-Friday Night Smackdown on Fox finished with an C as the majority grade with 26 percent of the vote. B and F finished tied for second with 23 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C- grade.
-AEW Dynamite received a B grade from the majority of the voters in our post show poll with 31 percent of the vote. A finished second with 29 percent of the vote. I gave the show a C+ grade and missed the atmosphere that having wrestlers at ringside created the week before.
-The NXT on USA Network show produced an A grade from 42 percent of the voters in our post show poll. B finished second with 26 percent. I gave the show an A- grade and felt it was the best WWE produced show on a closed set thus far.
