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.
