-Impact Wrestling airs tonight at 7CT/8ET on AXS TV. The show includes Ace Austin vs. Tommy Dreamer. If Dreamer wins he will be added to the Impact World Championship match at Victory Road.

-Monday’s WWE Raw produced a C grade with 29 percent of the vote in our weekly post show poll. B finished second with 23 percent of the vote, and C finished tied for third with 20 percent each. I gave the show a D grade with the saving grace being the strong Damian Priest vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus match for the U.S. Championship.

-Friday’s WWE Smackdown produced a B grade from 44 percent of the voters in our post show poll. A finished second with 22 percent of the vote, and C finished a close second with 21 percent. I gave the show a B grade and felt it was solid SummerSlam fallout edition.
