-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote of C as the letter grade with 36 percent of the vote. I also gave the show a C.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown 1000 received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 30 percent of the vote. C came just one vote behind. I gave the show a B+ in that they had some fun returning legends who delivered good performances, plus it was a newsworthy show thanks to the tag title change.
