The February 2, 1980 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on January 22, 1980 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode featured the famous "Student vs. the Teacher" matchup, pitting Bruno Sammartino vs. his longtime protégé, Larry Zbyszko, in what was billed as a scientific matchup. Sammartino got the better of Zbyszko several times, visibly frustrating Zbyszko, before Zbyszko lost his cool and attacked Sammartino, busting him open with a chair. This led to a bitter feud and main event matches across the country, culminating in a steel cage match at the Showdown at Shea in August. Zbyszko's heel turn also resulted in him earning several matches against WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund (of which Zbyszko was not successful).
