The battle royal was being broadcast almost immediately after it happened due to the Blackwell beatdown. There was a card in st Paul on 7/15/84, so I'm guessing it was just a labelling issue of some sort.

I’m really an AWA guy at heart.  It’s the Wrestling I was introduced to when I became a fan.  The last couple of minutes of the battle royal and the subsequent beat down is arguably the greatest AWA angle of all time.  When Blackwell dumps the charging Brody over the rope, the place kinda erupts.
