Evan Johnson beat Buck Zumhofe
Paul Ellering beat Kenny Jay



This result looks wrong.  Mark II and Mark III weren't in the area that early.  The undercard looks right but using Orton as a substitute seems wrong as well.

It is wrong. The correct card according to the late Jim Melby is

1/22/78 Minneapolis, MN

Angelo Mosca & Suoer Destroyer beat Greg Gagne & Bob Orton Jr (sub Jim Brunzell)
Rufus R Jones beat Blackjack Lanza

I'll check with The Authority George Schire just to be certain.

I just watched a YouTube link of the Mr. Saito attack on Hulk Hogan from 1983 and subsequent interviews promoting the house shows.   At the end there are a few screen caps of upcoming shows, three of which don't appear in your listings.  Something to investigate if you have the time:



Thursday, June 9, 1983 - Grantsburg, WI @ Grantsburg High School

Tuesday, June 14, 1983- Belle Plaine, MN @ the High School

Thursday, July 7, 1983- Rush City, MN @ the High School



Here's the link:

Here are a couple that I came across that I don't think you have:

2/13/69 – Redlake MN (High School)

Crusher vs Lars Anderson

Billy Red Lyons vs Butcher Vachon

Mad Dog Vachon vs Rene Goulet

 

10/29/70 – Fosston, MN (High School)

Mad Dog Vachon vs. Paul Diamond

Butcher Vachon vs. Billy Red Cloud

Kenny Jay vs. Dave Cox

 

Also, you have this as 4/9/69, but I show it as taking place on 4/3 (two different clippings)?

 

4/3/69 – Redlake MN (High School)

Lars Anderson DRAW Billy Red Lyons

Butcher Vachon def. Rene Goulet

Red Bastien & Billy Red Lyons def. Larry Hennig & Lars Anderson 2/3 via DQ

Great find. Those smaller town cards are hard to find and they have some interesting lineups that the big towns never got.

I have results for a similar sounding town on 4/1/69. I'm eventually just going to stick with the 4/3/69 date and eliminate the 4/1 and 4/9.

If it makes things easier for future research, the town listed as Redlake, MN is actually two words, Red Lake. The town is on Red Lake Indian Reservation. It's also one of the more deprived reservations you'll find and has a lot of social and crime problems. It interests me that the AWA would go there. On one hand you have little in the way of live entertainment to compete with. I'd guess TV reception was even an issue at the time. However, on the other hand, it strikes me as a bit far flung and the people there had little money at the time and really still don't.

Thanks for that info, I just took it for granted that the town was Redlake, as the newspaper I got the results / clippings from consistently spelled it that way.

I was on a mission trip to Red Lake some years ago and as Tamalie says...it's a pretty tough place. That being said, the AWA came through often and even had Mad Dog putting over Johnny War Eagle on one card!
