-NXT is in Citrus Springs, Florida at the Citrus Springs on Friday with the local crew.

-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote of C as the letter grade with 32 percent of the vote. I gave the show a B-.

-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown Live received a majority vote of D as the letter grade with 34 percent of the vote. I also gave the show a D grade. It didn’t sell me on the Super Show-Down event and it felt sports entertainment heavy.
