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.

Happy Halloween. I’ve been looking forward to the Halloween show for some time now and I’m happy to have had the chance to talk once again with Kobald, the Prince of All Goblins. He’s one of the stars of Chikara Pro and a member of the Batiri. If you’ve never watched, get caught up with the product via Chikaratopia.
Besides catching up with Kobald in this episode I offer up a quick review of Halloween Havoc ’91. If you’ve never watched, you’re missing out. The Chamber of Horrors match between Sting, El Gigante and The Steiners going against Big Van Vader, Cactus Jack, Abdullah the Butcher and the Diamond Studd. It’s good, campy fun to say the least.
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.
Night of Champions is in the books, but before the big event Kevin had a conversation with Jake Sharpless from Rukkus. Jake has done his homework on the history of some of the WWE’s top champions and created an amazing infographic to tell the story. Jake and Kevin discuss former and current champs and share their thoughts on Sting, Sheamus and John Cena.
In Episode 42 Kevin is trying something different. The show is completely generated by your questions via Periscope, Twitter and SnapChat. The talk revolves around Kurt Angle and his future and the upcoming Night of Champions event. Thanks for listening and sharing.
Wrestlemania finished up less than a half hour before the tape started rolling on the latest episode of My 1-2-3 Cents. Get Kevin and Chad’s thoughts on the 31st incarnation of the granddaddy of them all, and Nerds United host Greg Mehochko is there for a few thoughts as well.
In this episode Kevin and Chad break down the biggest wrestling event of the year: Wrestlemania 31. The two will discuss each match in depth and offer up their thoughts on the build and who will end up being the winner. These thoughts come from two guys who have been to eight of the last nine Wrestlemanias.
