Previously on Kings of the Ring, Michael Angel is developing in the ring thanks to working with EWF veteran Pat Stevens. Denny Wayne and Jesse James talked about former WWA stars being buried by the Empire in their Southern tour and how to deal with that.  After being declared essentially useless by Julian Cain, Dan Sanders officially left the Empire Wrestling Federation.  Raphael Angel was brought in to portray Gabriel Angel’s gimmick brother, but they’re already not getting along backstage. 

And finally, the bombshell of all bombshells was dropped, as Julian Cain discovered that his Head of Accounting has been giving him false financial figures all year, and that the Empire is in serious debt, which means that due to provisions in his father’s will, at the end of the year the company will revert to Louie the Greek and Sal Spinelli.

Today’s Episode would be rated MA for profanity, homophobic slurs, and sexual situations

Previously on Kings of the Ring, Criss Stanley was brutally honest with Dan Sanders but he ended up winning him over.  After Krusher Krawcyk’s miscalculation since taking over Heartland resulted in them losing their cable TV slot on the America Channel to the Empire, the city of St. Louis is targeted by Julian Cain as the next Chicago-level coup.  While they prepare to headline a sold out Greensboro show and the first ever Closed Circuit event in wrestling history, Tommy Aloha is worried about his long-term future with Jesse James as Booker.

After the angle was shot to build Thor Hanson vs “Diamond” Donny Gold for MTV, Julian Cain switched it to Thor vs. Tama the Wild Beast.  “Hollywood” Buddy Melrose’s months-long babyface experiment ended as he turned heel to make way for the debut of the enormously popular Goliath in Charlie Gotch’s AMW.  And finally, after firing Louie the Greek and Sal Spinelli, Julian Cain began a new profit-driven directive for the EWF culminating in the creation of Empire-Mania, an ­­end of the year blowoff designed to be the biggest wrestling show in history, headlined by Thor Hanson vs. "Diamond" Donny Gold.

Today’s episode features the guest voice talents of Cyrus Fees and would be rated TV-14 for profanity and drug use.

Previously on Kings of the Ring, Diamond Donny Gold ran a major angle on MTV to set-up the Empire-Mania match with Sylvester Stallone, although partner Killian Kavanagh’s botch may have screwed things up.  Empire newcomers Corporal Punishment, Michael Angel, and Leroy Brown, along with Empire vet Tarzan Kid continue to struggle sharing second fiddle status to champion Thor Hanson.

Julian Cain orchestrated a buyout of SCW from Nigel Davies, Les Henderson, and Bob Walker to secure the cable TV slot on WVBS on Saturdays at 605.  And Krusher Krawcyk sat at home and watched Empire announce their debut show in Krusher’s backyard, St. Louis, and had the answers in the form of 48 oz of cold blue steel…

Previously on Kings of the Ring ... Tommy Aloha worries he’s being buried by Booker Jesse James after losing the biggest match of his career and being split up with his long-time partner Hercules Harris, to set up CWA’s Thanksgiving supercard, the Battle of the Starrs. The main event of which features visiting Dan Sanders, who continues his free agent tour of the Alliance since departing the Empire after a 10-year run.

After seeing top stars Michael Angel and Leroy Brown jump to the Empire, and firing other promising young talents, Burt Ironside feels the pinch of his personnel decisions in 1984 with crowds down across the board, while Charlie Gotch’s resurgence since bringing in Goliath for a championship run continues, despite the toll its taking on his son Nelly.  In a desperate attempt to preserve his territory, Krusher Krawcyk threatened Julian Cain at gunpoint  to stay out of the Heartland.

As everything builds towards Julian Cain’s celebrity-centric wrestling show, Empire Mania, whose main event featuring Sylvester Stallone, Diamond Donny Gold was bumped out of and replaced by Killian Kavanagh.

Previously on the Kings of the Ring, Julian Cain found out his finances were in much worse shape than he realized, and due to the provision in his father’s will, if the EWF doesn’t meet a certain level of profit margin for 1984, he would lose control of the Empire to Sal Spinelli and Louie Giannopoulos.  And for his last ditch effort to save his company, Julian concocted his version of the CWA’s Battle of the Starr’s as the show to end all shows hoping to make more money in one night than anyone in wrestling ever has before, it is now time … for the 45-Minute Jumbo-sized EWF exclusive Episode "Empire-Mania!"

And so it comes to this.  A year ago Jonathan Cain died, and Julian Cain declared war on the World Wrestling Alliance to make the Empire, the one and only wrestling company in America.  He raided the Alliance of their top guys and even tried to take the World title belt.  The Alliance reeled and struggled to understand and accept what happened, and had varying levels of success in their attempts to survive and respond to the loss of their biggest stars, while Julian dealt with his obstacles in creating his dream company.  But in the end came a bombshell from the most unlikeliest of sources, Julian’s #2 and #3 guys.  The Greek and the Roman.  An insider takeover plot from Sal Spinelli that forced Julian to put all his eggs in one basket and create Empire-Mania the biggest wrestling show of all time.  But when the pennies were counted, it wasn’t enough, and Sal Spinelli will take over Jonathan Cain’s company that Julian turned into a powerhouse. 

We now present to you, the final episode of the Kings of the Ring ...
