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. If you have something you would like to share with the rest of us, feel free to provide a link in the comment section for everyone to enjoy.

Off The Top Rope - Ep. 78 - Chi Town Rumble '89

While the crew takes a Holiday break and works out some technical issues, enjoy this episode from the archives... of early December (Mike's note: sorry, holidays and illness are a crummy combination to get editing done).

We talk CM Punk in UFC, the state of WWE leading into TLCS, NXT and the awesomeness that was to come, and more.

After a break, it's a few really good matches and a bunch less so including one of the best main events of all time, Chi Town Rumble '89!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then discuss what we're talking on the next show!
