-Monday’s WWE Raw received a D grade with 34 percent of the vote in our weekly poll. C finished second with 33 percent of the vote. I gave Raw a C grade in that it was a very ordinary show, which isn’t a good thing this close to WrestleMania.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received a majority vote of B as the letter grade with 40 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C+ grade.
