Favorites vs. The Best

It's been a while, but I'm back and hopefully with more consistent blog posts. I will launch something new on the My 1-2-3 Cents Podcast on Monday. Instead of the traditional 'Mt. Rushmore posts that many wrestling fans do, putting a twist on it. 

 Six Cents (a play on words and adding up the numbers 1-2-3) will feature my six favorites on a particular subject in pro wrestling. Since Monday is Labor Day, my six favorite occupational wrestlers will be the first topic. 

 When coming up with a Mt. Rushmore or, in my case, Six Cents, I had to decide whether it would become a list of my favorites or the best. Because, as most wrestling fans know, the best may not be our favorites. For example, Kerry Von Erich is one of my all-time favorite wrestlers and would be a part of Six Cents, but I know he's not one of the six best wrestlers ever. 

Wrestling fandom is subjective anyway, as folks will argue if Ric Flair is truly the G.O.A.T. or, if Shawn Michaels, Kenny Omega, or Will Osprey deserve that distinction. (I put Flair in that spot for the record.)

I am returning quickly to inform you about the upcoming podcast. More announcements will be coming here as well. Thanks for the support over the past 13 years (the brand's birthday is this weekend).
