The October 9, 1982 Edition of WWF Championship Wrestling is a Professional wrestling television show of the World Wrestling Federation, which took place on October 5, 1982 at the Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This episode is best known for solidifying the face turn of "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka. Despite being pushed as a heel, Snuka had gained a strong following from fans, and to facilitate his turn, a storyline was devised to have newcomer Buddy Rogers (who had been hosting an interview segment, "Rogers' Corner") convince Snuka that his manager, Captain Lou Albano, was defrauding him of his earnings. Initially skeptical at the beginning of the storyline, Snuka eventually caught on and realized Rogers was right. In this episode, he fired Albano as his manager and hired Rogers as his manager. Moments later, Snuka came to the ring for a match against Ray Stevens, but that match ended in a no-contest when Albano came to the ring and orchestrated a 2-on-1 attack of Snuka, with Stevens -- after throwing him from the ring -- piledriving Snuka twice on the cement floor.
