We all know about the WWE Network, commonly referred to on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network as Channel 999. Other wrestling companies are looking at that formula and offering up matches for fans to watch on demand. There’s a new venture out there called Powerbomb TV that’s bringing several indy promotions together in one central spot.
This week’s podcast is all about Powerbomb TV. The co-founder of the site, Gerard (who wrestled as Vin Gerard in Chikara Pro), goes into greater detail about how Powerbomb TV works and how fans can sign up. Right now it’s $10 a month or 100 bucks for a one-year subscription. You can sign up now for free.
There’s a big event planned on Saturday, June 11 called Break the Barrier. Gerard describes it as more of a festival than a wrestling show. Colt Cabana will be one of the many indy stars appearing on the show.
There are plenty of hot topics in the world of professional wrestling this week. Chad joined me to discuss some of them in Episode 99. Things we talk about:
*John Cena tying Ric Flair’s 16 World Title reigns
*Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series rumor
*WWE Network airing TNA & Ring of Honor shows
*WWE using WCW event names
*Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks inside Hell in a Cell
The breakdown of the WWE Network pricing (a survey, not a done deal):
If you haven’t checked out Camp WWE on the WWE Network, you’re missing out. I’ll be the first to admit, I’d never watched anything on Adult Swim before so I was leery about watching the show. Much to my surprise I enjoy it.
After tweeting about my enjoyment of the show, one of Camp WWE’s writers and one of the stars liked and commented on my post. I took this as an opportunity to invite them to be on the podcast. Actor Evan Michael Lee (@Evanmichaellee) accepted my invitation. He is the voice of Mark Henry.
We discuss the show and how he landed the role. As you might expect, Lee is also a big wrestling fan. He offers his picks for Money in the Bank too.
If you want to hear more about Money in the Bank, head to the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page. There was a live event where Chad and I discuss the upcoming show along with some of our friends.
Don’t forget, there’s a new blog everyday on My 1-2-3 Cents, follow on Twitter and Instagram (@my123cents) and subscribe to the YouTube channel. Also my other project, The Craftbeericans, is on all forms of social media. We’ll soon be doing a review of Broken Skull IPA by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
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.
It’s a special midweek edition of the podcast. Episode 8 features an interview with WWE Superstar Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior has been sidelined with an injury, but took some time to talk with Kevin about his health, his Royal Rumble prediction and more importantly his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In this episode Kevin is also joined by Nerds United host Greg Mehochko as the two talk about the upcoming Royal Rumble and share memories from their favorite versions of the yearly pay-per-view.
