-NXT is in Daytona Beach, Florida at the Midtown Cultural and Educational Center tonight with the local crew. NXT does not list talent for the Florida spot shows.
-NXT is in Sebring, Florida at Highlands Today Center on Friday with the local crew.
-NXT is in Largo, Florida at Minnreg Hall on Saturday with the local crew.
-The Dot Net readers gave WWE Fastlane a B grade with 46 percent of the vote. Jake Barnett and I agreed that it was a B- show during our audio review on Sunday night. Meanwhile, the readers gave the six-way main event the best match nod with 64 percent of the vote.
-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote of C as the letter grade with 26 percent of the vote. I also gave the show a C grade and I suspect a lot of Detroit fans would give it an even lower grade due to Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey not appearing as advertised.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 34 percent of the vote. I agree with the readers in that the show was better than it has been lately with the focus shifting to WrestleMania.
Birthdays and Notables
-The Iron Sheik (Hossein Khosrow Ali Vaziri) is 76.
-Masayuki Naruse is 45.
