    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.

    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!"

    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.
    Today’s episode would be rated TV-14 for profanity and sexual references.  Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Kings of the Ring!

    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…
    Today’s episode features the guest voice talents of Cyrus Fees and LA Smooth and would be rated MA for profanity and sexual dialogue.

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!

Great listen

Good story cant wait for season 2

shatty15 ,

Lackluster

Episode 15 what a let down! So far through episode 14 this series has been incredible. After a month to put together episode 15, 15 is truly a huge letdown and pretty shi*#y! Hope this is just an anomaly and not what’s to come! Overall very good podcast, just not 15!
