Ten years ago Chad and I attended our first WrestleMania. We made a road trip to Chicago for a weekend of wrestling that included a Ring of Honor show, the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and WrestleMania 22.
For me, it was a dream come true. I was content with that one trip. But I also knew if the opportunity came up again I wanted to go. Luckily for me, it came up again and again and again. Chad and I have have been to eight of the last ten WrestleManias. We’re heading to Texas next month for our 11th.
In this episode of the show we talk about our favorite memories and moments. It’s not just about the ‘Mania. It’s the fun in getting to each destination, the other events we attend and of course the WrestleMania atomsphere.
As 2015 comes to a close, it’s time once again for Kevin and Chad to honor the best and worst in the world of professional wrestling. The Centy Awards have been a long standing tradition that started on the My 1-2-3 Cents blog.

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.

Kevin and Chad are looking ahead to the upcoming Hell in a Cell pay per view. (Chad will be there in the crowd) The two talk about past shows and the one match that’s been signed so far, The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar. The conversation takes plenty of twists and turns as it usually does and covers things going on in TNA and Chikara as well.
Chikara Pro’s 2015 King of Trios is in the books, and Chad was there for all three nights of action. He explains to Kevin how the tournament works and shares some of his favorite memories from the event. There was plenty of action Friday, Saturday and Sunday that saw not just the best from Chikara in the ring, but also around the world. Plus there were a handful of blasts from the past.
This week’s show is a quick one, filled with some random wrestling thoughts including WWE and Chikara Pro. Kevin talks more about the Road to Wrestlemania and a few of the bumps he sees in it, including the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, Intercontinental Title Ladder Match and Jon Stewart.
Kevin and Chad team up for this week’s show to discuss NXT and what’s next for the company after Takeover: Rival. There’s plenty of talent on the roster and who will be called up next to WWE? The two also discuss the latest happenings in Chikara, TNA and WWE.
It’s the end of the year, so Kevin and his blogging partner Chad hand out the Centy Awards. The two recognize the best and worst in the world of professional wrestling.
