The November 17, 1979 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on November 13, 1979 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode is best known for featuring the televised debut of a handsome young bodybuilder originally from Port Tampa, Florida, named Terry Boella ... but would be billed from Venice Beach, California and be known as Hulk Hogan. Billed as an arrogant villain who loved to overpower his foes, Hogan was accompanied by veteran manager Freddie Blassie. In the post-match interview with Vince McMahon, Blassie -- prophetically, as it turned out -- proclaimed that Hogan would beat all comers and soon become the face of professional wrestling.

Also during the episode, McMahon interviewed The Grand Wizard, asking him to confirm rumors that he was in the midst of a deal with Captain Lou Albano. Wizard refused to discuss the details and said that his and Albano's attorneys were negotiating specifics.
