-Monday’s WWE Raw received split vote with a C grade from 31 percent of the voters and a D grade from 31 percent of voters in our weekly poll. Only 18 percent gave the show an above average grade. I gave Raw a D grade for the Superstar Shakeup being a mess to follow.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received a majority vote of C as the letter grade with 31 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C grade.
