the wrestlers already in the ring.

Just show the entrances and dub some generic instrumental music over the original.  I’ve watched a year’s worth of the World Championship Wrestling Saturday Night show from the old 24/7 feed.  Smooth Operator for Rude is dubbed over.  Sharp Dressed Man is dubbed over for Jimmy Garvin.  The Midnight Express theme song is dubbed over.  It’s not a big deal, and at some point the new songs just fit fine.  I’d rather have all of the matches than missing one.  That drives me insane.

9th day of Hidden Jems (Saturday)

WWEnetworknews.com

AWA 12/25/1986 – AWA Brawl in St. Paul [Duration: 01:42:24]
It’s a St. Paul Steel Cage Showdown when Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty look to grab AWA tag team gold on Christmas Night 1986.

AWA is the most prominent promotion for these 12 Days of Hidden Gems, which excites many due to the lack of AWA content currently available within the archives. Those looking forward to more content from the classic promotion are in luck as this 1986 show clocks in at over an hour and forty minutes in length and is headlined by a young Shawn Michaels teaming with Marty Jannetty to battle Buddy Rose and Doug Somers in a steel cage match.

Of course, of the seven matches reported to have taken place that night it’s not currently known how much will be included in this release, but at the length it has it’s likely the majority of the contests will be made available. It’ll also be interesting to see if another Buck Zumhofe match is cut, as it could be a sign that some of his matches are being avoided due to the controversy and legal trouble surrounding the former AWA star. Despite that, he is seen across numerous WWE Network programs.

Below is a list of matches that took place that night, though it’s not confirmed which will be featured:

Buddy Wolfe vs. Buck Zumhofe.
Earthquake Ferris vs. Brian Knobbs.
Boris Zhukov vs. Steve O.
Leon White, Greg Gagne, and Scott Hall vs. Mr. Saito, The Super Ninja, and Larry Zbyszko.
Nick Bockwinkel vs. Curt Hennig.
Jimmy Snuka vs. Col. DeBeers.
Steel Cage: The Midnight Rockers vs. Buddy Rose and Doug Somers.

Pretty sure I’ve seen that entire ‘86 show before on the old COD 24/7. Surprising it hasn’t been uploaded until now.

I think you are right and if I remember correctly, there was some weird video glitch associated with it.  Perhaps the glitch was due to WWE 24/7 at the time or perhaps it was the source tape.  I guess we'll see.
