-Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber received a B grade with 53 percent of the vote in our weekly poll. C finished in second place with 21 percent of the vote, and A received 18 percent of the vote. Jake Barnett and I both gave it a B grade in our audio review on Sunday night.
-Dot Net readers voted the men’s Elimination Chamber match featuring Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe vs. Randy Orton as the best match with 79 precent of the vote. The women’s tag team elimination match came in a distant second with 13 percent of the vote.
-Monday’s WWE Raw received a F grade with 31 percent of the vote in our weekly poll. D finished in second place with 28 percent of the vote. It’s the second week in a row that F and D were the top two vote getters. I gave Monday’s show a D- for being a chaotic mess that played in front of a dead crowd.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 58 percent of the vote. I agree with the majority of the voters.
