Championship Podcast: January 30, 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 30, 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.)

This week, the tournament for the vacant World Tag Team titles is being hyped, and tape is shown of outside team Adrian Adonis and Jessie Ventura who will be competing in the Greensboro tournament coming up a week after this show airs. You can find out all the details on that torunament which lasted for months in our special 12-part series that starts here.

There is some good discussion about Bob Caudle on this podcast episode as well.

We continue to enjoy 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 from the podcast is a special "Prelude Episode" that set the stage for the year 1982 and things to come, as well as two "bonus" episodes, one looking back at Starrcade '84, the other a special bio/profile of the patriarch of the Crockett promotional empire Jim Crockett, Sr. Both of these bonus shows are excellent!
