Episode 30: August 7, 1982

Welcome to The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast. On this episode of the show, Mike Sempervive returns alongside Roman Gomez, to take a look at Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling from August 7 1982, featuring:

* Roddy Piper is stabbed in Raleigh; makes television the next day. We sift through both the fact and the fiction, including his imminent babyface turn, what the papers reported, what was said on TV – including a key angle on WTBS – and Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s spin on it all.

* We have two major championship changes, as Jack Brisco and Jimmy Valiant have claimed the Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight and Television titles, respectively.

* Inserted promos spoil Sgt. Slaughter’s upcoming suspension exploits in Hawai’i (aka New Japan) and Paul Jones’ heel turn.

* As a bonus, straight from the personal archives of Dick Bourne, you’ll hear a frustrated Jim Crockett Jr resign as President of the NWA, and get the details on very special edition of the next podcast!

* Plus, important results from around the circuit, incredible promos, and so much more on another exciting edition of the Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast!
