Otherwise this seems to be his sole 1985 WWF appearance.

WWF @ Providence, RI - Civic Center - February 28, 1985
Don Muraco defeated SD Jones
David Schultz defeated Swede Hanson
Mil Mascaras defeated Pete Doherty
Tito Santana & George Wells defeated WWF IC Champion Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake
Jack & Jerry Brisco defeated Adrian Adonis & Dick Murdoch
WWF Tag Team Champions Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo defeated the Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff via disqualification
Antonio Inoki won a 15-man battle royal

I assume Inoki came over for the Wrestlemania funding negotiations.

I also assume he never had any sort of mini-run in the WWWF besides his appearances at msg cards.  I never remember seeing him in the 70's.   Everything I knew about him came from the Apter mags.
