This is more of a personal year in review. I'm going to talk about some of the highlights of 2011 for me in terms of wrestling, and quite honestly there are so many. I'd have to say this was the best year for me terms of wrestling. It was the first full year that this blog has been up and running and as of this entry, we're at more than 104,000 page views since September 2010. The My 1-2-3 Cents YouTube channel is also picking up steam, something that I'm proud of and vow to work harder on in 2012.
The most popular aspect of the YouTube channel is all the One on One Wrestling interviews I have posted. In 2011 alone, I've interviewed Mickie James, D'Lo Brown, Lex Luger, Nikita Koloff, and Hacksaw Jim Duggan. All of them were awesome to talk with. There's no way to pick just one specific highlight from doing these interviews, so collectively I would say having the opportunity to sit down with all of them throughout the year has been an amazing experience. I will say that my interviews with Lex and Nikita (they were at a local church together) went more than 20 minutes. Much longer than I had anticipated because I knew they were both busy, but I thank all these legends who took the time to talk with me.
Another highlight of 2011 was getting the chance to serve as a "manager" to Impact Wrestling Knockout Velvet Sky. It was part of the summer Basebrawl event at our local ballpark. I won a contest on ESPN Radio. She wrestled Angelina Love that night, who had Winter in her corner. I basically wondered around outside the ring and prevent Winter from interfering. It's something I never imagined I'd get the chance to do, and while I didn't look like Bobby Heenan or Jimmy Hart out there it was a great time.
