The May 21, 1983 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on May 10, 1983 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The episode was known for setting up a summertime feud between WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund and the returning Sgt. Slaughter. The setup storyline focused on Backlund (over a series of weeks) completing a series of endurance and physical fitness tests, including the strenuous Harvard Step Test, after which Slaughter began disputing whether Backlund had completed the tests successfully. In response, Backlund decided to complete the Harvard Step Test again to prove to Slaughter he was ready for his challenge, but when Slaughter tried unsuccessfully (several times) to interrupt him, he attacked Backlund's manager, Arnold Skaaland. Backlund immediately came to Skaaland's aid but got beaten down with Slaughter's riding crop, leaving bruises and welts on his backside.
