The twelfth episode of Off The Top Rope...

...the CageSider's Pro Wrestling Podcast - made for you - by fans like you, has been made available to you as of yesterday (May. 16, 2013), by none-other-than your fellow CageSiders, Mike (vfn) & Rex Ivanovic (the author formerly known as Buckeye Brawler).

Each episode features the guys discussing the latest news and goings-on of note in the pro wrestling world. Plus, they review a classic professional wrestling event!

This week's episode features chatter from Mike & Rex on the mic discussing the week that was and more, in addition to talking current events, they took on CFW Battle of the Belts II...

  • [0:01:00-0:20:00] - After the intros are out of the way, the guys discuss WWE, including Dolph Ziggler's concussion, Raw, John Cena vs. the Shield, and an endless amount of rematches and lack of direction in the midcard.
  • [0:20:00-0:26:30] - It's Impact time, as they tackle crotches in faces, Abyss's cell phone, and the Bound for Glory Series.
  • [0:26:30-0:35:00] - Jay Briscoe did something really stupid last week, and so of course they talk about it, as well as dealing with wrestling's rather checkered past with homosexuality (as portrayed on-screen) and they pose the big question, "Can a popular gay babyface ever exist in a major promotion?"
  • [0:37:00-1:17:00] - CWF Battle of the Belts: This is the epitome of a one-match show, and so they talk about the Cobra Kai and which wrestlers would make great 80s Movie gimmicks. Backstage not having enough material, Olympic Wrestlers with their faces half-painted, and "Easy Lover". Also touched on, which show they're reviewing next week (Money in the Bank 2011).
