In this episode, we open with talk about a Raw that could have really used Daniel Bryan. The reformation of Evolution, The Shield facing every mid card heel, John Cena's terrible promo and Bray Wyatt trying to save it, and more.

Then, it's TNA talk, particularly about Eric Young winning the TNA World Title and the damage it's done to Magnus, and the comparisons to WrestleMania and Daniel Bryan. We also talk about Davey Richards's horrible haircut.

After a break, it's WrestleMania III! 95 different matches, the Z-Man, one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history in Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage... and well, everything else on the show.

We name our MVP and LVP, and then reveal which show we're discussing next week, No Mercy 2002!

We had so much news this week, we're pushing WrestleMania 3 back to next week!

We touch on the weekend in non-WWE, but really kick things off with the news of the passing of The Ultimate Warrior, and talk about the last weekend of his life, balancing the character and the real man, and more.

Then, it's talk about WrestleMania. Daniel Bryan and his rise to glory, Triple H busting out a Tiger Suplex, Bray Wyatt and his amazing entrance, the Undertaker's streak being broken by Brock Lesnar, and more.

We name our MVP and LVP, and then, in a rare move, take a break before coming back to Raw.

Cesaro being a Paul Heyman guy, John Cena's feud with Wyatt and the next step it takes, Paige's great debut and if it will help the Divas and AJ Lee going forward, The Shield vs. Evolution, and more.

As mentioned earlier, next week, finally, will see our take on WrestleMania III.

In this episode, we start with talk about Raw. Whether Daniel Bryan missing the show was a good thing in his feud with Triple H, John Cena and his match with Luke Harper, along with the awesome visual via Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family, and Brock Lesnar being awesome at bumping for The Undertaker. We also talk about profanity, when it's been practically eliminated from WWE TV, can be almost shocking when used sparingly. Then we talk TNA, and largely focus on Lei'D Tapa. Was writing off her character a week into her turn a waste of the months they used building it? We finish it off with some talk about a recent WWE tryout, and if Roderick Strong or Kevin Steen would have interest in a TNA deal if WWE passes them by.

After the break, it's Sting, Robocop, Brian Pillman being awesome, The Road Warriors being less so, sex toys and more, as it's Capital Combat: The Return of Robocop!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then reveal our next show we'll be talking about, WrestleMania III!

First of all, we have a pair of T-Shirts, including Random Acts of Meng!, now available at Pro Wrestling Tees. If you'd like to support the show, and wear a great looking tee, pick one up.

We kick the episode off, after a little schilling, with the HHH debate promised the week prior. We segue that into Raw talk and his attack on Daniel Bryan, as well as John Cena coming through when it matters in his feud with Bray Wyatt, Mike admitting he was wrong, and, as always, Cesaro adoration.

We then talk TNA ridiculousness, Christy Hemme mannequins, and the future of Bad Influence.

After a break, it's time for SummerSlam 1995. We both get so bored by a match we get basic details confused, we talk about The Undertaker and Kama getting sixteen minutes, and debate if the Shawn Michaels-Razor Ramon ladder match is better than the first, before, clearly, the greatest main event of modern times, Diesel vs. King Mabel.

We name our MVPs and LVPs and reveal which show we're talking about next week, Capital Combat: The Return of Robocop! We then close the show, per Rex's request, with a little hip hop.

Buy a shirt.

In this episode, Mike and Rex, after deciding to shelve the "Great HHH debate" for another week, go into TNA LockDown, horrible booking, turns that make no sense, and this leads to discussion of Jarrett's promotion and if it will be any different, or how it could be. Then, we talk about Occupy Raw, how much we love the Shield and the Rhodes Brothers, the roster feeling a little thin leading into WrestleMania, and Alexander Rusev: Will he ever debut?

After a break, it's WrestleWar '91. A great Luger match you wouldn't expect, racism, lots of talk about the Argentine pro wrestling scene, including Titanes del Ring and 100% Lucha. Mike gets upset about the lack of Badstreet, USA, Rex gets annoyed at Mike's Southern style wrestling love, and we both talk about how king sized Brian Pillman was in War Games.

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then reveal which show we're reviewing next week, WWF SummerSlam 1995!

In this episode, we kick things off with NXT Arrival, Sami Zayn and Cesaro, Emma and Paige, technical issues, and a ladder match without the big high spots. Then, it's on to Raw. #HijackRaw, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt and John Cena, and more. We touch on TNA, including the taped title changes for their One Night Only pay per view in Japan.

After the break, it's the night of a million nut shots as we talk ECW Heat Wave '98! Rob Van Dam, Sabu, Taz, Joey Styles anger at the Dudley Boys, New Jack cutting a promo in the street, and much more!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then reveal which show we're reviewing next week, WrestleWar '91!

In this episode, we celebrate a year of Off The Top Rope with a jam-packed episode.

Mike talks the Mick Foley show in Minneapolis, followed by what it was like to see the Elimination Chamber event live. The Wyatt Family and the Shield, booing Batista, the Elimination Chamber, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Cesaro, and more.

Then, we talk Raw, and Hulk Hogan, Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan, and the contract signing, The Undertaker, and Brock Lesnar.

We briefly touch on TNA, and talk about if Gunner's ascension is lasting.

Then, before the break, we touch on our early issues with WWE Network, and how great it's going to be when the kinks get worked out.

After the break, it's Sting, Cactus Jack, bad finishes, Iron Men and more, as it's Beach Blast 1992! Watch it on the WWE Network here!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and it's revealed which show we're going to review next week, ECW Heatwave 1998 (ignore Mike temporarily calling it Hardcore Heaven. He's a dumb dumb).

This week's episode kicks off with talk of the late Nelson Frazier, perhaps better known as Mabel, or Viscera, or Big Daddy V. We then talk about where the WWE's new cable home may be. After that, it's Raw talk, Daniel Bryan, Wyatt/Shield, John Cena/Cesaro, Emma, NXT Arrival, and Titus O'Neil.

After the break, it's a rather polarizing show in No Way Out 2001. We talk about indulgence in wrestling, when it's acceptable and when it's not, as well as violence against women, run-ins, Triple H vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kurt Angle vs. The Rock, and matches that felt rushed or took forever.

We name our MVP and LVP, and have a first in Off The Top Rope history, before revealing which show we're watching next week, Beach Blast 1992!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then Rex reveals what show we're watching for Episode #50, No Way Out 2001!
