Starrcade ’84 Special

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!
