-Monday’s WWE Raw received an B grade majority vote with 24 percent from the voters in our weekly post show poll. C and F finished tied for second with 21 percent of the vote each. I gave show a B- grade for the excellent mic work, though I was disappointed that they featured two classic matches on the WrestleMania go-home show. Believe me, I get it most weeks these days, but I felt that they could have done more to spotlight the WrestleMania matches.
-There were no NXT live events scheduled for this weekend due to WrestleMania, so we have no postponements to list this week.
