-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. Well, if all goes according to plan. Jake is based in Texas and has had power issues for the last week, so hopefully things will work out. If they do, Jake and I will discuss all the news of the week and share our predictions for Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber event. 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 received an B grade majority vote from 33 percent of the voters in our weekly post show poll. C finished second with 24 percent of the vote. I gave the show a B- grade, thanks mostly to the third hour being filled by the gauntlet match.
