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 65: Kofi Kingston Talks About "The Power of Positivity"[ 17:57 | 0.01 MB ]Play Now | Play in Popup | Download (529)
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.
Episode 54 is a special one, as it marks the one year anniversary of My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast. The first show dropped December 9, 2014. Thanks to all who have listened and shared the podcast. It’s a lot of fun putting the shows together. Also thanks to Greg Mehochko, co founder of Jittery Monkey and host of Nerds United, for inviting Kevin to be a part of the “family.”
The guest this week is former WWE Diva Terri Runnels. She’s been involved in the wrestling business for more than 25 years and has evolved from her early days as Ms. Alexandra York in WCW to Marlena to Terri.
