The AWA knew Hulk Hogan was gone well before the Christmas 1983 card. Ads in the Minneapolis paper in the week plus before the card billed Mad Dog Vachon as Nick Bockwinkel's challenger. Hogan was not promoted as appearing at that event by the time of the ads. I don't remember, but would concede he may have been billed for the card on TV initially, but Mad Dog was the named challenger on TV before the card took place.
