He defeated Von Erich on December 15, 1988 at Superclash III to unify the two titles. Soon after, Lawler's issues with Verne Gagne led to his departure from the AWA. This announcement takes place during a 6-Man Tag match featuring Jimmy Golden and Frankie Lancaster vs. Tracy Smothers and Scot Steiner.
