-Monday’s WWE Raw received a majority vote of D as the letter grade with 37 percent of the vote. F came in second with 32 percent of the vote. I side with the majority in that it was an improvement over last week’s F show, but it wasn’t a very good show either.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 48 percent of the vote. I gave the show a B+ grade due largely to the great performance of Daniel Bryan.
