The November 19, 1977 Edition of WWWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wide Wrestling Federation, which took place November 8, 1977 at the Philadelphia Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This episode is best known for the "Manager of the Year" segment, where the results of a (supposed) fan vote of the managers of the year were announced. After announcer Vince McMahon invited each of the WWWF's four managers -- heel managers "Classy" Freddie Blassie, The Grand Wizard and "Captain" Lou Albano; and face manager Arnold Skaaland -- to the ring, McMahon announced the results. Blassie was third runner-up and the Grand Wizard second runner-up, after which both made heel comments reflecting poor sportsmanship and their claim that the vote was biased. McMahon then announced Albano as first runner-up, before declaring Skaaland the winner. As McMahon began congratulating Skaaland and asked for a few words, an angry Albano paced the ring before he grabbed the trophy and attacked Skaaland from behind, knocking both the "Golden Boy" and McMahon (in one of his earliest televised bumps) to the floor. Several wrestlers from the back then came to both men's aid and ran Albano, who had continued to pout and break the trophy's remnants, to the back. After the commercial break, McMahon declared that Skaaland had been hurt badly and condemned Albano's actions.
