-Monday’s WWE Raw resulted n a tie with B and C each finishing with with 27 percent of the vote in our weekly post show poll. F finished third with 23 percent of the vote (tribalism is apparently running strong with fans of both companies). I gave the show a C-. I enjoyed the main event, but this was an underwhelming “season premiere” edition.
-Friday’s WWE Smackdown produced a B grade with 26 percent of the vote in our weekly post show poll. F finished second with 20 percent of the vote, and A and C finished tied with 19 percent each. I gave the show a C grade and felt it peaked with the Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar segment and then slowly got worse as the show went on.
