AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel no contest Wahoo McDaniel
Ken Patera & Jerry Blackwell beat AWA Tag Team Champions Greg Gagne & Jim Brunzell
Mike Graham beat Buck Zumhofe
Baron Von Raschke beat Jesse Ventura dq
There last match was:
5/18/84 Las Vegas, NV @ Showboat Sports Pavilion
AWA Tag Team Champions The Crusher & Baron Von Raschke vs Jerry Blackwell & Ken Patera
I actually have extreme doubts about that being an accurate result, because there is nothing else listed from the show and Patera's previous last date with the promotion was two weeks earlier, but this was around the time he went psycho with Saito so it's at least possible that this did occur as his swan song.
Toward the end they were working a fair number of six-mans and matches where one or the other was teaming with Adnan and not the other. Still pretty crazy.

It's all about awesome costumes, gimmicks, and dinosaur tranquilizer fueled ranting and raving." - Strong Bad

I wish I knew this one-off team had existed. It's like the ultimate first round team.
