    Season 3: "Wrestle America" #30 (SEASON FINALE)

    Welcome to the Kings of the Ring. A fictional wrestling saga inspired by the real-life stories of the 1980’s Pro-Wrestling Era, written and produced like an ensemble cast cable drama or soap opera.


    Previously on Kings of the Ring,


    Jesse James talked Daniel Hawkins into holding a second annual expensive supercard for the summer, but in a stadium, while Julian Cain so jazzed by the release of their Wrestling for Africa song on MTV is bringing the Empire back to Atlanta as a mainstream national promotion


    Burt Ironside has stabilized All-South wrestling behind Criss Stanley discovery Apollo Sampson while Michael Angel went on a drunk and high bender and ended up getting arrested at a gay sex restroom


    Krusher Krawcyk loses a $2 million lawsuit for striking an ABC reporter, while Beau Riggs is given the big opportunity to wrestle World champ Diamond Donny Gold in the main event of Wrestle America.


    After Corporal Punishment was offered to star in a cartoon and toyline from Hasbro, Julian fired him, and was unable to get a job anywhere in wrestling, so Hasbro killed the deal. Hercules Harris struggles with the new African gimmick put on him by Julian Cain, Leroy Brown is told he needs to get surgery if he ever wants to wrestle again, and the Tarzan Kid paid off his gambling debts by working jobs for the Dragoni crime family.


    Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. This episode would be rated MA for profanity, drug use, smoking, homophobic slurs and sexual dialogue.

    In an effort to become more mainstream, Julian Cain had the EWF wrestlers record a rap record to help battle starvation in Africa, Apollo Sampson made an immediate impact for All-South off Criss Stanley’s suggestion, and has been filling the void left by Burt Ironside’s son Michael Angel, and Leroy Brown injured his already hurt knee in a match.

Jimmy Buck had his first in-ring confrontation with a wrestler when Jesse James saved a woman for a post-match attack from Buck. In the dressing room, Jimmy tipped off Vladimir Rykoff about a movie opportunity for the newest Rocky movie.


    After finding out Michael Angel was gay after Empire-Mania, Julian Cain scrapped any plans of Angel taking Thor’s spot as the face of the EWF, and Beau Riggs was moved into a mid-card program in Southeast Championship Wrestling with Beautiful Barry Lovelace and Miss Kitty by Booker, Jesse James.

    Season 3: "Meat Unleashed!" #26

    Season 3: "Meat Unleashed!" #26

    It's "Meat Unleashed"! as the draft is done and we see the boys make their debuts nationwide throughout the World Wrestling Alliance! + 2 Deleted Scenes!


    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.

King of pods!

King of the Ring is a creative idea in the world of wrestiling podcasts. I'd never quite seen anything like it but I had a great time hearing the story of Wrestiling Wars.

Yosemiteke ,

Ahh, the '80's!

It puts me back into my childhood! A great listen, especially on drives to Indy shows!

Edit: I have gone through the series four times already and am about to start my fifth run!
