That 6/10/84 card featured a battle royal and was heavily hyped as something like a supercard. The WWF had its debut Twin Cities card on 6/17/84, so the AWA was determined to have a blockbuster card to show up the invaders.

I usually reformat results, but am pressed for time and will edit later. These are the two events that ran within a week of one another.
