I came across an interesting promo that Flair cut in late 1985 (The build-up to Starrcade: The Gathering).  He mentioned that The Road Warriors were back in the NWA because they were "tired of playing with the kids in the AWA and were ready to come back to the major leagues."  I found that interesting because I never remembered any negative promos towards the AWA, in fact I never remembered them ever being mentioned period unless it was directly to promote a joint NWA-AWA Supercard.  Was wondering if any other comments were made along these lines.

Also, The Road Warriors were still appearing in the AWA up until early 1986, so Flair's comments would've been made before they even left.  Did the Warriors work both territories for a while?
