Special Episode: It’s A Happy August Thanksgiving In Richmond

Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast. Mike Sempervive returns with a very special edition of the show, celebrating wrestling history and memories! With a big assist from our friends at the Mid-Atlantic Gateway, we present to you exclusive audio of the Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling program – August 14, 1982 – that is not available on the WWE Network!

Ripped from the recording David Chappell made when the show originally aired on WTVR in Richmond, you’ll get to hear key happenings that would shake up the territory’s makeup. Jim Crockett Jr resigns his position as the President of the National Wrestling Alliance. NWA World Champion Ric Flair has returned to cause havoc. The Marines attack Wahoo McDaniel, tearing up his headdress – and threatening to scalp him! Roddy Piper, a week after being stabbed in the chest, has turned babyface and began soliciting help from some unlikely sources. Meanwhile, Paul Jones has turned dirty, joined the House of Humperdink and is thirsting for championships. History that could have been lost forever, will instead be played for you!

Plus, we’ll get a chance to hear audio from sister-program World Wide Wrestling, including local promos for an upcoming card at the Richmond Coliseum. In addition, we take a glimpse at the “River City’s” wrestling history, as well as reading your responses to the question of which Crockett-era Starrcade means the most to you!
