Jonny Puma - Part I

The newest episode of Inside the Empire features one of the founding fathers of Empire State Wrestling - Jonny Puma!

Puma goes into great depth not just on the beginnings of ESW, but also his own career and the early days of independent wrestling in Western New York. He also touches upon such topics as the early years of ESW's history, Ballpark Brawl experiences, his comedy career, the sale of ESW to Ray Erway before leaving off at the transition to NWA Empire.

This is our longest episode to date, as it's also filled with many fun stories from over the years. However, there's so much more that still needs to be covered that Puma's career will be broken down into multiple episodes.

Stay tuned to your favorite podcast streaming feed for future episodes featuring Puma throughout the rest of the year.

*NOTE: The mini-prize pack giveaway winner will be selected at the end of the final Puma episode.
