-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote of C as the letter grade with 28 percent of the vote. I agree with the readers.

-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 52 percent of the vote. I also gave the show a B grade.

-The Impact Wrestling Redemption pay-per-view grade came it as a tie between A and B with each getting 39 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C-plus, but it was certainly an A grade compared to just Impact pay-per-views over the years. The readers voted Austin Aries vs. Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr. for the Impact Wrestling Championship as the best match with 64 precent of the vote.

-Dot Net readers were asked which WWE brand looks better coming out of the Superstar Shakeup. 79 percent went with Smackdown, 10 percent chose Raw, and 11 percent said the brands look even.
