Steve Olsonoski beat Dick Reynolds (sub for Doug Gilbert) via pin in 17:22; Marty Miller referee
Paul Ellering beat Peter Sandor Szabo in 8:02 by bearhug submission; Marty Miller referee; lineup listed him as Richy Sabo from Canada; may have been booker's choice of Ron Richie (who worked in Chicago that night) or Szabo when lineup was typed.
Att: 4,856

I'll check this card on Google News.

From the Monday August 27, 1979 edition of the Milwaukee Sentinel,

Nick Bockwinkel defeated Greg Gagne in the main event of a pro wrestling card at the Auditorium Saturday night.

In other matches before a crowd of 4,856 fans, the tag team of Dick The Bruiser and Billy Robinson beat Bobby Duncum and Stan Hansen when Robinson pinned Hansen.

Jesse Ventura pinned Doctor X. Steve Olsonoski pinned Dick Reynolds. Paul Ellering pinned Sandor Sabo [sic].

I'll list both endings of the Bockwinkel vs Greg Gagne match.
