Podcast Roundup (Aug. 30, 2014): Tony Schiavone, Batista, Paul Heyman, Jim Duggan!

We here in the Cageside community love to talk about the industry we all love so much that we actually have several podcasts that run at various times throughout the week. Some make it to the front page, some get buried in the busy day of thread activity, and some maybe don't get posted at all. In case you forgot, didn't know of, or want to look back on any of them, here I will accumulate the week's shows all in one spot, at the end of every week. I encourage you to bookmark the page as well.

Off The Top Rope - Top Rope Supplemental - Tag Teams

(Mike's note: I want to apologize for how late this episode is in going up. Lately, life's been Brock Lesnar and I've been John Cena.)

We kick this off talking SummerSlam and the fall out on Raw. We follow that by discussing Bully Ray departing from TNA, and if he has a WWE run in him. We then turn to Twitter, where a series of tweets from a listener makes us talk about Titus O'Neill and Adrian Neville. After the break, we talk about our favorite tag teams, why we might see team tiers differently, what makes a great tag team and more!

Next week, we'll be discussing Brock vs. Cena I(and we really mean I), as it's Backlash 2003.
