Each year since My 1-2-3 Cents the blog started, Chad and I have put our heads together and honored the best and worst in the world of professional wrestling. We call it the Centy Awards. While there is no actual award to be handed out, we talk about our choices on this week’s podcast.
You can listen to this week’s show or check out the latest blog over at My 1-2-3 Cents.

Money in the Bank 2017 is in the books and it’s the first WWE event I’ve attended since WrestleMania 32 in Dallas more than a year ago. I had the fortune of watching the show in a suite with some friends from Stride Pro Wrestling. My friend and former co-worker Weston White made the trip up from Nashville for the show too.
Weston and his father-in-law Brad join me on this week’s podcast. The three of us offer up our 1-2-3 cents on the show. While I’m not stoked that Baron Corbin has the brief, I did enjoy most of the Money in the Bank. What were your thoughts?
Stride Pro Wrestling held its second show in the month of June, this time a fundraiser for the YouthBuild program of Jefferson and Marion Counties. More than $2,500 was raised, so thanks to all who attended. That includes Chad Smart who hosts Positive Cynicism on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network. He’s also been a frequent guest here on My 1-2-3 Cents.
Chad is in town and attended his first Stride Pro Wrestling show. We break down the matches and talk more about indy wrestling in general. We’re also both going to Money in the Bank Sunday and share our thoughts on the matches that have been announced so far.
SummerSlam 2016 is in the books and probably the best pay per view so far of the year. From the crowning of the new WWE Universal Champion (Finn Balor) to the phenomenal matchup between John Cena and AJ Styles to Charolette regaining the WWE Women’s Championship this event delivered.
Chad and I give some thoughts on the evening, but also look ahead to what’s next for the Superstars involved in the biggest party of the summer.
Be sure to leave a review on iTunes (a new contest is coming soon) and follow us on social media.
Extreme Rules is just around the corner and Chad and Kevin are talking about the lineup for this year’s event. The two also share their thoughts on other happenings in the WWE, including some of the recent releases.
Be sure to weigh in and share your thoughts on Extreme Rules. Will AJ Styles win the gold? Who should be IC champ after the fatal four-way? And can Natty make Charolette tap out?

The New Era of WWE is underway and we saw the first pay per view. Kevin and Chad discuss the highlights and the lowlights of the evening. Both picked Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn as match of the night and question the “Chicago Screw Job” and the choice of both Shane and Stephanie McMahon to run Raw.
But as the two have said before, WWE is a marathon and not a sprint. Only time will tell what’s next for the company. By the way, we wish Enzo a speedy recovery and found this tweet from Kevin Owens awesome.
After taking off a year, Chad and I are heading back to WrestleMania. We’ll be in Dallas later this week for Axxess, NXT, the Hall of Fame, WrestleMania and Monday Night Raw. So we figured in this episode we share thoughts on the Hall of Fame Class of 2016 and the card as it stands for WrestleMania. We also provide a little insight into the show we’re both looking most forward to, NXT: Dallas.
Are you going to WrestleMania this year? Send us a message on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (@my123cents) or you can reach out to me on Twitter (@kevinhunsperger) or Instagram (@kevin_hunsperger). I’m planning to use the Facebook live feature on the My 1-2-3 Cents page throughout the weekend (no illegal streaming will be done).
There’s a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Triple H returned to the 2016 Royal Rumble to capture the coveted prize for the 14th time. Roman Reigns put up a valiant effort, but in the end it wasn’t enough to overcome the Authority and the League of Nations.
Kevin and Chad chat more about the Rumble match and what’s next for Triple H as champ and who he should face at Wrestlemania. Brock Lesnar, the Wyatt Family and plenty of other Superstars get some love during this show, including the six who made their Rumble debut. Those Superstars include AJ Styles, who also made his WWE debut at the Rumble, as well as Neville, Braun Strowman, Tyler Breeze, Kevin Owens and Zami Zayn.
The guys also share details about new contest leading to Wrestlemania. There will be three different winners and prizes include a 3-month subscription to WrestleCrate, a $25 WWE Shop gift card and a Sting prize pack. Be sure to listen to the show for the first week’s question.

Former WWE champion John Cena has undergone successful shoulder surgery. But as he recovers, it appears he will not be a part of Wrestlemania for the first time in more than a decade. What kind of impact will his absence have on the WWE’s biggest event of the year?
Kevin and Chad talk about that scenario and look at what the company can do to make the lack of Cena, as well as Seth Rollins and possibly Randy Orton and Cesaro less severe. The two also talk about the 2016 Royal Rumble and who should walk out the champ as well as speculation that members of the Bullet Club are WWE/NXT bound.
