Wanz toured the AWA in 1981?

He's on the card for the 1982 Winnipeg battleroyal, perhaps it's that one instead?

10/21/82 Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada @ Arena
Andre The Giant won battle royal
Andre The Giant & Ray Stevens beat Ken Patera & Bobby Heenan
Hulk Hogan beat Adrian Adonis
AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel beat Jim Brunzell dq
Otto Wanz no contest Jerry Blackwell
Brad Rheingans beat Sgt Jacques Goulet
Att: 12,512

I think 1982 is right; I saw much of the same crew sans Wanz three days later in Green Bay.  The ID for me is Larry Hennig, who had been inactive/retired for much of the previous three or four years.

Larry did some reffing and wrestling on the next card or two in Winnipeg after that in 1982 as well.
