The August 2, 1980 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on July 29, 1980 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode marked the WWF debut of Sgt. Slaughter, who would become one of professional wrestling's top stars of the 1980s and 1990s. Bob Remus, a native of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, had legitimately served in the Marine Corps (stationed at Parris Island, South Carolina) as a drill sergeant, and his persona was exaggerated into that of a sadistic drill sergeant who showed no mercy.

Also in this episode, a future matchup between NWA World Champion Harley Race and WWF Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund was teased, a brief staredown taking place after Race's match without the two coming to blows. After the staredown, Race explained that he was tracking down Backlund to request a match for the title.
