I have Duncum listed as a sub for Bobby Heenan on the lineup rather than Bockwinkel.
Lord Littlebrook subbed for Little Tokyo.
I remember reading a post or two from the KM board that said this card was shown on live tv in Milwaukee. It was either that, or the main event was filmed by a local miwaukee tv station with clips being shown on the evening news.
I don't remember which is accurate.
The SD II-Hennig matches were off of a tv angle where SD II attacked Hennig during an arm wrestling challenge in the studio. Tape of this surfaced a few years back. I assume they went around the horn with various matches off of it.
