The Raw brand is back in pay per view form with the annual Hell in a Cell event. It’s set for Sunday and features an unprecedented three HIAC matches. Kevin Owens defends the WWE Universal championship against Seth Rollins, Rusev attempts to regain the U.S. championship from Roman Reigns and Sasha Banks clashes with Charlotte for the Raw Women’s title. That match is the first time the ladies have wrestled in a cell.
Chad and I break down the event as it stands so far. Who should main event? Are three cell matches necessary? Will Sheamus and Cesaro end the New Day’s 400+ tag team title reign?
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.
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.

You may be noticing a theme on the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast. Two-third of the WWE tag team champions The New Day have been on in the last couple of weeks. Kofi Kingston was my guest on episode 65. This week Xavier Woods is on the show. Both Superstars were promoting a WWE house show in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Xavier chats about training, his pursuit of higher education and the incorporation of unicorn horns and trombones in The New Day gimmick. The conversation is short and sweet, but very informative.
If you live in southern Illinois, southeast Missouri or western Kentucky check CMA Wrestling. Their first show is set for Saturday, March 5 at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion, Illinois.
Don’t forget Tuesday, March 1 is your last day to enter the Road to Wrestlemania contest. Listen to episodes 61-66 and answer the trivia question. Send a message to the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page.

I’m excited about this week’s show. WWE Superstar and one third of the tag team champions Kofi Kingston spent some time chatting about an upcoming house show in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The New Day member discusses more than the team’s Triple Threat Match against the Dudleyz and the Usos.
Kofi touches on his time before the New Day formed and how the trio fought to get the team on TV. We discuss past Royal Rumbles and the need to come up with something creative each year to avoid elimination and which tag teams from the past he would like to have seen New Day face. Listen until the end to hear this week’s Road to Wrestlemania trivia question.
If you’re in the southeast Missouri, southern Illinois or western Kentucky area; tickets for the WWE Road to Wrestlemania show are still available. The event is Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.
It’s that time of year again for a My 1-2-3 Cents Christmastime staple, Centy Claus to pay a visit. He’s been a part of our YouTube channel and for a second time, he’s graced us with his presence on the podcast. Centy Claus also brought presents and he’ll discuss what he’s giving to the men and women involved in wrestling (not just WWE).
Kevin also has a very brief “interview” with WWE Superstar and co-holder of the tag team titles, Xavier Woods.
Don’t forget to tune in next week for the annual Centy Awards. Like the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page, follow on Twitter and read the blog.
Kevin and Chad are looking ahead to the upcoming Hell in a Cell pay per view. (Chad will be there in the crowd) The two talk about past shows and the one match that’s been signed so far, The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar. The conversation takes plenty of twists and turns as it usually does and covers things going on in TNA and Chikara as well.
In Episode 22 Kevin provides some thoughts on the Extreme Rules pay-per-view. With new tag team champions, what’s next for the division? Will Lana and Rusev break up? And what will WWE do with Ryback? Kevin provides his 1-2-3 cents on those issues and the fate of the WWE World Heavyweight title.
