I saw some promos from Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling circa 1982 in an episode that was on the old 24/7 Classics on Demand service and may or may not be on the Network. Rich Landrum held the mic for the wrestlers to address being on TV in either Cincinnati or somewhere in Michigan for the first time. I forget which. No show as scheduled, but localized promos were used with the wrestlers all talking about coming soon to that city as opposed to the town getting the generic set of promos that usually were sent to markets with no card scheduled.

It isn't on the Network, but on YouTube is a promo circa 1980 or 1981 from the Poffo ICW that has Randy Savage and Bob Orton Jr. taking verbal shots at Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens. Angelo had somehow managed to get the show on in the Bay Area. That he went through the trouble of having Randy and Orton, and presumably others from that and possibly future episodes going into that market, cut localized promos for the Bay Area doing the promotion's usual deal of knocking the local wrestling heroes, suggests Angelo intended to run ICW cards there. I don't think that ever happened, however.
