I thought of Slaughter but dq'ed him because his AWA title shots came after 1984.

No title shots as SD II?

That Toronto Bruno vs Mad Dog match never happened regardless of what Graham Cawthon's web site says. It was listed in an old Bruno Sammartino record book but Toronto historians have never found any proof of such a match.

For what it's worth when we had Mad Dog at our meet and greet someone asked him about Bruno and Mad Dog said he NEVER wrestled Bruno, Thesz or Kiniski.
Hard to believe but I never looked up this claim but Dog did say this.

It appears he had an AWA title match against Nick Bockwinkel on June 28, 1979 in Winnipeg, while competing as Super Destroyer Mark II.

Art Nielsen/Nelson- Had numerous NWA title shots, had a few AWA title shots as The Avenger against Verne Gagne in Omaha in 1968 & 1969. He also wrestled Bruno Sammartino twice in April 1966, although I'm not certain they were WWWF title matches, they don't state that they are non-title matches.

There was a time limit draw between Paul Jones & Mad Dog Vachon held in Vancouver BC on 10/10/66 while Vachon was the AWA Champion; however, I don't know if it was listed as a World Title match or not. Jones was defeated by Pedro Morales in Atlanta Ga on 5/25/73 in a WWWF title match, and Paul had numerous NWA World title matches against the likes of Kiniski, Funk Jr, Brisco, Race & Terry Funk.
If the Vancouver match was an AWA title match, then you can add Paul Jones to the list.
