The September 6, 1980 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on August 20, 1980 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode is best known for the first televised confrontation -- at least on the WWF's syndicated programs -- between Hulk Hogan and André the Giant. The two had met earlier in the month at the Showdown at Shea, with André gaining a disputed victory over Hogan, but that matchup was not shown on terrestrial television, and not widely publicized outside of the New York-New Jersey market. The basis for this confrontation was that André was being interviewed at ringside when Hogan and manager Freddie Blassie came to the ring to challenge André to a match, which André immediately accepted ... with the stipulation that the match take place right now. Hogan appeared ready to accept until interviewer Vince McMahon restored order, and a matchup was signed for next week..
