Money in the Bank 2017 is in the books and it’s the first WWE event I’ve attended since WrestleMania 32 in Dallas more than a year ago. I had the fortune of watching the show in a suite with some friends from Stride Pro Wrestling. My friend and former co-worker Weston White made the trip up from Nashville for the show too.
Weston and his father-in-law Brad join me on this week’s podcast. The three of us offer up our 1-2-3 cents on the show. While I’m not stoked that Baron Corbin has the brief, I did enjoy most of the Money in the Bank. What were your thoughts?
Stride Pro Wrestling held its second show in the month of June, this time a fundraiser for the YouthBuild program of Jefferson and Marion Counties. More than $2,500 was raised, so thanks to all who attended. That includes Chad Smart who hosts Positive Cynicism on the Jittery Monkey Podcast Network. He’s also been a frequent guest here on My 1-2-3 Cents.
Chad is in town and attended his first Stride Pro Wrestling show. We break down the matches and talk more about indy wrestling in general. We’re also both going to Money in the Bank Sunday and share our thoughts on the matches that have been announced so far.
Money in the Bank 2016 is in the books and Dean Ambrose not only won the contract, but the championship on the same night. Although WWE touted this as the “greatest Money in the Bank of all time!” Kevin and Chad tend to disagree. This week the dynamic duo breaks down the event and shares their thoughts on the pay per view.
Over on the My 1-2-3 Cents YouTube channel, Kevin has a new interview up with Jeff Jarrett from Global Force Wrestling. The company will be at Rent One Park in Marion, Illinois on Friday, July 1. You can get ticket info here.

WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins was recently injured in a match against Demon Kane. That knee injury will keep Rollins out of the game for six to nine months.
WWE officials have declared the championship vacant and have promised a new champ will be crowned after a tournament at Survivor Series. As of the recording of Episode 50, the number of and names of the participants have not been announced.
Kevin and Chad share some of their thoughts on who should be in the tournament, as well as the rest of the card for Survivor Series.
We’ll know more after Monday Night Raw, but until then, listen to this week’s show and share it with others. Be sure to share your thoughts here as well.
Next week, Kevin and Chad will talk more about the tournament, the history of Survivor Series and favorite Undertaker moments as he marks 25 years with WWE at this year’s Survivor Series. We want to hear your favorite memories of the Dead Man too, so share those here as well.
