This week’s DELETED SCENE we hear a very special convo between Julian Cain and “Hollywood” Buddy Melrose on the plane to Empire-Mania 2.  Hear this scene and EVERY deleted scene from Seasons 3 & 4 with the Patreon Offseason Special, which is paying the initial first month to signup, and then no longer being charged until Season 5 premieres!

Hope you enjoyed the BONUS recap episode 39 and a half Charlie and Julian, an episode that also drives home the consistent irony of the Kingsverse. In the ring, it’s very black and white who the faces and heels are, but outside the ring, behind the curtain, it is nothing but shades of gray…

Previously on Kings of the Ring,

Over the two years, Julian Cain bought the Calgary territory to expand into Canada, and established Empire-Mania in New York City as the biggest show in wrestling, but as secret revenge for what Charlie Gotch did to his mother when he was a boy, also stole Hollywood Buddy Melrose from Charlie Gotch and decided to put Empire-Mania 2 in Milwaukee.

The Meat Machine vowed to make it in wrestling and only them, while Michael Angel met up with brother Gabriel, which only reminded him of the pain of leaving his family for the Empire.

Diamond Donny Gold went on a spirit journey at Waylon Thorpe’s reservation in Oklahoma and defeated his own mental blocks to walk again, and Mbutu Zulu was put into the main event against Thor Hansen, breakout star of Rambo 2.

Krusher Krawcyk thought he’d be able to buy his house back, but a double cash offer and took it away. And the Apocalypse match with the Roughousers turned into a shoot when Shark & Buzzsaw told Brick and Tiger to leave their friend Apollo Sampson alone.

Kings of the Ring is intended for mature audiences. Today’s episode would be rated TV-14 for profanity and drug use.
