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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 93: Hey, Hey It’s Conrad

Conrad Thompson
Conrad Thompson

This week the co-host of both The Ric Flair Show and Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard, Conrad Thompson, joins the podcast. Both shows are on MLW Radio.

The Ric Flair Show has weekly guests ranging from Cody Rhodes to Kurt Angle to Ken Patera and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard is a weekly stroll down memory lane as Prichard recalls certain storylines during his time in WWE. I love the format of this show in particular.

On My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast we discuss both shows and how Conrad went from wrestling fan to hanging out with the greatest of all time. We also talk about current events in wrestling and our thoughts on the state of WWE.

I’m also starting a new contest. Go to iTunes, subscribe and leave a rating and a review. Screenshot it and tag me on social media with it. The My 1-2-3 Cents prize vault is full and we need to get things out you!

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

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


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).

Also in this week’s show a look at what’s making news in the world of professional wrestling, including a look at some of my favorite local independent wrestling companies, including Stride Pro Wrestling, Warrior’s Code Wrestling and Cape Championship Wrestling. Please visit these companies and help make indy wrestling thrive here in southern Illinois and southeast Missouri.
