Episode 54: February 5, 1983

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 February 5, 1983, featuring:

* Lots of footage from “a large southern arena” – which looks exactly like Charlotte’s Coliseum on January 30 – where Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes joined forces, Jack Brisco faced Dory Funk Jr, and Greg Valentine battled the mysterious masked man known as The Champ.

* Terry Funk doesn’t like yankees from New York City, and he has some less than desirable plans for the Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant.

* Still being kept separate from each other inside the television studio, the war between Sgt Slaughter and Don Kernodle against Ricky Steamboat and Jay Youngblood continues to rage.

* Number One Paul Jones has refashioned his look, as he begins his transition into a new endeavor. 

* 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!

In celebration of the 35th anniversary, The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast proudly presents a very special look at Starrcade ’84.

Dubbed “The Million Dollar Challenge,” Mike Sempervive and Roman Gomez cover every aspect of the overshadowed supershow, taking the listener back into time so that they can feel how the promotion built the event, and truly understand what life was like leading into the Greensboro Coliseum, on the night of November 22, 1984.

We believe this to be the most comprehensive and definitive look at the event, ever recorded, and are very excited for you to come along for the ride.

Whether you’re reliving your memories, or creating some new ones, we here at The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast thank you very much for coming along on the ride!
