Money in the Bank 2017 is in the books and it’s the first WWE event I’ve attended since WrestleMania 32 in Dallas more than a year ago. I had the fortune of watching the show in a suite with some friends from Stride Pro Wrestling. My friend and former co-worker Weston White made the trip up from Nashville for the show too.
Weston and his father-in-law Brad join me on this week’s podcast. The three of us offer up our 1-2-3 cents on the show. While I’m not stoked that Baron Corbin has the brief, I did enjoy most of the Money in the Bank. What were your thoughts?
Stride Pro Wrestling held its second show in the month of June, this time a fundraiser for the YouthBuild program of Jefferson and Marion Counties. More than $2,500 was raised, so thanks to all who attended. That includes Chad Smart who hosts Positive Cynicism on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network. He’s also been a frequent guest here on My 1-2-3 Cents.
Chad is in town and attended his first Stride Pro Wrestling show. We break down the matches and talk more about indy wrestling in general. We’re also both going to Money in the Bank Sunday and share our thoughts on the matches that have been announced so far.
Wow. What a night of wrestling. WrestleMania 33 is in the books. Roman Reigns did what he said he was going to do and beat the Undertaker. It appears this may be it for the Deadman. Look for much more on the Undertaker’s career on the My 1-2-3 Cents blogthis week.
There are also several new champions in the WWE. Naomi, Brock Lesnar, Kevin Owens, Randy Orton and The Hardy Boyz (yes you read that right) all have gold once again.
The fallout from Mania will be great to follow on Raw and SmackDown Live this week. Be sure to rate and review the podcast as well. Thanks for listening.
By now you know that Bray Wyatt has won the WWE World Heavyweight Title. On the surface, this is great news. But being a sometimes wrestling pessimist, I worry about what this means for the future. Will Bray carry the gold beyond WrestleMania in a few weeks?
This week’s episode is a quick one. And full disclosure, I had to record in the car on the way to work. Sorry for the delay. As always, thanks for listening and sharing the show.
SummerSlam 2016 is in the books and probably the best pay per view so far of the year. From the crowning of the new WWE Universal Champion (Finn Balor) to the phenomenal matchup between John Cena and AJ Styles to Charolette regaining the WWE Women’s Championship this event delivered.
Chad and I give some thoughts on the evening, but also look ahead to what’s next for the Superstars involved in the biggest party of the summer.

Whether you know him as “Ace” or “Cowboy” Bob Orton is one of the all-time greats of professional wrestling. The WWE Hall of Famer has had a lengthy career and is still active in the ring. On Saturday, June 4 Orton teams up with Bull Bronson against Dalton Diamond and Cash Bordin at the Stride Pro Wrestling show. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. at CMA in the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion.
In this week’s show Kevin chats with Orton about his career (he was on the first live wrestling card I attended in 1984), the evolution of wrestling and his son Randy Orton.

The annual Cape Comic Con was held this past weekend in Cape Girardeau, MO. Two of the featured guests were WWE Hall of Famers Terry Funk and “Cowboy” Bob Orton.
These two legends held a Q&A discussion, taking questions from the audience. Favorite matches, Cowboy Bob Orton’s Wrestlemania I experience, their favorite ribs, the evolution of the business, and sharing their love of the industry with their family.
Then they took pictures with the fans in the panel before returning to their booth. They held another meet & greet before the Wrestling at the Arena later Saturday evening.

Former WWE champion John Cena has undergone successful shoulder surgery. But as he recovers, it appears he will not be a part of Wrestlemania for the first time in more than a decade. What kind of impact will his absence have on the WWE’s biggest event of the year?
Kevin and Chad talk about that scenario and look at what the company can do to make the lack of Cena, as well as Seth Rollins and possibly Randy Orton and Cesaro less severe. The two also talk about the 2016 Royal Rumble and who should walk out the champ as well as speculation that members of the Bullet Club are WWE/NXT bound.
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.
