We all know about the WWE Network, commonly referred to on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network as Channel 999. Other wrestling companies are looking at that formula and offering up matches for fans to watch on demand. There’s a new venture out there called Powerbomb TV that’s bringing several indy promotions together in one central spot.
This week’s podcast is all about Powerbomb TV. The co-founder of the site, Gerard (who wrestled as Vin Gerard in Chikara Pro), goes into greater detail about how Powerbomb TV works and how fans can sign up. Right now it’s $10 a month or 100 bucks for a one-year subscription. You can sign up now for free.
There’s a big event planned on Saturday, June 11 called Break the Barrier. Gerard describes it as more of a festival than a wrestling show. Colt Cabana will be one of the many indy stars appearing on the show.
Editor’s note: my apologies to Davey Vega and the folks at Missouri Wrestling Revival. I inadvertently called Vega Danny instead of Davey. Sorry!
It’s been an action-packed weekend. The 12th annual Cape Comic Con returned to Cape Girardeau, Missouri. There were plenty of vendors, artists and authors on hand. Costumed characters made their way around the Osage Center and several celebrity guests were there including Santiago Cirilo from the Walking Dead, voice actor Michael Nicolosi and lots of professional wrestlers.
I talked my buddy Tom Harness from Harness Digital Marketing into going or at least his alter ego iBatman. He’s the guest on today’s show. We talk more about his first experience at both Cape Con and later in the night with Cape Championship Wrestling.
Tom watched WWF back in the day but hasn’t experienced anything quite like CCW and “Sexy” Sarge for example. The ‘King of Dong Style’ Joey Ryan was there too. Tom’s reaction was priceless. Colt Cabana, Leva Bates and Jeff Cobb were also special guests who wrestled and a WWE Hall of Famer surprised fans by making a special appearance.
It was a fun day and we’re already looking forward to the 2018 Comic Con. Be sure to support my friends in the world of professional wrestling and beyond by following them on social media. Don’t forget to check out My 1-2-3 Cents the blog and KevinHunsBlogger too.
This weekend is the 12th Annual Cape Comic Con in Cape Girardeau, MO.
This year’s Cape Con preview episode features two of my favorite people and best friends, Jared and Nia Smith, of Talking Smit fame. We’re talking about some of our memories of recent Cape Con’s, the mistake that I made once and the good times had by all.
Learn about their favorite memories of their trips to Cape Con (spoiler, this pic place a part):
Cape Con 2017 will once again reunite me with my good friends, but we also talk about what is anticipated the most for them this year. Being that they’re both big wrestling fans, they’re eager to see two great nights of wrestling at the Arena. It’s Girl Fight and the Luna Vachon Memorial Tournament Friday night and the CCW Super Show Saturday night. Big names are brought to Southeast Missouri for a great weekend, and you can see them all (and the CCW talent) at the Con itself.
Enjoy the show. We get a silent cameo from my son who walked over to the broadcast area late in the show (he was a little more vocal about midway through).
Cape Championship Wrestling has been entertaining wrestling fans in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky for nearly a year. CCW will have a big presence at this year’s Cape Con event. On Friday, April 21 it’s ladies night as CCW teams up with Madman Pondo for Girl Fight. It’s the first ever Luna Vachon Memorial Tournament.
Then on Saturday, April 22 it’s the CCW Super Show. You’ll see all the stars of CCW including champion Brandon Barbwire, tag champs Farmer Billy Hills & Dell Tucker and Austin Lane. Plus guests scheduled to appear include Colt Cabana, Joey Ryan and Jeff Cobb. The company’s COO Jason Wells explains more in today’s podcast.
Stride Pro Wrestling is working on a big show in May. It includes a TLC match for the Stride Pro Wrestling championship as Heath Hatton defends against Roger Matheus. And former WWE Superstar (Brodus Clay) Tyrus will also be on hand.
It’s a great time for indy wrestling. Come out and support the men and women of the mat. Thanks!
Happy Independence Day. Thanks for checking out My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast. This week’s show is short and sweet.
It’s a plea to you as fans to support indy wrestling. Over the weekend I had a chance to be a part of two different wrestling shows. I was the ring announcer for a match at Global Force Wrestling when the company was in town for the Grand Slam Tour.
The next night I returned to my post as ring announcer for Stride Pro Wrestling. It’s always a good time doing this, and it’s so important to support indy wrestling. I go into the reasons during the course of the show, so be sure to stick around for that.
As always, please check out the blog (the streak is still alive there). Also, like the Facebook page and follow @my123cents on Twitter and Instagram. Also, follow @kevinhunsperger on Twitter and @kevin_hunsperger on Instagram. I’m aiming for a Pro Wrestling T’s page.
Oh and the name that eluded me during the show is Patrick Brandmeyer. Go follow him on Twitter too (@patrickab7) Sorry your name slipped my mind Patrick.
Growing up in the 80’s, we had Underoos. They were dubbed “underwear that’s fun to wear” and included super heroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. As a wrestling fan, I’d always hoped my favorite WWF/E Superstars would be represented, but it never happened.
Fast forward 30 plus years and Jonathan Bowles had a vision: WrassleRoos. It’s pro wrestling underwear for adults. But not only can you find briefs in the likeness of legends like “Macho Man” Randy Savage, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, you can also choose from a variety of custom made, vintage t-shirts. Boxer shorts are also available.
The story behind the success of WrassleRoos is truly remarkable. Listen to this week’s show and find out how Colt Cabana and CM Punk each played a role in putting these unique under garments on the map.
