My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 237: Changing Identities

Dean Ambrose is once again Jon Moxley. Goldust is Dustin Rhodes again. This week my co-host Garrett Turner, aka Dexter Roswel, and l talk about our favorite identity changes in pro wrestling. Roswell himself has had some changes in character; actually using two different personalities for Dexter in Stride Pro Wrestling and Cape Championship Wrestling.

Stride Pro Wrestling has a show Saturday, June 8 at the building in Carterville. It’s Battle Bowl! Learn more here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 88: Battleground Review

Courtesy: WWE

It’s after midnight and I have no clever title for this week’s show. I apologize. But the conversation is good this week as Chad and I discuss the Battleground event (or is it still pay per view) from WWE.

Dean Ambrose has walked out with the WWE World Heavyweight title, which means right now SmackDown Live is the only show with the “main” gold. We talk about what is next for Raw, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.

Who was Sasha Banks' mystery partner? IT'S BAYLEY!

While we both liked the show, neither of us felt like it was “must see” action. As always, it’ll be interesting to see what stories develop now that the brand extension will be in full effect.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 87: The My 1-2-3 Cents Draft

Dean Draft

This week marks the start of SmackDown live and the WWE Draft. Kevin and Chad decided to do some drafting of their own. After the flip of a coin, Kevin was named Raw GM which left SmackDown for Chad. Tune in to find out which ten Superstars the two ended up picking in this week’s episode. Spoiler alert: Kevin drafted Neville early in the show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 83: Cashing in on MITB

Money in the Bank 2016 is in the books and Dean Ambrose not only won the contract, but the championship on the same night. Although WWE touted this as the “greatest Money in the Bank of all time!” Kevin and Chad tend to disagree. This week the dynamic duo breaks down the event and shares their thoughts on the pay per view.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 76: Payback is a B****

Roman Reigns retains (WWE)

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 71: WrestleMania Here We Come!

By Kevin Hunsperger

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).

You can also check out our MVPs of WrestleMania blog.  Look for new features soon on the YouTube channel as well.

Please rate and review on iTunes and share the show with someone.  Thanks for the support!


My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 66: Shane’s (and WWE’s) Big Undertaking

Undertaker vs Shane McMahon

The mystery of who The Undertaker will face at his 24th WrestleMania has finally been solved.  The Deadman will step into the Hell in a Cell once again at the biggest show of the year.  This time against Shane McMahon.

It’s a bold move and something most fans didn’t see coming.  I’d read countless blogs and posts from fans speculating everyone from John Cena to Samoa Joe to even Goldberg as being Undertaker’s opponent.

Chad and I talk more about the decision to put Shane in the match and what things WWE could be doing to make WrestleMania more appealing.  Other matches announced so far: Roman Reigns challenging Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and Brock Lesnar squaring off against Dean Ambrose in a Street Fight.

Don’t forget, this is also your last chance to enter the “Road to WrestleMania” contest.  Answer the question in this week’s show at the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page.  Prizes include a three-month subscription to WrestleCrate, a Sting prize pack and a $25 gift card to WWE Shop.

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.
