Three friends talking everything pro wrestling (current and nostalgia from the past). Laughs, beers, and a good time are sure to follow.

Ep. 111: Get Out There And Fill Some Time

August 15th, 2019

A schedule change just minutes before we went on the air this week caused our show format for Episode 111 to get ripped up on the fly, and hence, here we have the 'Free For All' episode. 

While we walked in not knowing what to expect (listen to the show to find out why, we explain), it turned into a pretty hilarious show that we think you'll enjoy. We examine some of WWE's direction heading out of SummerSlam, talk some classic wrestling, and somehow get on the topic of Journey. 

Plus, Kyle still gets to his weekly "I Love This Sport Deep Dive of the Week."

Ep. 105: Wrestling’s Mt. Rushmore of Tag Team Specialists

July 3rd, 2019

We've got some current events and some wrestling nostalgia to talk about on this week's edition of Top Rope Nation. 

We start off with a discussion about AEW's Fyter Fest this past weekend, parlay that into WWE television this week and any changes we noticed as the Heyman/Bischoff era begins, and then we swing completely in the opposite direction to look at wrestling's past.

The final major section of this week's show focuses on wrestling's all time greatest tag team specialists. Who would we put on our Mt. Rushmore? These are performers who held tag team championships with multiple partners while never becoming world champion as a singles star. It's a great deep-dive conversation you are sure to enjoy. 

Plus, as always, Kyle's "I Love This Sport Deep Dive of the Week."
