|"Jessie" and "Vince"|

Obviously I'm a wrestling fan. None of us would be here if I wasn't. My wrestling hangover adventure started on March 29. That was the debut of the From the Rafters Radio. It's a weekly collaborative show with Chad and my other wrestling brethren, Adam Testa of the Baltimore Sun Ring Posts blog, Chris Hagstrom who is Executive Producer for All American Pro Wrestling, and "the Wrestling Roommate" Aaron Heller.
Following the debut show, I packed my bags for my weekend getaway to Miami, site of Wrestlemania 28 and a lot of other wrestling activities.

Sunday of course was the big day. We got up bright and early to head over to WrestleReunion. Chad and I had VIP tickets, which meant we got to met and get photos with about dozen superstars from the past (and one who's still on the rise, Harry Smith) We ran into D'Lo Brown, who I interviewed on the morning show that I anchor last summer. We've kept in touch and I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered me. We chatted for a few minutes and headed around the rest of the room. Vader, Lex Luger, and the Honky Tonk Man were just a few of the legends we met. It was surreal and awesome, especially considering we were dressed like Jessie the Body Ventura and Vince McMahon circa 1986.

One of the other fun aspects of Axxess and even the hours before Mania outside the stadium is meeting up with other fans. Because Chad and I always go in costume, folks come up and talk to us and ask for photos. This makes for a good opportunity to promote My 1-2-3 Cents. Hopefully some of you met us Sunday and are reading this for the first time. If so, thanks so much, please come back.
I don't plan on getting into a big review of the show. Some people hated it. Some people loved it. I'd say I was in the middle. My biggest pet peeves though were the 18 second (although I think it seemed even shorter) world title match, the concert like intros for Rock and Cena, and Funkasaurus dancing. Don't get me wrong, I love Brodus and have since the start of this gimmick, I feel like that took valuable time from the World title match though. Check out our review below. We forgot to mention Punk and Jericho, which I thought was a pretty solid match. Glad to see Punk come out on top.
