My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 310: Wrestling with the 90s

Halloween Havoc is a pay-per-view brand that got its start back in 1989. For 12 years, it was one of WCW’s biggest events, some years trumping Starrcade.

Now, 20 years after the last WCW Halloween Havoc, WWE brings back the concept with NXT. This week, Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to talk more about our favorite moments from this banner event.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 305: The Interview

One of my favorite things about Stride Pro Wrestling is the opportunities being given to young talent. B-Rad is one of the trainees at the Stride Pro Wrestling School and is currently the company’s Legacy Champion.

B-Rad, aka Tristan McPeak, shares stories of his fandom and how he transitioned from sitting in the front row to winning his first wrestling championship. We also learn a few fun facts about B-Rad as well.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 302: Beyond ThunderDome

COVID-19 has put a damper on a lot of things but it has also provided us with new opportunities like WWE’s ThunderDome. The technology gives fans watching a home the live crowd experience that’s been missing since quarantine started in the spring.

I tried getting in on the action for SummerSlam and even after getting an email telling me I was in, I was in fact not. However, my guest co-host this week was in attendance for the biggest party of the summer. Jeff Holtke shares his experiences with ThunderDome.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 300: Celebrating 1985

We made it to 300 episodes! To celebrate, I figured I’d connect two of my favorite formats for the show, Wrestling with the 80s and Wrestling Under the Influence.

My buddy Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me for this look back at the year 1985. I also enjoy a couple of cold ones, appropriately called 1985 by New Belgium Brewing Company.

Listening to the crowd is one of the biggest rules in wrestling. However, it’s been more difficult to do because of COVID-19. This week on the podcast, Stride Pro Wrestling’s Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I talk about the importance of an audience and some of the things Tyler has learned through the years.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 297: Go Figure!

It’s an exciting time to be a wrestling action figure collector. Even as I write this, announcements are being made about new figures being released for both WWE and AEW.

This week on the podcast, I’m joined by Red Daniels of Stride Pro Wrestling. He’s got his hands on the Chris Jericho ‘Little Bit of the Bubbly’ figure (early release through Ringside Collectibles).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 296: The Interview

People who know me, know that right behind my love for pro wrestling is a love for socks. That love became even more pronounced a few years ago when I discovered a company called Odd Sox.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve weeded out all of my ‘normal’ socks and have nothing but usually designed footwear, including many of the WWE Superstars in the Odd Sox collection. This week on the pod, I chat with Justin Brown, the marketing director at Odd Sox Official. Shop their website here and see for yourself why it’s okay to be odd.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 294: 2 Is Greater Than 1

*GONG* *GONG* *GONG*

Cue the Undertaker. What an amazing 30-year career he’s had in WWE. I can still remember watching him in World Class and WCW as The Punisher and ‘Mean’ Mark Callous respectively.

Then in 1990 at the Survivor Series, a new character was born. I think it would be hard to argue that the Undertaker is the greatest gimmick/character of all-time in wrestling. His loyalty to Vince McMahon and the fans is nothing short of remarkable.

This week on the podcast, my co-host Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton and I discuss the Undertaker’s amazing body of work. This is just the tip of the iceberg as I imagine we’ll have more discussions about the Undertaker throughout the next few months on the various My 1-2-3 Cents shows.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 293: Wrestling Without Fans

Full disclosure: I recorded this podcast more than a week ago and just as the sh!t was hitting the fan with allegations against wrestlers, promoters and companies. So you’re not going to hear much about that on this show.

However, my co-host Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network and I discuss the fact that wrestling is still going on today with minimal crowds. What are your thoughts on this ‘new norm’?

It’s the post-Father’s Day episode of the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast. We’re talking about some of the best father figures in the world of pro wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 291: Wrestling Under the Influence

Trainwreck. That’s probably the best way to describe 2020 so far. But it’s also the brew I’m drinking this week for Wrestling Under the Influence. The full name is 420 Strain Trainwreck by SweetWater Brewing Company in Atlanta.

Besides tasting the beer, I go on several wrestling-related tangents this week. There’s no specific focus which may or may not be a good thing. For that, I need to hear from YOU!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 290: Let’s Be Positive

Full disclosure for this week’s show. I had two different guests lined up but unfortunately, things fell through at the last minute with each.  So that means I had to call an audible and do something I had planned for later in the month while I’m on vacation.

Almost one year ago, I made a career change and left the world of broadcast news after 22 years. I’ve already done a show with some clips of wrestling interviews I conducted as a news anchor. Today, in an effort to spread some positivity, I’m sharing the Cameo videos my friends sent me after I made the career change.

Instead of hearing me talk about a random topic for 30 or more minutes, I decided to go this route. It’s an ego boost for me for sure. But it’s also positive content to insert into a world that right now is filled with hate and negativity.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 288: Wrestling with the 90s

May 27, 1996 is a day that will live in wrestling infamy. It’s the day Scott Hall, known by fans at the time as Razor Ramon, showed up on WCW Nitro. It was significant because Hall had been with WWF for four years and showing up on the competition’s program and declaring war with them made it look like WWF had sent him.

We’d later learn this was the seed planting fo the nWo and one of the greatest angles in the history of wrestling. My co-host Chad Smart and I dissect the period leading up to Hall’s jump and do some ‘what if’ scenarios along the way.

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.

The first Monday of a new month and that means it’s time for another edition of 2 is Greater Than 1. My guest co-host is Stride Pro Wrestling’s Tyler ‘Heath’ Hatton. This week we discuss a variety of topics; including the future of Stride, 25 years of Triple H, the Boneyard Match from WrestleMania, Star Wars, AEW and much more.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 284: Wrestling with the 80s

We’re just a couple weeks away from the 35 year anniversary of the very first Saturday Night’s Main Event. The show debuted May 11, 1985, from the Nassau County Coliseum.

So, I’ve turned to Jason Skull of the Skullbuster WrestleCast to take a trip down memory lane and chat more about that first episode. From Hulk Hogan to Roddy Piper to Wendi Richter, the show was stacked.

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 282: Our Chris Benoit Stories

Chris Benoit’s last 48 hours on Earth are some of the most polarizing times in the world of professional wrestling. However, Benoit had a huge impact on fans and other wrestlers throughout the years. This week, I’m joined by Stride Pro Wrestling’s Shane Rich. He shares a unique experience with us about meeting Benoit.

We are not glorifying the tragedies or making light of them in any way. We are just two pro wrestling (and Chris Benoit) fans remembering a different time in our business.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 280: WPW Watch Along

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 279: The Interview

I’ve known Dalton Anthony for a few years now, first hearing him on the Podzilla 1985 Pro Wrestling Unscripted podcast. Then he and some of his co-hosts came to a Stride Pro Wrestling show as fans. But it wasn’t long before that fandom turned into Dalton stepping through the ropes.

He’s been wrestling in both Stride and Cape Championship Wrestling for more than a year and continues to improve. In fact, he’s now a co-holder of the Stride Pro Wrestling Tag Team Titles with Jay Spade. Expect big things from the Wrestling Buddies in the weeks and months to come.

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.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns to the Stride Arena (1130 N. Division St.) in Carterville, Illinois on Saturday, April 11. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for kids and $10 for adults. Be a part of the action!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 277: Wrestling with the 90s

‘The British Bulldog’ Davey Boy Smith will go down as one of the all-time greats of professional wrestling. He and Dynamite Kid are still my favorite tag team of all-time. The Bulldog happens to be the all-time favorite of my co-host this week, Bo Sawyer.

Bo and I discuss our fandom for DBS as well as some of Bo’s professional wrestling career. He is the Stride Pro Wrestling No Limits Champion (and defends the title Saturday, March 14 against Dexter Roswell at Strideiversary). He’s also the TSW Heavyweight Champion.

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.

The new year always means it’s time for the best pay-per-view event of the year, the Royal Rumble. We’re keeping the tradition alive of chatting about past Rumbles here on the podcast. This week, my guest co-host is Luke Lay, the co-host of the greatest Royal Rumble parties I’ve ever attended…

This year we break down the 1990 Rumble and the build to the match at WrestleMania VI between Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior.

As 2019 comes to a close it’s time once again to reflect on the year in wrestling. And what a year it was. Admittedly it’s hard to keep up with it all, but Chad Smart (from the PCPN) and I discuss the year as well as the past decade.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 263: 2 is Greater Than 1

This month Kevin and Tyler continue to look back on All American Pro Wrestling and ahead to this Saturday’s Stride Pro Wrestling show. Many AAPW stars will be returning that night for Curly’s benefit. It’s at Black Diamond Harley Davidson in Marion and every cent raised that night goes to Curly, who is facing some serious health issues right now.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 261: Wrestling Under the Influence

As a fan who grew up watching pro wrestling in the 80s, one of my favorite pay-per-view events of all-time is the Survivor Series. The original concept has long been scrapped but for the first several years of the event, it was hard to beat.

In 1990 a twist was added. I’m not talking about the Ultimate Survivors match at the end of the night. I’m also not referring to the debut of the Undertaker. Instead, something else that night left a huge impression… the Gobbledy Gooker.

So that’s the subject of this month’s Wrestling Under the Influence. I review that awesomely bad moment in time and pair it with Leinenkugel’s Cranberry-Ginger Shandy.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com. You’ll receive one entry for every $5 donated. I will then use that money to buy figures from Five Below.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns on Saturday, Dec. 7 with the former stars of All American Pro Wrestling for a benefit show for former wrestler Dan ‘Curly’ Summers. It’s at Black Diamond Harley Davidson in Marion and every cent raised that night goes to Curly, who is facing some serious health issues right now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 259: 2 is Greater Than 1

The world of professional wrestling has a variety of memorable characters. One of the most memorable I’ve had the chance to work with is Curly. The man behind the gimmick, which is dedicated to the 3 Stooges is Dan Summers. Unfortunately, Dan is having some major medical issues right now.

That’s where his brothers and sisters in wrestling are stepping in. On Saturday, Dec. 7 Stride Pro Wrestling presents AAPW Ressurection. All American Pro Wrestling was at one time a huge force in southern Illinois and Curly was one of the biggest attractions on the roster.

Now, many stars from AAPW are coming together to wrestle for Stride. The show is happening at the Black Diamond Harley Davidson Warehouse and 100% of the money raised that night will be donated to Curly and his family. Get your tickets here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 258: Wrestling Under the Influence

Cheers! It’s time for another Wrestling Under the Influence. This month Tom Skull from the Skullbuster Wrestlecast and Tom & Jim’s Top 5 joins me. We drink two different beers, Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA by Stone Brewing Company and Shenangians by Indeed Brewing.

Of course, we center the conversation around Sting and his 1990 nemesis the Black Scorpion. It’s a great conversation as we stroll down memory lane with some good beer.

My 1-2-3 Cents Ep. 257: Wrestling with the 80s

It’s been 30 years since the first Halloween Havoc. WCW came up with the concept and it ended up being a successful formula for the company. Did you know Halloween Havoc had a better rating than Starrcade 6 of the 12 years they were around? One year it was a tie and five times Starrcade rated higher.

This week though, we’re focused on that first year and the build-up to the Thunderdome match between Ric Flair and Sting vs. Terry Funk and the Great Muta.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 253: Wrestling with the 80s

When it comes to great wrestling families, I put the Von Erichs near the top of the list. I grew up in the 80s when Von Erich Mania was running wild. So did my guest co-host this week, Travis Yates (@thetravisyates on Twitter).

We stroll down memory lane and share our thoughts on this iconic family and throw in a few ‘what if’ style scenarios. It’s a great conversation and tribute to one of our all-time favorite families in wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 250: 2 is Greater Than 1: New Champs

Never in my life did I think I’d have an opportunity to wrestle for a championship. That dream came true last week and my partner and I were successful in our effort.

Yes, Heath Hatton and I are the new Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champions. We beat Tony Flood and Jay Spade at Bash at the Ballpark. However, we defend our belts this Saturday, Sept. 7 at Revenge in Carterville. You can learn more here.

In this week’s episode of Two is Greater than One, Heath and I talk about the night we won the titles, why he decided to go in this direction and wrap things up with the new feature Three for the Road. So, who are your three favorite tag teams? Bonus if the Baby Oil Buddies (that’s us) is on your list. 🙂

Welcome to the debut of 2 is Greater Than 1, a monthly segment on this podcast. I will be joined on the first Monday of each month by Heath Hatton. The title of the show comes from a line he used during a handicap match against Ryback at Extreme Rules 2012. The two of us are now tag team partners in Stride Pro Wrestling as well.

We have a lot to discuss this month, including the passing of legendary wrestler Harley Race, Stride Pro Wrestling and the upcoming shows for that company.

I never turn down the chance to do an interview (whether in person or on the phone) with someone involved in pro wrestling. Such is the case with my guest this week, WWE Superstar Aleister Black. He was doing promos for the SummerSlam Heatwave Tour which made a stop in Cape Girardeau, MO. While I had Black on the phone we chatted about his character, his career and life on the road. This week’s episode is also an Ask My 1-2-3 Cents, so thanks for participating.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 243: Summer of ’89

Forget the ‘Summer of 69’, we’re talking about the Summer of 89, specifically in pro wrestling. From ‘No Holds Barred’ to Dusty Rhodes in the WWF to Ric Flair’s face turn it was quite a summer. Co-host Chad Smart (Positive Cynicism) and I discuss that period and share our thoughts.

I don’t know if this is the best title for the show, but I do talk a lot about both companies. While I am a WWE loyalist, I am glad there is going to be something else out there for fans to choose from. And it seems AEW is keeping WWE on its toes for now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 238: From Fan to Pro

When you’re a fan of something, typically your view of whatever it may be changes once you get a peak behind the curtain. Good or bad, it’s inevitable when you know how the magic is made, you view it differently. That was my experience when I started ring announcing. And that’s the case for this week’s guest, Stride Pro Wrestling tag team champion Tony Flood. We discuss his fandom and transition into the ring.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 235: 20 Minutes of Ranting

Don’t be too worried about the title. I am ranting, but it’s not a full 20 minutes. Basically, I’m fed up with the ‘fake news’ out there concerning wrestling. I share my views on that and more in this week’s episode.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 233: The Ref’s POV

Last year I introduced listeners to my friend, Lane Austin. At that time he was Stride Pro Wrestling’s senior official. Many times, he was the only referee on hand.

But Lane has had some health issues and that ended in a double organ transplant. For the first time since the surgery, Lane and I sat down and talked about how he’s doing, his love for wrestling and why he enjoys being a ref. Check it out!

WrestleMania is still the premiere event of the year in the world of Sports Entertainment. I love watching it each year, but in the early years of WrestleMania it was much more special.

Since everyone is speculating on who Kurt Angle’s last opponent should be, I figured I’d jump on board too.

It’s a new episode of My 1-2-3 Cents the podcast. This week the new Stride Pro Wrestling Champion Red Daniels joins me as co-host. Since he just returned to the ring after being buried alive in Dec. 2017, I thought it only made sense to share our favorite wrestling returns.

Wow, what a show! Strideiversary (the 3 year anniversary show for Stride Pro Wrestling) is in the books and proved to be the best show the company has put on.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 220: In this Corner

Indy wrestling has become a big part of my life over the past three years. I’ve been the ring announcer for Stride Pro Wrestling since March 2016. You’ve heard from several Stride wrestlers on this podcast.

That’s exactly what you’re going to hear this week too. But from the corner of the locker room. Time constraints prevented me from having more guests, but three of Stride’s top good guys took some time to chat with me. You’ll have to listen to find out who joins the show this week.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 217: The Gorilla Position

I’ve made a lot of friends over the years thanks to professional wrestling. One of them is Ryan Boman. But he’s not your average wrestling fan. Ryan has created a website called The Gorilla Position and is telling the stories of pro wrestling’s storytellers.

From there Ryan and his team developed Pinned.Biz which works to help market the men and women in the world of pro wrestling. I love the concept of both of his websites and we talk all about the idea behind them both in this week’s podcast.

Ryan also shares some thoughts on the landscape of today’s pro wrestling scene; including the creation of All Elite Wrestling. Plus, he was in Nashville recently covering Impact Wrestling’s Homecoming event. Give it a listen and check him out on social media too (@RyanKBoman & @GWPWeb on Twitter).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 216: “The King” Chris Hargas

Wrestling royalty has been crowned in Stride Pro Wrestling. “The King” Chris Hargas now rules over the kingdom. He and I go one-on-one in this week’s My 1-2-3 Cents. He talks about the idea for being king and offers some advice to young wrestlers out there.

I also pay tribute to “Mean” Gene Okerlund on this week’s show and recap the latest event by Stride.

The Centy Goes To…

It’s the end of another year and Chad and Kevin are back with the annual Centy Awards. The categories were trimmed down a bit compared to previous years, but the discussion is a meaningful one. Let us know how you will look back on the world of pro wrestling in 2018.

On a separate note, I’d like to thank all of you who have taken time to listen to the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast, read the blog or watch videos on YouTube and Facebook. It means the world to me. I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2019 and look for more announcements soon!

My 1-2-3 Cents Wrestling Under the Influence

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.

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 212: ‘Christmas Break’ Recap

Christmas Break

Stride Pro Wrestling celebrated the holiday season with the show Christmas Break over the weekend. It was an action-packed event that had many twists and turns as we close out 2018. I’m already looking forward to our next show, Jan. 5, 2019.

This week on the podcast I recap the event, look ahead to the future and answer more of your questions. It’s a fun episode and it’s less than 30 minutes so you’ve got time to listen.

The My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Tees store is up and running. Get a shirt in time for Christmas.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 211: Ugly Christmas Suit Guys

Ugly Christmas Suit

Last year I joined forces with my buddy Tom Harness (Harness Digital Marketing) for the #UglyChristmasSuit fundraiser. Together we raised just over $8,300 for a non-profit group here in southern Illinois called Children Home + Aid. This year we’re doing it again, but for Honor Wreaths for Veterans. Please donate here.

Tom and I discuss the fundraiser in this week’s podcast and of course tie it into the world of pro wrestling. Tom also reviews the importance of branding for all of us, not just pro wrestlers.

Other notes this week, Stride Pro Wrestling’s Christmas Break show is Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Stride Arena (1130 N. Division Street in Carterville, Illinois). Bell time is 6:30 p.m., doors open at 6. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Be there, it’s gonna be a great night of family-friendly pro wrestling action. Bring a new, pro wrestling action figure for the first ever Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents toy drive. All donations are going to Toys for Tots and you could win a prize too!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 210: #AskMy123Cents

You Ask, I Answer

It’s another installment of #AskMy123Cents. But before the Q&A, I pay tribute to Larry Matysik. The legendary voice of Wrestling at the Chase died over the weekend after a long illness.

Other notes this week, Stride Pro Wrestling’s Christmas Break show is Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Stride Arena (1130 N. Division Street in Carterville, Illinois). Bell time is 6:30 p.m., doors open at 6.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 209: Random Wrestling Road Trip

On the road again

Last week I headed to Las Vegas for a tryout with Impact Wrestling (to be a ring announcer). You can read about the experience here or just listen to this week’s show.

I recorded it on the road from Mt. Vernon after announcing an indy show (IWA-Productions). Road Warrior Animal Warrior was the special guest. I talk about indy wrestling, the Impact experience and Survivor Series memories on this week of Thanksgiving.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 208: That Didn’t Age Well

Piper vs. Adonis

I’m kicking off a new feature on My 1-2-3 Cents the podcast. That Didn’t Age Well will focus on a storyline or character from pro wrestling’s past and explore why it wouldn’t work today. First up is the feud between “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and “Adorable” Adrian Adonis.

Please don’t interpret this as a way to bash the past. Chad Smart from Positive Cynicism joins me for the show. We are simply looking at the storyline from 1986 and how fans reacted to it back then. We’re both fans of Hot Rod so there’s nothing negative in what we say.

It’s almost Christmas. Check out the latest design in the My 1-2-3 Cents store on Pro Wrestling Tees. Celebrate a Centmas Vacation!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 207: Taya Valkyrie

Lucha Royalty

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).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 206: Bo Sawyer

Monster Hunter

It’s almost Halloween, and we’re celebrating it here at My 1-2-3 Cents with one-third of the Midwest Monster Hunters, Bo Sawyer. He has been a part of Stride Pro Wrestling for nearly a year but has more than a decade of experience under his belt on the indy wrestling scene.

On the show, we talk about what monsters Bo and his partners have hunted and what’s still out there to conquer. You can follow Bo, Jason Tiller and Blaine Black here. Also, be sure to weigh in on the Who Should Have Been Champion tournament on the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page.

Shop the My 1-2-3 Cents shop on Pro Wrestling Tees. More designs are coming soon (I swear).

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 205: Arron Brooks

New Legacy Champ

Arron Brooks is the new Stride Pro Wrestling Legacy Champion. You may remember our conversation from back in June. At that time he’d been named the number one contender to the title. Since then he captured the championship in a fantastic four-way ladder match. For that match, Brooks had himself painted (courtesy artist Mackenzie Blades) as Venom.

After the match, the online haters started rearing their ugly heads. Arron and I talk about that in this week’s podcast along with this future as the Legacy Champion.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 204: ‘T-Dog’ Jerry Travelstead

Mr. T Rules

The number 204 means a lot to this week’s guest, ‘T-Dog’ Jerry Travelstead. He’s the superintendent and principal at Community Consolidated School District 204 in Pinckneyville, Illinois. He is also the man behind many of Stride Pro Wrestling’s fundraiser shows.

Jerry won the ‘All Out of Bubblegum’ Award during the 2017 Centy Awards. It’s because of his giving spirit and wanting to help as many people as he can. We talk about the fundraising side of indy wrestling and what he looks forward to accomplishing inside and outside the ring. You can reach out to Jerry through this site.

Until noon CST on Oct. 14 there is a sale happening on Pro Wrestling Tees. You’ll save 20% on your purchase by using the code RETAIL at checkout. Of course, I’d love for you to buy a Mondo the Monkey shirt, but supporting any of the stores is great. Shop here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 203: Locker Room Melee

Stride Pro Wrestling returns

Stride Pro Wrestling’s most recent show, Locker Room Melee, certainly lived up to its name. In this week’s episode, I do a quick recap of the show, including the injury Tony Flood suffered during the main event. I have a whole new respect for Flood after that encounter.

Abyss was part of the show as well. I had a great chat with him early in the evening. You can read more about his match with Roger Matheus here. Plus all your other favorites from Stride Pro Wrestling were a part of the event.

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 202: Abyss

Hall of Fame Inductee

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.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 201: Hulk Hogan vs. Braun Strowman

Ask My 1-2-3 Cents

This week’s episode is a #AskMy123Cents. I took to social media (late of course) and got a few questions, including who on the current WWE roster I would book against Hulk Hogan in his prime. By the title of this show, you’ve figured out it’s Braun Strowman.

I enjoy the interaction with other fans to make this show possible. Thanks to everyone who interacts on the various forms of social media. You can always reach out here or on any of the usual platforms.

Also, I’ve got a store on Pro Wrestling Tees. The monkey shirt is the only one currently available, but new designs are coming soon. Thanks to those who have already bought a shirt. Click here to shop.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 200: The Clip Show

Thanks for Listening

Wow. Time certainly flies by. I can’t believe episode 200 is already here. After some failed attempts at getting guests like Road Warrior Animal, Kevin Sullivan, Matt Riddle and Brutus “The F’ing Barber” Beefcake, I decided to do a clip show.

This week I’m sharing a few clips from the dozens of interviews I’ve done over the past four years. So today, you’ll hear from Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria), Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Cash Borden, Heath Hatton, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Conrad Thompson.

Pro-Wrestling-Tees-My123CentsI’m also working on naming the monkey. Head to the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page and vote on the two finalists. And if you’re looking to add to your wrestling tee shirt addiction, try the new My 1-2-3 Cents shirt on Pro Wrestling Tees.

Be sure to check out Stride Pro Wrestling on Friday, Sept. 21. Learn more about that show and other events here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 199: What’s Next???

The future…

This week’s show is probably a bit more ‘gloom and doom’ than I intended it to be. I’ve just been doing a lot of self-reflection on and looking at the areas of my branding that are working and not working. I’ve become complacent with the podcast and for that, I apologize.

What’s next? What do you want to hear on the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast? I don’t want people to listen out of loyalty. I want listeners who look forward to a new episode dropping each week. Be honest in your comments.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 198: All In recap

All In & Starrcast

All In & Starrcast weekend is a wrap. Longtime My 1-2-3 Cents supporter Jeff Holtke was there with his buddy Brenden O’Neill spent the weekend in Chicago. Jeff served as a special correspondent on the My 1-2-3 Cents Twitter page over the weekend, providing pics and recaps of the sights and sounds.

I had a chance to catch up with the two on the phone after All In and before they headed back for the final day of Starrcast. They met lots of legends and current wrestlers. You’ll hear more about their experience and their thoughts the show.

Reminder: Stride Pro Wrestling has a show coming up this Saturday, Sept. 8 as part of Carterville Free Fair. The show is at the Carterville Community Center. Bell time is 6:30 p.m.

Get your hands on a My 1-2-3 Cents T-shirt. I’ve signed on with Pro Wrestling Tees. The first is on sale now. Look for more designs soon.  Shop here (and thank you to those who have already purchased.)

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 197: Make WWE Great Again

Our Six Cents

Chad Smart from Positive Cynicism and I have been pro wrestling fans for more than three decades. We’ve traveled to indy shows together as well as nine different WrestleManias. Despite our love for the business, there are some things we’d tweak and make different. Today’s episode is six things we’d do to make WWE great again. (Although I still think it’s pretty awesome.)

Weigh in and let us know what you’d do if you could make a change or two (or six) within the company. While you’re at it, leave a review of My 1-2-3 Cents on whichever podcasting app you listen to.

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 194: Stride Preview and Review

Stride Pro Wrestling returns

After a two-month summer break, Stride Pro Wrestling is back in full force. Saturday, August 4 saw the return of the company. The tag team titles changed hands and a new number one contender was named.
But we’re not finished there. The company heads to Eldorado High School for a benefit show for Sarah Miles-Keltner. The young mother of three is battling stage four cancer. Every penny raised that night in Eldorado goes to the family.
You can hear more about that show and a recap of Stride’s return from over the weekend in today’s podcast. Also, keep up at My 1-2-3 Cents as well as the social media pages for          My 1-2-3 Cents and Stride Pro Wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 193: Triumph over Tragedy

Be a friend

This week’s podcast is a hodgepodge of feelings that all ooze out at once. I talk about the deaths of Nikolai Volkoff, Brickhouse Brown and Brian Christopher. It’s hard to find triumph over tragedy. And I’ll admit at times it’s a bit of a rant. My hope is you’ll listen to this show and be more prepared to help others in your network who may need it.

I also tackle brand building toward the end of the show and my efforts to make My 1-2-3 Cents a household word. Any advice or help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Speaking of which, I have a Pro Wrestling Tees store opening soon. Stay tuned for those details.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 191: Superfan Goldust

Remember the name…

Goldust… one of my all-time favorite ‘gimmick’ wrestlers. When he debuted in 1995 in the WWE he had the world talking. Gone were the cowboy boots, hat and jeans Dustin Rhodes had once worn to the ring. Goldust changed the game. He was ahead of his time.

Fast forward 23 years later and not only is Goldust still in the ring and kicking ass, but we’re still talking about this iconic Superstar. He is the subject of this week’s Superfan episode. Dalton Anthony from Pro Wrestling Unscripted and I chat about Goldust and his legacy in the business.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 190: The Pounce Seen ‘Round the World

Pounced

Pro wrestling no doubt has had its share of memorable moments. We just recently marked the 20 year anniversary of Mick Foley being thrown off the top of the Hell in a Cell by the Undertaker. Recently another thrilling moment happened, this time on the indy wrestling scene.

Empire State Wrestling Interstate Champion Anthony Gaines was defending his title against Ace Romero. Chances are you’ve seen what happened in the match. Romero, who is about 300 pounds heavier than Gaines, hit him with a pounce that launched Gaines like I’ve never seen before. Watch it here.

Gaines and I talk all about the experience and his time training as a pro wrestler. He’s clearly a man who is dedicated to the business and I wish him nothing but the best in this crazy world of pro wrestling.

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 Episode 188: Favorite Wrestling Storylines

Our 6 Cents

It’s time for another installment of ‘Our 6 Cents’, a concept we clearly ripped off from Tom & Jim’s Top 5. This month Chad Smart from Positive Cynicism and I are counting down our favorite pro wrestling storylines. Between the two of us, we have about 70 years of fandom in pro wrestling. So yes we’re old and we explore a lot of ground with this topic.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 187: Arron Brooks

Meet Brookspool

I’ve met a lot of amazing performers in my seven years of indy wrestling. Arron Brooks is one of them. He has come a long way from his days as AT Brooks. That evolution is part of the conversation in this week’s podcast. We talk about his wrestling fandom along with his love for comic books, Star Wars and Power Rangers.

Arron wrestles around the Midwest. He’s looking to grow his appearances. You can connect with Arron via his Facebook page.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 186: #AskMy123Cents

Q&A Time

Sometimes life gets a little crazy. There was no time for a guest this week and no Stride Pro Wrestling shows to promote or recap, so I went back to the standby of doing an Ask My 1-2-3 Cents episode.

Several listeners shared questions on social media, so I tackle those this week. I also pose a question for you. When Chad and I do another Our 6 Cents episode, what topic would you like us to cover? Weigh in here or send a message via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 185: Superfan “Macho Man” Randy Savage

“Cream of the crop”

“Macho Man” Randy Savage is one of the all-time greats in the world of professional wrestling. I have fond memories of Savage during his run in the WWF and the build-up to him winning the championship 30 years ago.

This week on the podcast, it’s another Superfan edition. Lane Austin, Stride Pro Wrestling referee and Cape Championship Wrestling general manager, is a “Macho Man” Superfan. So I asked him about his fandom of Savage and some of his favorite memories. We chatted prior to a recent Stride Pro Wrestling event in Christopher, Illinois.
