I was 6 1/2 when I watched this and I had no perception that the AWA was any less important than the WWF. I maintain a healthy appreciation for Wahoo, the Baron and Greg Gagne, just based on their top face spots in 88-89. 

I'm almost positive they were plugging Dusty Rhodes as being a part of this, complete with a promo he sent in from Florida or whatever. 

I'm tempted to fantasy book Dusty being given the book at this point coming off his JCP firing. We might have gotten Bigelow, Big Steel Man, and Dustin in as fresh faces,(based on the PWF roster)  and possibly something with Terry Funk depending on his WCW status. Dusty and Larry trading promos would have been fun at least.
