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.

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.
Stride Pro Wrestling has a show Saturday, June 8 at the building in Carterville. It’s Battle Bowl! Learn more here.
This week on the podcast, a look back on 1984. It’s a strange thing, I know. But I explain it all in the show. Plus a few wrestling-related memories at Christmastime. And a special guest kicks things off this week.
Merry Christmas and join in next week for the Centy Awards. The show will drop on New Year’s Day.
Don’t forget, I’m also now a part of COLLARxELBOW. You can shop online and use the promo code MY123CENTS to save on t-shirts when you shop. The company has added some new shirts in recent weeks. It’s a great way to support indy wrestling and My 1-2-3 Cents. Thanks as always for your support.
When I hear or see “scorched earth,” I immediately think of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s “March to the Sea” in the Civil War. But after the overtime loss to Northwestern, it was time for Hoss Reuter to go scorched earth.
The only problem is that after six days, even that was tempered a bit. While Hoss believes the end of the Mike Riley era is nigh, his scorched earth approach was quite mild. I’m no historian, but if Sherman would have marched to Savannah like Hoss railed on the coaching staff, the North may have been turned away in Macon.
That being said, we believe a change is in the air. And after talking about the loss to the Wildcats, we discuss the “rumor and innuendo” that surrounds the Husker football program. And what can be done to get the best in-state athletes to play for Big Red, so that the Noah Fant’s of the world rip apart Ohio State while wearing the Scarlet and Cream?
Also we hit up the Facebook page and talk about the Tunnel Walk and playing for pride, if nothing else.
And stick around to the end to find out how to win a FREE box of food from Hello Fresh! Lots going on this week and we do appreciate you listening and sharing the show with the Husker fans in your life.
It’s the end of the year and Kevin and Chad are celebrating with the annual Centy Awards. As you can see by the picture “Broken” Matt Hardy and Charlotte Flair are among the honorees. What do these two wrestlers have in common? Listen to the show!
The Ric Flair Show has weekly guests ranging from Cody Rhodes to Kurt Angle to Ken Patera and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine. Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard is a weekly stroll down memory lane as Prichard recalls certain storylines during his time in WWE. I love the format of this show in particular.
On My 1-2-3 Cents the Podcast we discuss both shows and how Conrad went from wrestling fan to hanging out with the greatest of all time. We also talk about current events in wrestling and our thoughts on the state of WWE.
I’m also starting a new contest. Go to iTunes, subscribe and leave a rating and a review. Screenshot it and tag me on social media with it. The My 1-2-3 Cents prize vault is full and we need to get things out you!
I recently was asked to start contributing to the new website Breaking Wrestling News. A trio of fans put the site together in late 2015. Greg DeMarco, Mike Bessler and Joe Burgett are the founders of the site.
There are several contributors, covering wrestling promotions around the world as well as MMA. On this week’s podcast, I chat with Greg about his experiences with the site and some of his memories as a wrestling fan.
He has a very interesting take on what will happen at FastLane and eventually Wrestlemania 32. We also discuss a few of the past week’s big news headlines, including Daniel Bryan’s retirement, his future with the company and Titus O’Neil’s suspension. Listen closely, as I ask a question for the “Road to Wrestlemania” contest based on Greg’s thoughts for Wrestlemania. You can answer it on Facebook.
You can follow Breaking Wrestling News on Facebook and Twitter. Also, check out My 1-2-3 Cents the blog. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@my123cents on both) and subscribe to the YouTube channel. I posted a new video this past week and plan to do more soon.
Growing up in the 80’s, we had Underoos. They were dubbed “underwear that’s fun to wear” and included super heroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. As a wrestling fan, I’d always hoped my favorite WWF/E Superstars would be represented, but it never happened.
Fast forward 30 plus years and Jonathan Bowles had a vision: WrassleRoos. It’s pro wrestling underwear for adults. But not only can you find briefs in the likeness of legends like “Macho Man” Randy Savage, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, you can also choose from a variety of custom made, vintage t-shirts. Boxer shorts are also available.
The story behind the success of WrassleRoos is truly remarkable. Listen to this week’s show and find out how Colt Cabana and CM Punk each played a role in putting these unique under garments on the map.
