Yep 3/22 in El Paso last date for Condrey. 4/4 in Boston first house show match for Lane. Lane also appeared on the 4/4/87 edition of TBS Saturday Night Wrestling.

Bubba was one of Dusty's projects, so it's not odd that he would put him in the main event. Also there was an established feud with the Midnights/Bubba/Cornette vs Dusty/TA/Baby Doll thru most of 86, so it's not like he just decided to randomly match himself up there.

I would also add that Dusty had a HUGE fan base up in the Northeast from his time working shows on top for the WWWF/WWF, so I would think Dusty would have been the main drawing feature for that Boston card.
Claw, do you have any previous listing for Crocket in the Boston area? I wonder how many times they appeared there before then?

i know that bubba was a pet project of the fat man.  to me you still have the nwa title as the main event and the fat man could be the semi-main.  flair-windham or the road warriors- midnight should have been higher then dusty.  dusty wrestling a bodyguard doesn't scream main event to me.

Thanks a lot Claw, but shouldn't that be "Thunderfeet"?

My thought process is that they usually booked a cage match as the main event because of the downtime involved in its setup and teardown.  Two intermissions on each side of a match wasn't the norm when they tried to position a cage match as the deciding bout for a feud.   And sometimes, a card listing isn't always posted in sequential order (but I don't think that's the case here).

It seems to really piss off a lot of smart fans because he was a fat guy who wasn't a great worker, but Dusty was really over to the point that him being in the main event was justified even if he did have the book.

Why was Condrey replaced by Lane?

Condrey just walked off the face of the earth (I think Cornette said somewhere  that he didn't even know it was going to happen,  Dennis was just gone one day) and Stan Lane had just finished up his run as half of the Fabulous Ones.
