-Happy Thanksgiving! Barring breaking news, it will be a quiet day on the site as the staff and I enjoy the holiday with friends and family.
-Dot Net Members are listening to the new Dot Net Weekly audio show with the annual Ring of Honor roster evaluation. Haydn Gleed and I will discuss every wrestler on the roster and include inside notes. Join us on the ad-free version of the site and access and our entire audio history by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.
-Impact Wrestling features the “Eli Drake Gravy Train Turkey Trot”. Yes, someone will end up in the damn turkey suit again this year. Impact airs on Pop TV at 7CT/8ET. John Moore’s review will be available on Friday morning. My Impact Wrestling Hit List will also be available on Friday.
-There are no NXT live events this weekend due to the holiday. The next show will be a television taping on Wednesday in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. If you attend the taping, you are encouraged to send a report to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote for B as the letter grade with 29 percent of the vote. It was a close vote with a C grade finishing just one vote behind. I gave the show a C grade. There were a few key moments and a lot of filler.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live received a majority vote for C as the letter grade with 38 percent of the vote. I gave the show a B grade.
-Survivor Series received a B grade with 59 percent of the vote. I agree. The best match of the show went to Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles with 65 percent. The Shield vs. New Day came in second place with 19 percent. No other match received more than six percent of the vote.
-68 percent of the voters felt that WWE Survivor Series looked better on paper than NXT Takeover: War Games. However, 84 percent of our voters ended up picking NXT Takeover: War Games as the better of the two shows.
