-WWE is replaying Tuesday's Super Smackdown television show in the usual 7:00 p.m. CT slot tonight. The show is set to record on DVRs tonight if you have it set to the weekly recording option. I will bump the reports that Chris Shore and Jake Barnett filed on Tuesday to the top of the page tonight so that those of you who are watching the show can follow along with their thoughts as you normally would.
-Dot Net Members are listening to the two-hour Dot Net Weekly audio show that special guest Brian Fritz of BetweenTheRopes.com and I recorded on Thursday. Big thanks to Brian for filling in this week for Chris Shore, who hasn't been feeling well.

-Our latest poll results indicate that Dot Net voters do not expect WWE to drift back into Attitude Era-like content now that Linda McMahon has lost her U.S. Senate bid. 47 percent of the voters predict that the content will be slightly edgier, but more in between PG and the Attitude Era. 42 percent don't expect anything to change. Only 11 percent of the voters predict a shift back to the Attitude Era. I agree with those who expect it to be slightly edgier, particularly once WrestleMania season arrives. I don't think WWE wants to risk upsetting certain advertisers who would not want to be associated with an Attitude Era-like product.
-We are looking for correspondents for all of the WWE and TNA weekend events. If you are going to any of the events listed below and want to help, send a report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
