The final 2016 episode of the Top Rope Nation podcast is here. This week, Ryan and Kyle of TopRopePress.com discuss the year as a whole in professional wrestling. As TopRopePress.com prepares to announce their year end awards, we thought it was the perfect time to discuss all of the categories and nominees here on the show. We debate: Male and Female Wrestler of the Year, MVP of the Year, Match of the Year, Event of the Year, Tag Team of the Year, Feud of the Year, and more. Plus, some discussion on this week's excellent edition of WWE SmackDown Live.

Ryan and Kyle of TopRopePress.com went live on YouTube Sunday night for a special live Top Rope Nation podcast and webcast. Join them as they dissect everything that went down at WWE Roadblock: End of the Line.
We break down all the matches on the card, give our star ratings, and dissect where the WWE RAW brand goes following this show. How good was the Sasha Banks/Charlotte match? Did Owens/Reigns succeed at following it up? What was going on with the crowd in Pittsburgh? These are some of the biggest topics covered.
