Previously on Kings of the Ring,

Krusher Krawcyk lost a 2-million dollar lawsuit for striking reporter Michael Sluck, and began preparing for bankruptcy.

Julian Cain arrogantly took the Empire back to Atlanta and drew the smallest crowd to ever see Thor Hansen as EWF champ, despite his celebrity status as co-star of the hit Rambo movie.

Hercules Harris and Tommy Aloha bailed on SCW to join the Empire, to mixed results as Hercules was saddled with a heavy gimmick that he was highly conflicted about playing.

Burt Ironside’s All-South Wrestling and Charlie Gotch’s American Midwest Wrestling were both energized by the influx of the Meat Machine talents, packaged by Burt’s nephew Criss Stanley with new ready for TV gimmicks.

The Southern Rebels finally finished up in SCW, doing the honors for the Rock’n’Rollers at Wrestle America. Wrestle America, SCW’s biggest show in history headlined by Hollywood comedian, Jimmy Buck vs. Jesse James, and Diamond Donny Gold defending the WWA world title against rookie Beau Riggs. A wrestling dream show turned into a nightmare as the private plane flying Diamond Donny to the next town, went down in a fiery crash.

Thor Hansen visited old friend and former mentor Buddy Melrose at the hospital before being interrupted by Nelly Gotch. Krusher Krawcyk smacked ABC reporter Michael Sluck last year, and Sluck declared war on Krusher and the wrestling business. Leroy Brown tweaked his knee, and Hercules Harris has been having a hard time adjusting to his new handpicked gimmick form Julian Cain as Mbutu Zulu.

After being exposed as a fraud, Raphael Angel fled All-South for  Heartland Pro-wrestling hoping for a second chance at becoming a star in America. Jimmy Buck proposed to Jesse James the idea of becoming a wrestler for SCW to get both of them publicity, by wrestling women.

Thor Hansen was on the Eddie Carr show promoting his motion picture debut in co-starring role on Rambo, while headlining across the country with Killian Kavanagh. Jesse James asked the Southern Rebels to postpone their return to All-South Wrestling to help the Carolina Wrestling Association in his quest to build a Territory that can compete with Julian Cain’s Empire.

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.

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.
