Welcome to The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast. On this episode of the show, Mike Sempervive and Roman Gomez return to take a look at Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling from January 22, 1983, featuring:

* We find out what happens when you put Rowdy Roddy Piper and Mr. Unpredictable Dick Slater in the same studio at the same time – on the same microphone, no less. (Spoiler: Complete insanity.)

* NWA World tag team champions Sgt. Slaughter and Don Kernodle continue to seethe as Ricky Steamboat and Jay Youngblood move forward with their mind games.

* Sir Oliver Humperdink’s $5,000 Slam Dunk Challenge for The One Man Gang moves forward, and the Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant takes his shot. 

* We get an appearance inside the ring from the Mid-Atlantic Television champion Mike Rotundo, and on the mic from United States champ Greg Valentine and the $100,000 man – Dory Funk Jr – who’s hunting for Jack Brisco.

* Mid-Atlantic heavyweight champion Jack Brisco teams with his brother Jerry in the main event.

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