The Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast Takes a Close Look at the first Clash of the Champions

The good folks over at the Mid-Atlantic Championship Podcast have a special episode up taking a look at the very first Clash of the Champions special on WTBS in 1988, which launched Sting into stardom as he challenged Ric Flair for the NWA World Heavyweight championship in the big main event. The free show went head to head with the WWF's Wrestlemania pay-per-view. Host Mike Sempervive and co-host Roman Gomez take a look at everything that went on leading up to the show and of course the big show itself.
