Episode 58: March 5, 1983

Welcome to The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast. On this episode of the show, Mike Sempervive returns to take a look at Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling from March 5, 1983, featuring:

* This week’s Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling is not available on Peacock or the WWE Network. Nor do we have a magic copy, as we’ve had the past few weeks. As a result, we’ll take a little detour on The Road to Greensboro. 

* This is the definitive look at the entire American pro wrestling scene, as it entered Spring 1983. The rapid expansion of satellite and cable and the boom of independent and UHF television stations was fundamentally changing the attitudes of promoters, and how those promoters did their business. 

* A look at every company in North America, their rosters and how they stood in the month before professional wrestling would officially be flipped upside-down. From messy situations in the southwest, to a widespread battle for the Iron Belt, to interoffice battles in Atlanta – it’s all here! 

* And don’t worry! Mid-Atlantic wrestling is still on the menu as, in Charlotte tonight, Sgt. Slaughter attempts to bring up Private Jim Nelson on treason charges. 

* Incredible context, important results from around the circuit, classic audio, and so much more! (Check out the Patreon, which contains much more information about the territories mentioned, as well as other promotions and outlaws I couldn’t fit in this episode!) It’s time for another exciting edition of the Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast!
