Write up in the Star on the Oct 13 1985 card at MLG. This one was broadcast live on closed circuit TV across southern Ontario, Michigan, and western NY. 

Though I had tuned out in '84 Hogan did revitalize Toronto much like Flair and Steamboat had in '78, witness the 17,000 attendance. Tunney's 50th Anniversary show in 1981 drew 16k and 17k was long gone by the late days of the promotions NWA days
