Championship Podcast: January 23, 1982
The new episode of the "Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast" has dropped and features a look at the Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling episode from January 23, 1982.

Each week, Mike Sempervive and Roman Gomez will review another episode form the series that is currently available in the In-Ring/Territories section of the WWE Network. The show is a production of the Arcadian Vanguard Podcast Network and is available to stream on their website and anywhere else you get your podcasts (such as iTunes, etc.)

Lots of fun discussion this week, including some detail on the recent background of Porkchop Cash, who debuts this week, as well as a look at the various versions of world tag team championships that are dissapearing from the territorial wrestling landscape. Also a look at the transitioning mid-west "Tri-State" wrestling area.

We are enjoying this weekly deep dive into each of these Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling episodes and encourage you to check it out if you haven't already done so.

Also available are the first two shows covering the first two episodes of 1982. Also, a special "Prelude Episode" that set the stage for the year 1982 and things to come and a "bonus" episode looking back at Starrcade '84 that is not to be missed!
