Cheers to International Beer Day

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

August 3 is International Beer Day. Beer and pro wrestling seemingly go hand in hand. On the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast, I've started a series called Wrestling Under the Influence, which reminds me, I need to get another episode of that up soon. 

Cheers to Broken Skull IPA
In recent years I've started drinking more craft beer and enjoy visiting breweries whenever we're on the road. It's part of my experiences with the Craftbeericans that has opened my eyes to many different kinds of beer. Thanks to my buddy Tom Harness, I've even had "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's Broken Skull IPA. I'm not a huge fan of IPAs usually, but this one is pretty damn good.

For this post, I'm going to chat about a few wrestlers I'd enjoy sharing a beer with. It goes without saying my friends on the Stride Pro Wrestling roster are all on that list. But someone I am really looking forward to having a beer with and doing a podcast is Ax Allwardt. He's a man's man when it comes to swigging brews. He's a master with the 12-ounce curls but puts the work in the gym throwing the heavy weight around too. I know we'll get together sooner rather than later when our schedules allow. 

Of course Stone Cold is on my list too. What? Austin is a goal to have on an episode of 'Another Round with Tom and Kevin' too. He's arguably the biggest Superstar of all-time and sitting down with him just for one beer would be a once in a lifetime experience. I'd love to pick his brain on a number of topics, but just having a chance to sit and talk with a legend like Austin would be amazing.

The Rock
The same can be said for the Rock. To me, there is no one cooler in the world than the Rock. He's come so far in his career and has become a major influencer in not just pro wrestling but Hollywood and beyond. Who knows, he could become a player in the world of politics in the future. I thought I was the shit when he liked a tweet of mine a few years ago. 

Who's on your list of sharing a beer with? And don't forget, Stride Pro Wrestling returns Saturday night, Aug. 4 at John A. Logan College in Carterville. Bell time is 6:30 p.m.
