A few more notes of interest:

- Foster Auditorium is on the University of Alabama campus it at one time hosted Crimson Tide men's basketball and still hosts women's basketball and volleyball.

- Mike Jackson was indeed billed as Alabama Junior Heavyweight Champion and his match was promoted as having that title on the line.

- The Spoiler was billed as being 6'7" 283 lbs., a card like this makes me think otherwise, but that at least suggests that it's really Jardine. He was mostly retired by 1987, however.

- Kevin Dillinger was Alan Martin who did a lot of TV jobs for JCP around this time.

- Just a hunch, but The Black Road Warrior was probably Bill Tabb whose ring gear strongly emulated those of Hawk and Animal.

- Giant Hillbilly was Stan Frazier. Who was Hillbilly Vic?

- I'd venture that this particular Nightmare was Ted Allen since Danny Davis and Ken Wayne were working for Continental at the time.

- I very strongly doubt that Ragin Bull was Manny Fernandez, but can't offer alternatives.

- No promotion is noted. Who put this card together?

I don't think this is WOW. Early 1987 seems a bit early for this promotion. It's also missing many of the WOW stalwarts.
