The June 18, 1983 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on May 31, 1983 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode was best known for the confrontation between WWF Intercontinental Champion Magnificent Muraco and "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, which began a months-long feud that lasted through the rest of the year. The feud was set up during a segment of Rogers' Corner (hosted by Buddy Rogers), where Rogers' guest, Muraco (at the time one of the most hated wrestlers in the WWF) complained that he was not given proper accolades for being champion and that the fans should be cheering him. As he angrily ranted on, Snuka -- by this time the WWF's most popular performer -- came out for a match (with Don Kernodle), and Muraco, feeling he was being ignored, came to ringside to yell at Snuka and (presumably) tell him he was nothing. After a few minutes of Snuka smiling and listening, Muraco spit on him, prompting Snuka to respond by diving over the top rope and onto Muraco. This set off a wild brawl that saw Snuka tear off Muraco's clothes and Muraco grab the overhead microphone to hit Snuka in the forehead and cause him to bleed heavily. Eventually, wrestlers ran in and separate the two, but not before both broke away at least one time to continue fighting.


Numbers in parentheses indicate the length of the match.
(c) refers to the champion(s) heading into the match.
