-WWE is releasing its first quarter financial report after the market closes, which is a change from their usual morning release. Vince McMahon and interim CFO Frank A. Riddick will co-host a conference call regarding the financial report. I will run live updates on the highlights of what should be a very interesting call that is scheduled to begin at 4CT/5ET.
-The Dot Net Weekly audio show is being pushed back to Friday this week due to the WWE conference call. Jake Barnett and I will be discussing the call, the WWE financial report, and all the news of the week on Friday. Join us on the ad-free version of the website by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.
-NXT UK streams today on WWE Network at 2CT/3ET. The show is in “best of” mode due to not having any first-run content remaining. Haydn Gleed’s written review should be available later today. His weekly audio review for members will be on hiatus until they start running first-run material again.
-Monday’s WWE Raw received an D grade majority vote with 27 percent from the voters in our weekly post show poll. C finished second with 26 percent of the vote each. Using the empty venue curve, I gave show a D grade in that the show dragged and the match outcomes all felt even more predictable than usual.
