Happy Go Figure Friday. Today I'm feeling blue. Not really... Just talking more about the Big Blue Steel Cage. This came out in 1986 to go along with the WWF LJN Superstars.

AUDIO: Stop spreading fake news

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

I hate the phrase 'fake news', but I hate the people and websites that spread this kind of crap even more. We saw a lot of it last week with Ric Flair's trip to the hospital. I use my platform this week to rant about it and talk about the damage involved.

VIDEO: Go Figure Friday: Why Ted Arcidi?

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

I'm not knocking Ted Arcidi, former WWE Superstar and strongman extraordinaire. But I guess it may come off that way. I simply wonder why he had an LJN figure made in his likeness while other top stars of that era did not. 

Check out this week's Go Figure Friday and don't forget to subscribe. Thanks!

Stride Pro Wrestling presents: School's Out for Summer

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

Things are certainly heating up in Stride Pro Wrestling just in time for summer. This Friday night (May 17) the indy company heads to Community Consolidated School 204 in Pinckneyville, Illinois for a special fundraiser. It's called School's Out for Summer and features several great matches.

Jerry 'T-Dog' Travelstead and Dexter Roswell have seemingly been at odds since the two arrived in Stride in late 2016. Their matches have been great, including a paddle match in October 2017. WWE Hall of Famer Ricky 'the Dragon' Steamboat was the special guest ref for that encounter. I think Roswell's hindquarters are still sore as a result. 

Now T-Dog and his family are stepping into the ring. The Travelsteads will face Roswell and his assistant Mr. Anthony along with relative newcomer to Stride, Keri Gold. How will the family fare against three of the most ruthless members of the Stride roster? 

Student vs. teacher happens once again. Heath Hatton gets a rematch against Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Red Daniels. Daniels is the first graduate of the Stride school and one of Hatton's prized pupils. The two have been at odds before and now the gold is at stake. 

Jay Spade and Tony Flood played a role in Hatton's loss of the championship at Strideiversary in March. This dynamic duo is also causing a stir on the tag team scene. They will battle the champs 'Farmer' Billy Hills and Scott Phoenix.

Ax Allwardt will be joined by a mystery partner (it's not me, despite J. Wellington Beauregard's accusations). The two will clash with J-Wells and his main man, 'The King' Chris Hargas. This has been a very intense and personal situation for more than a year. Will Ax and his partner crown the King and shut up Beauregard?

Another personal situation brewing is between former tag team champions Bo Sawyer and Jason Tiller. Tiller for unknown reasons attacked Warbound at Strideiversary, costing him his shot at the Stride Cup. This grudge match is going to get ugly quick I suspect.

WWE Hall of Famer Bushwacker Luke will join the roster one more time. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. again this FRIDAY night. We'll see you there.

AUDIO: Somebody Call My Momma

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

Mother's Day has come and gone. But I didn't want the day to go by without showing some love for all the moms out there, especially those involved in the wacky world of pro wrestling. So this week, I give a shoutout to those ladies. Thanks for all you do!

VIDEO: Go Figure Friday: Pro Wrestling Crate Unboxing

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

I've been a fan of Pro Wrestling Tees for some time now and have always been interested in their Pro Wrestling Crate offerings. But I'm a cheapskate and have never coughed up the cash to order any. That's where My 1-2-3 Cents supporter (I had saying fan), Sam Banks steps in. He recently sent me a box filled with items from previous crates.

Much to my surprise (I'd forgotten he told me about it), the last thing unveiled in the video is a MicroBrawler I've had my eye on. So check out this week's video and don't forget to subscribe to My 1-2-3 Cents on YouTube.

VIDEO: Go Figure Friday: Kerry Von Erich

Click to watch

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter
This week's Go Figure Friday commemorates the anniversary of Kerry Von Erich winning the NWA World Title from Ric Flair in 1984. Kerry is one of my all-time favorites and in 1990 when he jumped to WWE (F) I was all in.

While there, Hasbro made an action figure of the Texas Tornado. I've had mine for years and decided to 'let him breathe' in this video.
