-WWE Smackdown takes place tonight in Grand Rapids, Michigan at Van Andel Arena. John Cena is advertised for tonight's show. He claimed he was going to have an MRI on his knee on Monday night, but said he would be in the ring on Tuesday regardless of the results. He's not advertised for the dark main event, so it appears he will take part in the television taping. We are looking for correspondents for tonight's show. If you are attending the taping and want to help, contact me at

-Dot Net Members are listening to my 53-minute audio review of WWE Raw. They are also listening to the 87-minute audio review of WWE Survivor Series that Chris Shore and I recorded on Sunday night.

-The dark main event for tonight's WWE Smackdown taping is advertised as Big Show vs. Sheamus for the World Hvt. Championship.

-WWE will also be taping Wednesday's WWE Main Event television show tonight. The featured match is The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler.

-The majority of Dot Net voters gave the Survivor Series pay-per-view a "B" grade with 32 percent of the vote. It edged the "C" voters who made up for 31 percent of the vote. 17 percent gave the show a "D" grade, and 10 percent gave the show and "A" and 10 percent gave the show an "F" grade. I settled in at a B grade, though I have noted that I think those who are familiar with the NXT talent that debuted were more likely to enjoy the show, whereas those unfamiliar with those wrestlers may have bumped it down a notch or two because they didn't care for the main event finish.

-TNA Knockout Gail Kim and her celebrity chef husband Robert Irvine appeared on Food Network's All Star Family Cook-off on Sunday night. The couple took part in a challenge. Dot Net reader CCL reports: "It was hilarious! Robert Irvine and Gail held hands every chance they could. He lifted her up and kissed her a lot. No other team was that over the top. It was kinda strange."

-Shane "Hurricane" Helms will appear at the Wrestling Universe store in Flushing, N.Y. on January 20 from 11:00 a.m. ET to 1:00 p.m. Tickets for the signing are available at

-There are no pro wrestling matches listed for ESPN Classic tonight.
