He would be a month shy of being a wrestler 4 years at the time of the card. It could be because he just came back to AWA from WWF & Pacific Northwest
Or it could be that the AWA just followed the same protocol they had since inception for their young guys to pay their dues and/or make an extra few bucks.  I have some AWA shows that had Iron Sheik as ref and it was either 1976 or 1977 I think.
