-Saturday’s AEW Fight For The Fallen received a majority vote of B in our post show poll with 45 percent of the vote. C came in second place with 22 percent, while 20 percent gave the show an A grade. Jake Barnett and I both gave the show a C grade in our members’ exclusive audio review.
-Dot Net voters gave the AEW Fight For The Fallen best match honors to Kenny Omega vs. Cima with 38 percent of the vote. Cody and Dustin Rhodes vs. The Young Bucks came in second place with 23 percent. I agree with the voters.
-Dot Net voters tied in the voting for the letter grade of the Evolve 10th Anniversary show with 39 percent voting for A or B. I gave the show a B.
-Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules received a majority vote of B in our post show poll with 50 percent of the vote. B finished second with 32 percent of the vote. Jake Barnett and I gave the show a B grade in our members’ exclusive audio review.
Dot Net voters gave WWE Extreme Rules best match honors to Aleister Black vs. Cesaro with 23 percent of the vote. Ricochet vs. AJ Styles for the U.S. Championship second with 21 percent. I gave the nod to Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs. Big E and Xavier Woods vs. Heavy Machinery for the Smackdown Tag Titles.
-Monday’s WWE Raw received an C grade from 31 percent of the voters in our weekly poll. B finished in second place with 25 percent of the vote, while D finished a close third with 22 percent. I gave Raw a D+ grade, as I just can’t get past the insanity that is the implementation of Vince McMahon’s edict that matches can’t continue during commercial breaks.
-Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown received a D grade from 30 percent of the voters in our weekly poll. C finished second with 27 percent, and B finished third with 25 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C- grade for a show that featured too many brief and forgettable matches for my liking.
