-WWE is in Kallang, Singapore at the Singapore Indoor Stadium today with the following advertised matches: Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Universal Championship, Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship, The IIconics vs. “The Kabuki Warriors” Asuka and Kairi Sane, The Revival vs. Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins for the Raw Tag Titles. For whatever it’s worth, WWE is listing Sasha Banks for this event on their live events page. If you attend this event or any WWE live event, you are encouraged to send a report or the basic results to dotnetjason@gmail.com.

-Dot Net Members will be listening to the new Dot Net Weekly audio show today with Jake Barnett and I discussing all the news of the week and previewing the AEW Fyter Fest and ROH Best in the World events. Join us on the ad-free version of the site and access and our entire ten-year audio history by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.

-Sunday’s WWE Stomping Grounds received a majority vote of C in our post show poll with 30 percent of the vote. B came in second with 28 percent. Jake Barnett and I both gave the show C grades in our members’ exclusive audio review on Sunday night.

-Dot Net voters gave the the WWE Stomping Grounds best match honors to Samoa Joe vs. Ricochet with 35 percent of the vote. I gave the nod to the Tony Nese vs. Drew Gulak vs. Akira Tozawa match that aired on the Kickoff Show.

-Monday’s WWE Raw received a C grade from 34 percent of the voters in our weekly poll. B finished in second place with 26 percent of the vote. There were still 21 percent who gave Raw an F grade. I gave Raw a C+ grade.

-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received an F grade from 38 percent of the voters in our weekly poll. Only 16 percent gave the show a better than average grade. I also gave Smackdown an F grade mostly due to the poor implementation of Vince McMahon’s new edict that matches are not allowed to continue during commercial breaks.
