-FS1 will air “A Future WWE: The FCW Story” tonight at 9CT/10ET.

-WWE Backstage airs tonight at 11CT/12ET on FS1.

-Impact Wrestling airs tonight on AXS TV at 7CT/8ET. Tonight’s episode includes the semifinals of the No. 1 contender tournament. John Moore’s review will be available immediately following the show. My Dot Net Members’ exclusive audio review and the Impact Wrestling Hit List will be available on Wednesday.

-The AEW Dark online show streams tonight on the AEW YouTube page at 6CT/7ET. Dot Net contributor Briar Starr’s review will be available on Wednesday morning.

-Friday Night Smackdown on Fox finished with B as the majority grade with 41 percent of the vote. A finished second with 28 percent of the vote. I gave the show a B+ grade (using the empty venue curve for all shows). Everything served a purpose and nothing felt like filler.

-The NXT on USA Network show scored a B grade from the majority of the voters in our post show poll with 41 percent of the vote. A finished second with 30 percent of the vote. I gave the show an B- grade. I’m not sure how you give an A to a show that concluded with an “apparent no-contest” cheap finish, but to each their own.

-AEW Dynamite produced an B grade from 35 percent of the voters in our post show poll. A finished second with 37 percent. I gave the show a D+ grade for some rough in-ring work and because it just didn’t move me as a go-home show for the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view.
