Forgive me for asking this question if it has been asked and answered before. I may even have been the one to do so. The AWA ran a card in conjunction with some locals in Hawaii in late 1986 or early 1987. It wasn't the Maivia group as best can be told. The results turned up in The Wrestler. I have the copy boxed up somewhere or another. Does anyone have the results and the background to how this card came to take place?

Regarding that Florida card, one of the Apter Mags made some cryptic references to the card and Boris Zhukov being associated with another Russian, maybe Chris Markoff but definitely not Soldat Ustinov at least by that name. It was treated as canon by the magazine which wondered how it would tie into the Smirnoff-Gordienko team that was on the scene by then, but AWA TV made no mention of it and neither did the magazines in a month or so.
