My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 408: Wrestling Under the Influence

RVD was known as Mr. Monday Night, so it only seemed fitting to pair him with Hot Fudge Monday, a brown ale by Mirror Twin Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky. It also gives me the excuse to pitch Rob Van Dam to be a part of episode 420 of this podcast. (Fingers crossed.)

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 402: Wrestling Under the Influence

The Rock is one of the all-time greats in pro wrestling. And when I found a beer called Good Piebrations, I knew I had to dedicate this week’s podcast to the Great One. Try it too and let me know what you think.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 399: Wrestling Under the Influence

Dogs, birds, and snakes, oh my! Pets have been a big part of wrestling through the years. This week I’m toasting my favorite animals in the business while having Box of Chocolate by Charleville Microbrewery in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 398: Wrestling Under the Influence

I’m celebrating the birth of our country with some beer and Lex Luger’s WWF run. It’s another Wrestling Under the Influence and this time Hell or High Water Watermelon Beer by 21st Amendment Brewing is the beer of choice. I’m pairing it with the USA-loving version of Lex Luger from 1993-95.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 397: Wrestling Under the Influence

Steve Austin’s Broken Skull American Lager is the drink of choice for this week’s Wrestling Under the Influence. What!?! That’s right. It’s an excellent brew from El Segundo Brewing Company.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 360: Wrestling Under the Influence

Uncle Elmer is a blast from the past and the wrestler I’ve selected for Wrestling Under the Influence. No, I’m not drinking moonshine, but Elmer IPA from Minglewood Brewery in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 318: Wrestling Under the Influence

It’s the week of Christmas, and we’re celebrating with a few of our favorite Christmas related moments (and Santa Claus related appearances) in the world of pro wrestling. Chad Smart from the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network joins me to look back at some fun yuletide memories. What’s on your list?

I also try Santa’s Little Helper by Port Brewing Company. Of course, this is to keep with the Christmas theme of the show.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 309: Wrestling Under the Influence

Andre the Giant was one of the all-time greats in pro wrestling. His career kind of halted in 1990, and he never received the send-off that I, as a fan, would have liked to have seen.

So this week, I’m rebooking Andre’s final two years in wrestling and doing it with a Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter by my side. Special thanks to Tom Harness for the beer.

Do you smell what the Rock is drinking? Yes, it’s Teremana Tequila and my guest co-host Chad Smart (of the Positive Cynicism Podcasting Network #PCPN) joins me for a shot as well.

In this episode, we tackle a lot of things, including the tequila, the Rock, current WWE and AEW stories, Chad’s Stride Pro Wrestling debut and his support of the group For Kids’ Sake. Learn more about their virtual Superhero 5K right here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 291: Wrestling Under the Influence

Trainwreck. That’s probably the best way to describe 2020 so far. But it’s also the brew I’m drinking this week for Wrestling Under the Influence. The full name is 420 Strain Trainwreck by SweetWater Brewing Company in Atlanta.

Besides tasting the beer, I go on several wrestling-related tangents this week. There’s no specific focus which may or may not be a good thing. For that, I need to hear from YOU!

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 287: Wrestling Under the Influence

Quarantine has inspired new ideas for me and I tried one of them on this week’s podcast. My original plans fell through but I think something will work out for it soon, so I won’t reveal yet.

This week though, I’m joined by four members of the Stride Pro Wrestling roster; Jay Spade, Dalton Anthony, Lane Austin and Bud Gallows. We held a Zoom session where we talked about AEW, WWE and of course Stride.

I enjoyed a couple of Tail Chaser IPAs by Sleepy Dog Brewing as Dalton had Abita’s Strawberry Lager.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 283: Wrestling Under the Influence

Pity Party, table for one. That is how this podcast may sound to some. However, that is not my intent. I had big plans for this week’s show since it falls on 4/20. You can read between the lines on who I wanted as my guest…

That being said, my attempts to get Rob Van Dam on the show turned into another failed experiment. So that got my brain churning and I thought, why not review a beer in my fridge called Mad Scientist Milkshake IPA. It’s from the Experimental Series by Witchita Brewing Company. You can visit their website here.

So this week you’ll hear me kinda rant and complain about the guests who I’d always wanted but never got. I also review the beer and share some thoughts on other aspects of pro wrestling.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 274: Wrestling Under the Influence

This month’s Wrestling Under the Influence is a fun one for me. I get the chance to share a beer with my dad and talk all about Wrestling at the Chase. My dad (and I) grew up in St. Louis, so Wrestling at the Chase was a staple for him as a teenager and I watched early on in my fandom before the show went off the air.

We also drink Love Gun by Heavy Riff Brewing in St. Louis. My dad doesn’t drink much outside of the Busch family so introducing him to new craft beers has been fun.

Stride Pro Wrestling heads to Johnston City High School on Saturday, Feb. 22 and Carterville (1130 N. Division St.) on Saturday, Feb. 29. You can get all the details here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 261: Wrestling Under the Influence

As a fan who grew up watching pro wrestling in the 80s, one of my favorite pay-per-view events of all-time is the Survivor Series. The original concept has long been scrapped but for the first several years of the event, it was hard to beat.

In 1990 a twist was added. I’m not talking about the Ultimate Survivors match at the end of the night. I’m also not referring to the debut of the Undertaker. Instead, something else that night left a huge impression… the Gobbledy Gooker.

So that’s the subject of this month’s Wrestling Under the Influence. I review that awesomely bad moment in time and pair it with Leinenkugel’s Cranberry-Ginger Shandy.

The 2nd annual Stride Pro Wrestling/My 1-2-3 Cents Pro Wrestling Action Figure Toy Drive is underway now. If you donate $5 or a new wrestling action figure you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed Four Horsemen poster. If you’re not in the area, you can PayPal me kevinhunsperger@gmail.com. You’ll receive one entry for every $5 donated. I will then use that money to buy figures from Five Below.

Stride Pro Wrestling returns on Saturday, Dec. 7 with the former stars of All American Pro Wrestling for a benefit show for former wrestler Dan ‘Curly’ Summers. It’s at Black Diamond Harley Davidson in Marion and every cent raised that night goes to Curly, who is facing some serious health issues right now.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 248: Wrestling Under the Influence

Give me a hell ya, because it’s time for another edition of Wrestling Under the Influence. This month former Stride Pro Wrestling Champion Red Daniels and I try Stone Brewing Company’s Stone IPA and discuss the career of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

We also talk about life as an indy wrestler and what’s going on in Stride Pro Wrestling. We have a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. Red gets his rematch for the belt and I’m teaming up with Heath Hatton to get a shot at the tag team titles. Learn more here.

My 1-2-3 Cents Episode 180: Wrestling Under the Influence ‘Two Brothers’

Brotherly Love

It’s another episode of Wrestling Under the Influence. This week I’m joined by my buddy Dan Turnquist and we tackle 21st Anniversary by Two Brothers Brewing Company. Full disclosure, when I looked at the can, I thought the name of the beer was two brothers and that’s why I picked it. I figured we could talk about our favorite brothers in pro wrestling.

The actual beer we drank is the 21st Anniversary. However, we did just go ahead and talk about the brothers of wrestling we like the most. Some are related by blood, others are related by a storyline. However, as we discuss wrestling, in general, is a brotherhood, so it’s all good.

I’m also a sponsored athlete (stop laughing) for COLLARxELBOW brand. Shop online and use the promo code MY123CENTS and you’ll save 10%.
