    Previously on Kings of the Ring,

    Over the two years, Julian Cain bought the Calgary territory to expand into Canada, and established Empire-Mania in New York City as the biggest show in wrestling, but as secret revenge for what Charlie Gotch did to his mother when he was a boy, also stole Hollywood Buddy Melrose from Charlie Gotch and decided to put Empire-Mania 2 in Milwaukee.

    The Meat Machine vowed to make it in wrestling and only them, while Michael Angel met up with brother Gabriel, which only reminded him of the pain of leaving his family for the Empire.

    Diamond Donny Gold went on a spirit journey at Waylon Thorpe’s reservation in Oklahoma and defeated his own mental blocks to walk again, and Mbutu Zulu was put into the main event against Thor Hansen, breakout star of Rambo 2.

    Krusher Krawcyk thought he’d be able to buy his house back, but a double cash offer and took it away. And the Apocalypse match with the Roughousers turned into a shoot when Shark & Buzzsaw told Brick and Tiger to leave their friend Apollo Sampson alone.

    Previously on Kings of the Ring…

    Off of a tip from Prince Abdullah, Jesse James ventured to a bar in Wisconsin to discover a group of bouncers with wrestling dreams. Michael Sluck on ABC News Exposed tried to take down the wrestling industry with his expose, that ultimately failed, however Krusher Krawcyk was put into financial ruins for slapping him.

    Criss Stanley successfully convinced his Uncle Burt of his WWA Supercard idea, who sold the idea to the rest of the Alliance, for a history making show in St. Louis. Gabriel Angel demanded to wrestle the former Raphael Angel, now called Kenny the best West, and all the Alliance’s top babyfaces are in the main event, along with a battle of the tough guys with the Apocalypse and the Roughousers, Tiger Warren and Brick Sawyer.

    Louie the Greek and Nigel davies have both grown suspicious of Julian Cain’s actions in regards to Charlie Gotch, and Buddy Melrose has been taking in everything. Apollo Sampson is on top of All-South, yet is having a hard time from the start, because of locker room bullies Brick Sawyer and Tiger Warren. And Miss Kitty took off for an emergency trip to Oklahoma to save Diamond Donny Gold’s soul.

    Jesse James has been taking SCW to new heights, until his appearance on the Eddie Carr show where he slapped Jimmy Buck, saw Jimmy commit suicide days later, after missing out on a dream movie role.

    Previously on Kings of the Ring,

    Charlie Gotch was humbled in an airplane brawl testing out Shark and Buzzsaw, while son Nelly pushed him to be more open to change.

    "Outlaw" Jesse James and Hollywood comedian/movie star Jimmy Buck spent the past year with a long elaborate storyline of him wrestling women while mocking Pro-Wrestling, which lead to a record setting match at WrestleAmerica in the Summer. Hoping to have lightning strike twice, they are setting up a major rematch on the Thanksgiving show with both men appearing on the iconic late night talk show, The Eddie Car Show before tens of millions of viewers across America.

    And after breaking his back in a plane crash after WrestleAmerica, Diamond Donny Gold’s rehab has been long and slow, with his back healing but still paralyzed. Miss Kitty has been one of the few supporters of Donny’s after it got out that Chief Waylon Thorpe died from this crash when he was originally sitting in Donny’s seat, but Donny forced him to switch.

    Hercules Harris still struggles with his Mbutu Zulu gimmick, but started to exercise his newfound political power by getting former mentor, DeShaun Brown, fired.

    Previously on Kings of the Ring,

    Every Territory in the World Wrestling Alliance suffered major hits over a year ago when Michael Angel, Leroy Brown, Corporal Punishment, Killian Kavanagh, and several others all no-showed Alliance events and followed Thor Hanson to Julian Cain’s Empire.

    Following a potentially fatal backstage fight, AMW’s North American champion Goliath went back to Japan and destroyed the belt, forcing Charlie Gotch to fire him and vacate the title. Meanwhile the other half of their 1984 headlining feud, Buddy Melrose retired from the ring, after suffering a cardiac arrest in a match with Goliath. Charlie did not take the decision well, and fired and disowned his long-time best friend and ally.

    Julian Cain fired EWF’s official “patriot” Corporal Punishment after he inadvertently pissed off Julian by securing a high-profile toy and cartoon deal with Hasbro that was not brokered by the Empire.

    At Empire-Mania, Madonna’s manager, Rob D’Zima told "Diamond" Donny Gold he’d been selected to be Madonna’s boytoy for the evening, until his match ran long postponing her live performance and causing her to be booed.

    After the awful publicity and reputation dogging the wrestling industry from the ABC News Exposed report, Julian concocted a plan for a project to provide the distraction they needed to distinguish themselves from the rest of the industry.

    Jimmy Buck’s initial angle of wrestling women has been getting over, and they’ve taken that angle on the road at house shows throughout the Southeast, where all the SCW acts are really starting to catch on.

    To get them out of the corner they painted themselves into last year, Peyton Thomas and Burt Ironside made “Pretty Boy” Willie Dean their champion in All-South Wrestling, who has ended up holding onto that title ever since, as there hasn’t been anyone else for that spot.

    The guys from the Meat Machine were drafted by the heads of the Alliance, and split off to various parts of the country, after being trained by Prince Abdullah Akbar, but not before vowing to always be friends no matter where their careers took them, and to always be the Meat Machine!

    Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. Today’s episode would be rated MA for profanity and tasteless jokes from the 80’s.

    Previously on Kings of the Ring,

    ABC News Exposed Reporter Michael Sluck, not only used journeyman wrestler KJ Parker to discredit pro-wrestling, but threatened the Empire and the Alliance with government intervention if they don’t fully disclose that wrestling is a work. While no one has taken any real action since despite attendance possibly being hurt by the controversy, Julian is considering just going with it, and owning it.

    Jimmy Buck’s wrestling debut on WVBS taking on a woman, was a big hit that got him instant heat with the fans. Thor Hansen filmed his first movie, a major co-starring role beside Sylvester Stallone in Rambo!

    After Corporal Punishment revealed he got himself a dream deal with Hasbro Toys, Julian Cain fired him, and Hercules Harris wasn’t pleased to hear Julian’s idea to abandon his career-long Hercules gimmick to be a generic racist stereotype of an African.

    After Prince Abdullah refused to shoot on Thor Hansen, despite Charlie Gotch promising citizenship for his family trapped in Iran, through his government connections, Abby was disgraced and blackballed from the Alliance by Gotch, and fired by Julian Cain. The Prince stumbled on seven musclebound bouncers from a bar in Oshkosh, and had the idea to train them to be wrestlers, as his ticket back into the business.

    Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. Today’s episode would be rated MA for profanity and graphic violence. (awww, no graphic sexual scenes today???)

    Previously on Kings of the Ring...

    The entire wrestling world experiences the PR damage from the ABC News Exposed report on wrestling. While SCW strategy is to amp it up in the ring by making the matches more realistic than ever, to the point of hurting each other, Julian Cain still searches for a proper counter, as hyper-realism would never be an option for the EWF, all while trying to figure out what to do with Hercules Harris. And while the wrestling world deals with that Krusher Krawcyk is dealing with something much worse as he’s being sued for $2 million dollars for striking Michael Sluck during that report.

    "Hollywood" Buddy Melrose is on the mend, while juggling such visitors as Thor Hansen and the Gotch family, and Criss Stanley struggles to learn how to wrestle, while being the punching bag for the Meat Machine.

    Corporal Punishment gets the offer of a lifetime from the Hasbro toy company, while Bobby Lee Rivers and Davey Boy Givens continue to develop as a team and as friends as an interesting new act for Southeast Championship Wrestling, which also saw Jimmy Buck make his WVBS debut promising to wrestle his very first match, against a mystery opponent.

    And finally Charlie Gotch called old friend and World Japan Wrestling owner Mikasa to tell him Goliath was stripped of the AMW title and he needed to return the belt. Goliath gathered with his harem of Japanese beauties and prepared to do just that.

    Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. Today’s episode would be rated MA for graphic descriptions of bodily functions, profanity, 80’s cigarette smoking, drinking while driving, descriptions of nudity, and outdated wrestling racial characterizations.

    Previously on Kings of the Ring...

    Julian Cain stole Thor Hansen, the mid-card heel sidekick to Hollywood Buddy Melrose, and turned him into the biggest wrestler in the business, and a movie star for the Empire! Co-starring in Rambo, as Sylvester Stallone’s sidekick as written in the original script from James Cameron.

    Prince Abdullah stumbled on a bar in Oshkosh, Wisconsin where every bouncer looked like a bodybuilding wrestler, and Corporal Punishment left the Carolina’s for the bright lights of the Empire Wrestling Federation to be Julian Cain’s resident patriot.

    After a record-breaking run in AMW that ended with Charlie Gotch, Goliath, and Buddy Melrose almost killed literally, Goliath fled the country back to Japan, while Jesse James and Daniel Hawkins traveled to Hollywood to make a deal with comic movie actor Jimmy Buck in a wrestling angle to get SCW publicity, and get Jimmy Buck back in the spotlight.

    After failing as a fake Angel Brother, Raphael Angel was fired from All-South Wrestling by Burt Ironside, and the bomb was dropped, as ABC News Exposed, featured a full-blown expose on pro-wrestling being fake, that the entire country watched on TV.

    Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. Today’s episode would be rated MA for profanity, and vulgar anatomical descriptions. (gross!)

    Previously on Kings of the Ring,

    After a year chasing the fantasy of being a mainstream sports celebrity, "Diamond" Donny Gold finally understood he was only a puppet and the subject of Julian Cain’s scorn and vengeance, and left the Empire Wrestling Federation and came back to the South, where longtime best friend Jesse James, accepted him back with open arms.

    In his efforts to combat Julian while building up the hottest pound for pound territory in the country, Jesse has been looking to add fresh outside talent. Not only bringing Donny back, but traveling the country to find wrestlers in the most unusual of places.

    Vanilla mid-carder David Givens was paired up with Bobby Rivers, a guy who’s been out of the business for a year after getting beat up in a barfight in front of wrestling fans. They were sent to the flea market to buy bandanas for some kind of a rock’n’roll gimmick Jesse concocted. Two guys very unsure this’ll work, but too desperate at this stage to object.

    Empire-Mania finished off 1984 as the biggest and most successful show in wrestling history, which brought more attention to the sport than ever before. Including unwanted attention in the form of a consumer reporter for ABC, who started putting together a major story, to take wrestling down.

    And while the heads of the world wrestling alliance will always bicker and squabble, they are more unified than ever in dealing with THE common threat of threats in Julian Cain’s EWF and his war against all of them, and how to stop him.
