My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 287: Wrestling Under the Influence

Quarantine has inspired new ideas for me and I tried one of them on this week’s podcast. My original plans fell through but I think something will work out for it soon, so I won’t reveal yet.

This week though, I’m joined by four members of the Stride Pro Wrestling roster; Jay Spade, Dalton Anthony, Lane Austin and Bud Gallows. We held a Zoom session where we talked about AEW, WWE and of course Stride.

I enjoyed a couple of Tail Chaser IPAs by Sleepy Dog Brewing as Dalton had Abita’s Strawberry Lager.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 283: Wrestling Under the Influence

Pity Party, table for one. That is how this podcast may sound to some. However, that is not my intent. I had big plans for this week’s show since it falls on 4/20. You can read between the lines on who I wanted as my guest…

That being said, my attempts to get Rob Van Dam on the show turned into another failed experiment. So that got my brain churning and I thought, why not review a beer in my fridge called Mad Scientist Milkshake IPA. It’s from the Experimental Series by Witchita Brewing Company. You can visit their website here.

So this week you’ll hear me kinda rant and complain about the guests who I’d always wanted but never got. I also review the beer and share some thoughts on other aspects of pro wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 278: Wrestling Under the Influence

Give me a hell yeah! For the first time, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s Broken Skull IPA is now available in Kentucky. That’s only an hour’s drive from my home in southern Illinois, so this week we are Wrestling Under the Influence with this iconic beverage on 3:16 Day. It worked out perfectly!

Red Daniels, the NEEEWWWWW Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion is my guest co-host this week. We rate the beer and also talk more about Austin in terms of ‘what-ifs’. Check it out and let us know what you think of the episode.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 274: Wrestling Under the Influence

This month’s Wrestling Under the Influence is a fun one for me. I get the chance to share a beer with my dad and talk all about Wrestling at the Chase. My dad (and I) grew up in St. Louis, so Wrestling at the Chase was a staple for him as a teenager and I watched early on in my fandom before the show went off the air.

We also drink Love Gun by Heavy Riff Brewing in St. Louis. My dad doesn’t drink much outside of the Busch family so introducing him to new craft beers has been fun.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to Johnston City High School on Saturday, Feb. 22 and Carterville (1130 N. Division St.) on Saturday, Feb. 29. You can get all the details here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 239: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Rowdy & Proud’

It’s hard to argue the greatness of ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. This week we raise a can of Rowdy & Proud by Three Taverns Craft Brewery to Hot Rod himself. I’m joined by Stride Pro Wrestling star Ax Allwardt. We discuss the beer and Piper. We throw in some comments about today’s wrestling scene and how it compares to the 80s.

Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart is one of the most iconic pro wrestlers in the history of the business. He was recently immortalized again in the WWE Hall of Fame with his partner Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.

This week on the podcast, my co-host Roger Matheus and I review a beer made in Hart’s honor. It’s called Brett ‘The Hipman’ Hop. Against the Grain Brewery & Smokehouse in Louisville, Kentucky makes this beer. They sent me a bottle to try just for the show.

4 Elf Winter Warmer Spiced Ale.

Tis the season for drinking, so Chad Smart (host of Positive Cynicism) and I busted open 4 Elf Winter Warmer Spiced Ale by Dark Horse Brewery. While enjoying this festive beer we chat about Christmas gimmicks, movies and angles related to the world of pro wrestling.

Warrior-Santa
Warrior vs. Santa

One story we share is the Ultimate Warrior Christmas comic. You can check it out here and decide for yourself if Warrior “humbled” Santa Claus…

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 196: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Rebel’

Oh Hell Yeah

When Nichole Pate was 14 years old she had no idea what a rebel she’d turn out to be. She simply went to school on a Monday morning wearing an Austin 3:16 t-shirt in 1998. She was sent home as a result. What happened next is pretty awesome.

Nichole and I have a Rebel IPA by Sam Adams as she shares her story. Check out the podcast to find out more… And be sure to visit the @my123cents on Instagram for more pics.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 189: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Anti-Hero’

Wrestling Under the Influence

Chad Smart, the host of Positive Cynicism, was in town for the afternoon recently and I always like recording podcasts in person. So it seemed like a great time to do just that. He’s not much of a beer drinker, but I wanted to get his take on Anti-Hero by Revolution Brewing in Chicago.

If you’re new to the Wrestling Under the Influence concept, we drink a craft beer and tie it to wrestler or angle in wrestling. Here are the previous shows:

Two Brothers
Death By Coconut

For the Anti-Hero beer we discuss a few anti-heroes in pro wrestling; including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Roman Reigns and CM Punk. I also give a shout out to my friend in Stride Pro Wrestling, Ax Allwardt.

My 1-2-3 Cents has several tag team partners. Do your shopping for pro wrestling t-shirts on COLLARxELBOW. You can also shop for Funko Pops, Manscaped accessories or your favorite Amazon items all on this link. Harness Digital Marketing can hook you up with social media and brand building needs.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 180: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Two Brothers’

Brotherly Love

It’s another episode of Wrestling Under the Influence. This week I’m joined by my buddy Dan Turnquist and we tackle 21st Anniversary by Two Brothers Brewing Company. Full disclosure, when I looked at the can, I thought the name of the beer was two brothers and that’s why I picked it. I figured we could talk about our favorite brothers in pro wrestling.

The actual beer we drank is the 21st Anniversary. However, we did just go ahead and talk about the brothers of wrestling we like the most. Some are related by blood, others are related by a storyline. However, as we discuss wrestling, in general, is a brotherhood, so it’s all good.

I’m also a sponsored athlete (stop laughing) for COLLARxELBOW brand. Shop online and use the promo code MY123CENTS and you’ll save 10%.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 175: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Death by Coconut’

Wrestling Under the Influence

When I was in college I dreamed of attending WrestleMania X and having a beer. I picked ten specifically because that was the year I turned 21. So wrestling and beer have been a part of me for decades now. They’re a great tag team and now I’m finally kicking off a new segment on the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast.

Wrestling Under the Influence (name credit to Dennis Wyatt) will include a conversation between me and a fellow wrestling fan. We’ll share a beer and our memories on a point in wrestling that we tie into the beverage selected. On this first installment, it is Death by Coconut by Oskar Blues Brewery. Since coconut is in the name, I had to dedicate the beer to ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper and ‘Superfly’ Jimmy Snuka.

My fellow Craftbeerican and beginner pro wrestling fan, Tom Harness joins me for this conversation. We review the beer and talk about one of the most memorable wrestling angles from the 1980s.

I’m also a sponsored athlete (stop laughing) for COLLARxELBOW brand. Shop online and use the promo code MY123CENTS and you’ll save 10%.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 172: ManiaCrawl 2018

Cheers to ManiaCrawl!

WrestleMania is just weeks away, but before the Superstars of the WWE take to the Superdome in New Orleans, fans will gather for the fifth annual ManiaCrawl. The event is a bar crawl and fundraiser for Connor’s Cure. Connor was the little boy who died a few years ago after a valiant battle with cancer.

WWE created the foundation to help other children going through cancer. The folks behind ManiaCrawl are not affiliated with WWE but do work with Connor’s Cure. The events have raised thousands of dollars so far. If you’re in New Orleans for Mania, consider stopping by. If you’re not going to be there this year, you can still help here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 153: Wrestling with Craft Beer

Beer and Bodyslams

Beer and wrestling seemingly go hand and hand. I had a big vision for this week’s episode. I attended the Big Muddy Monster Brew Fest in Murphysboro, Illinois with some friends over the weekend. Since I didn’t have a guest I thought it would be fun to find different craft beers and tie them in with wrestling. The first few reviews recorded just fine, but somewhere along the way, the other recordings stopped. I’m disappointed this happened, but I do believe I still have some good content in this episode. I’ll plan better for next year, as I do like the idea of pairing wrestlers with beer.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 91: Cheers to ManiaCrawl

ManiaCrawl2
A toast to ManiaCrawl

A few years ago a couple of wrestling fans came up with a way to unit fans before two of the WWE’s biggest events of the year, WrestleMania and SummerSlam. ManiaCrawl is held the afternoon of those events now at a bar in the host city. Hundreds of fans participate and help raise money for Connor’s Cure.

Prior to SummerSlam, KBH Bierhall in Brooklyn is hosting ManiaCrawl. Bill Apter will be there too, signing copies of his new book. Admission is free, but donations will be collected at the event. To date, ManiaCrawl has raised about $2,700.

Chad and I stopped by ManiaCrawl in Dallas earlier this year. I got in a quick episode of Craftbeericans while I was there.

You can find ManiaCrawl on social media, be sure to follow and like their pages. You can buy t-shirts and make donations to Connor’s Cure if you aren’t able to make it to the bar.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 90: Top Rope IPA Review

TOP ROPE IPA

Many of you know not only do I like pro wrestling, but I’m learning the ropes about craft beer. My buddies and I have a YouTube channel called Craftbeericans where we review various brews. This week, my worlds collide with a review of Top Rope IPA by Tallgrass Brewing Company in Manhattan, Kansas.

But please stay tuned to the Craftbeericans channel for a WWF Superstars review of Top Rope IPA. It’ll be up later this week and funny (I hope).
