6/4/78 Milwaukee, WI @ Arena
Rufus R Jones beat AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel via pin in 22:00
Bob Orton Jr beat Jim Brunzell 15:00
Evan Johnson & Steve Olsonoski beat Pat Patterson & Ray Stevens dq (for jumping off the top rope)
Handicap match
George Gadaski & Frank Hill beat Lord Alfred Hayes
(Hayes must have needed to beat both men; Hayes pinned Gadaski but time ran out before he could beat Hill... original boutwas slated as Gadaski vs. Super Destroyer Mark II)
Pat O'Connor beat Jake Guzick 8:00 (this bout replaced a scheduled Angelo Mosca vs. Larry Hennig match)
att: 4,843
Note from George Lentz: Jones pinned Bockwinkel after Bockwinkel threw referee Larry Lisowski into a third Jones "Freight Train" attempt. Fans left the Arena thinking Jones was the new champ, but later Bockwinkel was DQ’ed and retained the belt.
(my lineup does list Bockwinkel as being DQ'ed but also lists Rufus' pinfall, so the "official" reverse uling must have been uttered at ringside as a formality, after fans exited)
