My buddy Chad Smart from the Positive Cyncisism Podcasting Network has introduced me to all sorts of different pro wrestling companies. In 2004 when I met him, he was ordering the weekly TNA pay-per-views. Then came Chikara Pro and now we’re watching a company out of southern California; Wrestling Pro Wrestling.
This is a very unique independent company, to say the least. Characters include the Fromage Horsemen (all characters based off cheeses), Darwin Finch and ‘Gentleman’ Jervis Cottonbelly. You can check out their YouTube channel here. Pull up the March 5 show; WPW Presents Tony Tickles’ Invasion Featuring the Sneaky Snakes and watch along with us. We also sprinkle in thoughts on other wrestling companies along the way.

In the world of professional wrestling, WWE is still considered the ultimate place to work. This week, my co-host Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I discuss his tryout with the company and some advice he has for all aspiring pro wrestlers.

This week I’m pulling some audio from the Impact Wrestling media call. I’ve sat in on these calls a few times but have yet to figure out how to get in a question. However, I am using some of the audio from the most recent call with Taya Valkyrie. She has been going toe to toe with Knockouts Champion Tessa Blanchard in recent weeks.
Also on the show this week, a preview of Stride Pro Wrestling’s upcoming show. The company has a new home at 1130 N. Division Street in Carterville, Illinois. On Saturday, Nov. 10 you can see the action as Heath Hatton defends the Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Title against Chris Hargas. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. Click here for more details.
Shop the My 1-2-3 Cents shop on Pro Wrestling Tees. More designs are coming soon (I swear).
Very soon (Oct. 13) Abyss is going into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame. Before that happens, he’s part of a big fundraiser show for Stride Pro Wrestling on Saturday, Oct. 6. The Monster faces Roger Matheus. These two have clashed before but never in a Stride ring.
That show is at Community Consolidated School Dist. 204 in Pinckneyville, Illinois. We’re raising money to build a new locker room for the school. Very penny raised that night supports the cause.
I had a chance to sit in on a conference call with Abyss and other pro wrestling journalists. I recorded a portion of the call and am sharing it with you all. Remember, he’ll be here in southern Illinois on Oct. 6. Get ticket info here.
If you’re into t-shirts, check out the My 1-2-3 Cents store on Pro Wrestling Tees. You can shop here for your Mondo the Monkey shirt. More designs are coming soon. If you have ideas for shirts, let me know. Until I sell 25, I’m limited to four designs though.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Impact Wrestling star ‘Cowboy’ James Storm. He was a last-minute substitute for Tyrus at a benefit show for tornado victims put on by Stride Pro Wrestling.
Storm couldn’t have been a nice guy. Our interview was brief in large part because of getting everything ready for the show and he had a meet and greet with fans before bell time. Since I’m the ring announcer, there’s no time for me to chit chat with anyone backstage during the show. But I appreciate the time we had together for the interview. I am grateful for the opportunity.
The show saw plenty of great action, including a TLC match main event featuring Stride Pro Wrestling champion Heath Hatton and ‘Big’ Roger Matheus. You can read more about that on the My 1-2-3 Cents blog.
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the show, as well as Jerry Travelstead and Josh Plumlee who helped organize the benefit. My buddy Tom Harness, who is slowly becoming a wrestling fan, joined me and took lots of great photos and video.
TNA has a new name and a new look. Impact Wrestling made its official debut last Thursday night. Do you like the changes? Kevin and Chad take some time to analysis the current state of affairs.
Alberto El Patron, former WWE World Champion, is the new Impact Wrestling Champion. Bruce Prichard is back. And so is Dutch Mantell. How do you feel? Weigh in after listening to this week’s episode of My 1-2-3 Cents.
We’ve hit double digits on the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast and in episode 10, Kevin is joined in the studio by co-blogger Chad. The two answer questions from friends on the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page.
