-NXT UK streams on WWE Network today at 2CT/3ET. Today’s show will be a first-run episode following a pair of “best of” style shows over the holiday weeks.
-Dot Net Members will be listening to the new Dot Net Weekly audio show today with Jake Barnett and I discussing all the news of the week. Join us on the ad-free version of the website by signing up for membership today via the Dot Net Members’ Signup Page.
-Monday’s WWE Raw Legends Night received a D grade majority vote from 31 percent of the voters in our weekly post show poll. F finished second with 30 percent of the vote. I gave the show a D- grade for a poorly booked show. The scary part is that this was actually WWE’s attempt to shine on their first night without Monday Night Football competition since the summer. Will Raw ever get better?
