10 Years Later...

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

It's hard to believe, at least for me, but 10 years ago today, the My 1-2-3 Cents brand was officially born. You can take a look at that first blog right here if you're interested. I remember sitting down at my computer on a Friday night and getting started. I had written blogs before but it was the encouragement of my friend and mentor Jeff Rose that pushed me to create a wrestling-themed blog.

So much has changed over the past decade. In December of that year, I added a YouTube channel. The spring of 2011 saw the creation of the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page. Then in December 2014, the podcast was created on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network, and with it came Mondo the Monkey. 

Not only did the brand grow, but so did my fandom. Chad Smart and I ended up attending seven more WrestleManias after going in 2006 and 2008 long before this was even a thought. I got involved in indy wrestling, first serving as a commentator for All-American Pro Wrestling in spring 2011 and eventually stepping into the ring and having my first match. 

It's been an awesome decade. Here's a look back at a few of the bigger moments and memories for me as a fan and a performer. Thank you all for the support. 

Nov. 6, 2010 - refereed for the first time for USCW.

June 10, 2011 - 'managed' Velvet Sky at a Basebrawl event for TNA Wrestling. 

July 30, 2011 - did live commentary for the first time for AAPW.

Jan. 14, 2012 - beat Mike Masters in my first match.

March 12, 2016 - debuted as ring announcer for Stride Pro Wrestling.

May 19, 2018 - beat Roger Matheus inside a steel cage.  

Nov. 10, 2018 - tried out for a ring announcing gig with Impact Wrestling. I didn't get selected... 

Aug. 3, 2019 - joined a tag team match with Heath Hatton against Tony Flood and Jay Spade. We won by disqualification. 

Aug. 29, 2019 - teamed with Hatton to beat Flood and Spade for the Stride Pro Wrestling tag team titles. Yes, that is a real sentence. 

Sept. 7, 2019 - retained the tag team titles against Flood & Spade.

Sept. 14, 2019 - retained the tag team titles in a triple-threat match against Roger Matheus and Chris Hargas (Kings of Destiny) and Bud Gallows and the Masked Assassin.

Oct. 12, 2019 - wrestled in my first battle royal and was eliminated by Ragin' Redneck. Later that night Hatton and I lost the tag team titles to the Kings of Destiny.

Dec. 7, 2019 - teamed with Spade and Hatton to beat the KOD and Savveon Ayres.
