Title: WWE Prediction Contest

WWE PREDICTION CONTEST

This was successful in CRW, so with ESPN Sports taking off, it's time for a return.

Many of us enjoy watching wrestling, and this contest is designed to add a fun, competitive element to it. Those wishing to participate can jump in at any time by making their predictions in the latest thread.

I'll likely adapt a "seasonal" format, where we run from the post-Mania PPV (currently Extreme Rules) to Wrestlemania each year, with possible prizes (or at least bragging rights) for the individual with the highest score each season.

THE RULES

1.I will post a thread for each PPV. It will list the announced matches, along with any bonus questions. All you have to do is indicate clearly (such as via bolding, underlining or colour) who you think will win each match.
Alternatively, you can predict a non-finish for any contest by writing "NO CONTEST" or "DRAW" rather than marking either competitor.

2.You may post your predictions at any time after I've posted the thread, and are free to amend your post as more matches are added, or if something happens to change your mind about one of your given predictions.

3.The contest will close when the pre-show starts. Entries/amendments made after this time may result in your entry being disqualified for that PPV.

4.Each card will feature bonus questions, which could be about specifics in a match, or the PPV overall. These will count towards overall scores, and act as one of the tie-breakers.

5.The moderator's (GM Jon) decisions are final.

6.Have fun!

Extras
1.Any matches added DURING a PPV will obviously not be counted towards results, as we couldn't predict them.
2.Cards will be accurate to WWE.com listings. Any dirtsheet rumoured matches will NOT be added.

THE SCORING

Each match is worth a number of points (breakdown usually stated at the bottom of each card). Generally, it works as follows:

Main Events (e.g. WWE WHC Title matches & anything booked as a main draw): 3 points each
All other titles & high profile non-ME contests: 2 points each
Anything else & bonus questions: 1 point each


HALL OF CHAMPIONS:

SEASON 1: Payback 2014 - Wrestlemania 31
WINNER: Powers - 83 (66 + 17) (RR)
RUNNER UP: Gooch - 78 (64 + 14)

SEASON 2: Extreme Rules 2015 - Wrestlemania 32
WINNER: Powers - 149 (126 + 23) (RR)
RUNNER UP: Gooch - 148 (120* + 28 ) (RR)

SEASON 3: Payback 2016 - Wrestlemania 33
WINNER: Powers - 221 (176** + 45) (MITB, RR)
RUNNER UP: Gooch - 208 (158 + 50) (MITB)

SEASON 4: Payback 2017 - Wrestlemania 34
WINNER: Powers - 246 (201 + 45) (MMITB, WMITB, MRR, WRR)
RUNNER UP: Cory - 218 (184 + 36) (MMITB)

Updated as of Summerslam... It's all change at the top as Pancho misses out on this round, while similarities in opinions (or predictable WWE booking?) means there's no early gaps forming.

We'll be back with Night of Champions in September.

Updated from NoC.

No change at the top, as Powers not only keeps first place, but doubles his lead out to 2 points. Behind him Franchise takes second outright, while Gooch just about holds on to third place (via match points over Digger).

In other notable changes, Holly continues to rise up the rankings, going from last after our first event (Battleground), to mid-table.

Our next outing is Hell In A Cell in October. Keep your eyes peeled for the game thread.

Updated through HIAC.

Powers keeps his 2 point lead, but now holds it over Digger, who had the joint-best night at HIAC. His fellow night-winner, TJ, also sees himself move up the standings to round out the top three.

Our previous second place holder Franchise drops to joint fourth with a particularly bad set of predictions, while the rest of the order remains relatively unchanged.

Next up is Survivor Series towards the end of November. See you in around a month for that.

Post by: GM Corbin on December 15, 2014, 06:31:22 PM
Updated for TLC(+S).

Powers' lead shoots out thanks to a very profitable night, including being the only one to correctly predict one of the 3-pointer Main Events. However, he shouldn't feel too comfortable in his lead, as the Royal Rumble is bound to throw up a few opportunities for some unique predictions and for things to completely change.

At the other end of the scale, TJ drops places due to a very poor night in the only other major move.

We'll be back in 2015 for the Royal Rumble, as we start the annual trip down the Road To Wrestlemania.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on January 25, 2015, 11:21:58 PM
And that's the Rumble done (with a little fan hostility).

As Wrestlemania looms nearer, it looks ever more likely that Powers will take the first championship victory. His lead is maintained at 8 points thanks to once again being a top-scorer.

We have two movers, first Franchise reclaims the second place he lost at Hell In A Cell through scoring highest at the PPV, while Holly jumps over TJ, who missed the PPV (probably too busy with his rehab to earn himself the HIFL contract).

Next up is "Fast Lane", WWE's replacement for Elimination Chamber. I've no idea what it's about, or what sort of matches to expect.... So join us in February for a venture into the unknown!
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on February 22, 2015, 11:12:50 PM
While there's no change at the top (Powers' well-built lead holding out to keep him in first), Fastlane has lead to many changes up and down the standings.

Most notably Gooch jumps over both Franchise and Digger, claiming the second spot while taking a good bite out of Powers' safety buffer. Meanwhile Holly drops down with an almost 100% wrong night (which would have been a first), her place now occupied by TJ, who also had a fairly profitable night.

There's only one event left, and it's the big season finale in Wrestlemania. Given that the biggest event of the year tends to involve several Main Events, it's far from a certainty when I ask: Who will win our first year's competition? (Ok, it will have been 9 months, but we're counting it as Season 1)...

Be back here in 5 weeks to find out!

And there we have it... Season one ends in a bang with Wrestlemania..

Despite a poor performance, the lead is just too much to overcome, leaving GM POWERS as our first winner.

Behind him, DIGGER scores highly to tie up GOOGH for second place, making both men co-runner-up.

A big thank you to everyone who participated thus-far. The full table at the top shall remain in place until Extreme Rules, when SEASON TWO will begin... If I may be so bold, I predict that with a full compliment of PPV's next years winner may break the 100 point barrier.

SHOCK TWIST!!!

In entering this past seasons scores into a database I discovered a mathematical error..

Somewhere along the line I did some adding up wrong to this point... Digger has 13 bonus points not 14...

This means the top 3 is:

WINNER: POWERS
RUNNER UP: GOOCH
THIRD: DIGGER

One mathematical error in the whole game... I'm pretty impressed at that.

(For those interested: I'm going to keep a track of running scores via the database both for each season and "career" total)

SEASON TWO BEGINS!!!

We start our second year the same way as the first... With a lot of scores that are the same. This leaves FIVE people tied on the same score for first, while "last" place is only three points back.

Payback is PPV #2 of the season, where Rusev and John Cena will meet in an I Quit match for the United States Championship (as announced during Extreme Rules). See you then!
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on May 18, 2015, 03:57:17 PM
UPDATED AS OF PAYBACK 2015

Franchise wins the night, and with that shoots himself up the table into fifth place. Around him the table starts to stretch, with Payback creating much more variety in scoring compared to our opener at Extreme Rules.

At the top we now have two tied for the lead... Last season's winner Powers and runner up Gooch... Who once again are showing they're in-tune with the WWE's thought processes (or really lucky with their guessing). Can anyone break up their stranglehold?


We're back again in TWO WEEKS for a BONUS ROUND! WWE has chosen reinstate Elimination Chamber as a Network-Exclusive PPV, which means I'm already planning my Chamber system in order to create even more chaos in the table...
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest

Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on June 01, 2015, 02:07:34 PM
For the first time in what seems like an age, Powers is not top of the WWE Prediction Contest Leaderboard!

While he may have scored joint-highest in match points, his inability to pick up any bonus points puts him just one point behind Gooch at the top of the table.

Talon takes the honours on the night by way of match points, with his score of 7 points matched by  Gooch and Tritch (albeit with more bonus points). At the other end of things, Franchise follows up his previous round win with the lowest score this time out.

While things are starting to string out a little, there's still only a single "secondary title" score (2 points) between the top three places.

We are back again in just two weeks for our third PPV in quick succession... And it's the first opportunity to pick up an "Extra" tiebreaker. We shall see you again for Money In The Bank very soon!

Post by: GM Corbin on June 15, 2015, 08:13:05 PM
Updated as of Money In The Bank 2015.

Our second low-scoring event in a row, with majority of entrants failing to score even half of the maximum. In spite of this, it was yet another fairly close-run affair when it comes to the actual results. It's Jon that profits most, his clear 2-point victory being enough to move him up into the top-three, while Holly slides down the table through some against-the-grain choices.

The next event is Battleground, which will be the 1 year anniversary of the Corbin WWE Prediction Contest's run on the ESPN Sports Sims boards. We hope to see you then, and wish you luck in achieving some more high-scoring nights in the events to come.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on July 20, 2015, 06:10:29 PM
WWE Battleground sees status quo return to the WWEPC, as Powers regains the top position on the leaderboard.

It's Talon and Pancho that profit most, both securing 7-point hauls, but Powers 6-point second place is enough to shoot him back to the top as Gooch is only able to score 3, dropping down to the third place position.

We return at the end of August with SUMMERSLAM, an event that seems to regularly feature multiple main-event level contests, so a definite chance to score big!

Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on August 24, 2015, 09:17:48 AM
Summerslam lived up to the prediction contest hype, with our highest scores of the season thus-far.

JON was by far our winner on the night, his 19 points including a perfect 5 on the bonuses. His nearest challenger was GOOCH, 4 points behind with a score of 15, while the lowest scorer was FRANCHISE, who managed "only" 10 points. Current series leader POWERS scored 11, putting him in the lower half of the results.

Adding those scores to our leaderboard we see a big change at the top. JON's big score means he goes from 2 points behind, to having a 4 point lead. GOOCH also leapfrogs POWERS, putting our reigning champion back in 3rd and 6 points off the pace.
The only other change to proceedings is DIGGER and FRANCHISE swapping places, now in 7th and 8th respectively.

September brings NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS, where all titles are on the line, which should once again bring a lot of points up for grabs in the race to be crowned Season 2 Prediction Contest Champion.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on September 21, 2015, 11:03:01 AM
Night Of Champions is in the books.

DIGGER and GOOCH top scored, with a whopping 15 points each (although DIGGER took top spot with greater match points). This was double that of our lowest scorers, TRITCH and PANCHO, who each got 7.
(Fun fact: after half of last night's matches had been completed, PANCHO was still yet to score a single point.)
We also had two S2 debuts, with METRO and TJ registering their first entries this year, and doing as well as each other with 8 points apiece.

As for the overall scores: JON drops six points to GOOCH, with last-seasons runner-up now top by 2, while POWERS' deficit is cut to three as he looks to retain his crown.
Elsewhere the poor nights from TRITCH and PANCHO see them drop down the board (from 6th-to-8th and 5th-to-6th respectively), with DIGGER taking over 5th, while HOLLY rises to 7th.


Next month is HELL IN A CELL, where we already know that The Beast Incarnate, BRRROCK LEESSSNARRR, with take on THE UNDERTAKER inside the demonic structure.
(NB: I might be away the night of the PPV. Should this be the case, the contest will still run with me updating the results on the Monday as and when I catch up.)
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on October 27, 2015, 05:19:39 PM
Updates as of HIAC.

WE HAVE OUR FIRST 100%! It goes to GOOCH, as he secured a maximum 18 for match points.
However, it wasn't a perfect night, as the surprise return of Alberto Del Rio and lack of Dudley table use caught everyone off-guard.
Everyone else scored around the same, with the lowest scorers getting a still impressive 14 points.

On the overall table, GOOCH's lead extends to 5 points, while JON stays 1 point ahead of POWERS in second and third respectively. DIGGER leapfrogs TALON on match points, while HOLLY and FRANCHISE benefit from the absences of TRITCH and PANCHO in this month's contest.
And interestingly, for what I believe is the first time in a while, we have no ties at all in the current overall scoring.


Next up is the Thanksgiving tradition that is SURVIVOR SERIES. This will mark the 25th anniversary of The Undertaker's debut, and should no doubt provide plenty of high-scoring opportunities in the event's namesake elimination matches.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on November 23, 2015, 09:45:01 PM
UPDATED AS OF SURVIVOR SERIES.

GOOCH & POWERS share the night's spoils, ending up tied on 15 points. At the other end of the scale, FRANCHISE managed a meager 4.. Not helped by him not filling in the entire set of predictions.

As for the overall scores, GOOCH breaks the 100 point barrier, now sitting with a total of 104 at the top of our table. His lead is extended to 6 (a one-point increase), now over a joint second JON and POWERS.
Nobody else changed places, although some gaps between scores have changed. The biggest of note being the gap between our top three and the next competitor, which is currently at 10 points!

Can anyone make up the deficit? Will Gooch manage to hold on to his lead? or can Powers come back to retain his crown? Only time will tell.

By my reckoning we have four PPVs left this Season. Next up is the final one of 2015: TLC. Described as the "WWE's Demolition Derby", will it do the same for our scores? I'll see you next month to find out!
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on December 14, 2015, 09:12:59 PM
UPDATED FOR TLC.

FRANCHISE makes the biggest turnaround of the season thus-far, going from a 4 point last place last time out to securing a 100% MATCH POINTS SCORE on the way to a 14 point top-scoring night.

Most of our other competitors came close, only falling one match off also securing maxes.


Overall, there's only two changes to note. Firstly, TALON leapfrogs DIGGER for 4th place thanks to a single point lead. The bigger interest, however, is likely to be that POWERS not only takes 2nd place outright (relegating former-tie JON into third), but also managed to take a point off GOOCH, decreasing the latter's lead to only 5 points.


We now take a 6 week break over Christmas and into the New Year... But once we get to 2016 things will start to heat up. For on JANUARY 24th The Road To Wrestlemania begins.... WITH THE ROYAL RUMBLE!

30 men, 1 prize... And a whole lot of prediction opportunity.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on January 26, 2016, 11:49:44 AM
UPDATED AS OF ROYAL RUMBLE.

Reigning champion POWERS is the King of the Rumble, narrowly edging out TJ (who scored 11 points, all matches no bonus).
There were also three Prediction Contest debuts, with T-BONE the most successful, scoring two more than BLACK DEATH and REBEL. Welcome to all three.

As for the overall table... GOOCH's lead is cut to just three points by POWERS, while the gap to third place (JON) is extended to seven. It's looking increasingly likely that we'll see the same pair of names in the top two, but the question is, which way around?
The only actual move on the table was DIGGER jumping TALON, reversing last month's change.


Fastlane in February is our final stop before Wrestlemania... We'll see you then for our penultimate event of Season Two.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on February 23, 2016, 06:05:52 PM
UPDATED FOR FASTLANE.

Or should I say PredictablePre-WrestlemaniaPPV 2016. In a Season high we had FIVE people one score short of a match-maximum, two of which were a further bonus away from the first full maximums.

It means, of course, that there's no real change in the standings. GOOCH remains three points ahead of POWERS at the top, setting up a tense finish between last years 1st & 2nd finishers. Which way around will they fall this year?
(There is an outside chance of JON taking the crown, but at 9 points behind it'd take some bold predictions and a bit of luck for him to win... That or a no-show by the top two)


Our final PPV of the season is, as always, WRESTLEMANIA.... Some matches are already known (OMG SHANE-O-MAC RETURN!)... While others are yet to be announced.. But as always, join us again PPV week to make your picks.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on April 04, 2016, 06:49:52 PM
Wrestlemania 32 is in the books!

Our top six were the only ones to participate in the final round. TALON took the night, but scored only half the available match points. DIGGER was our lowest scorer, picking up only 5 points across the night.


As for the overall...


POWERS RETAINS THE CORBIN'S WWE PREDICTION CONTEST CROWN!


POWERS managed to out-score GOOCH by 4 points, jumping over him at the top of the table to retain his title by just ONE SINGLE POINT.

JON takes third, followed by TALON, DIGGER & HOLLY.

The full final table can be seen in the first post.


I'd like to thank everybody who has taken part over the past year. Now I'll take stock and see how things stand.

My question for you all: Would you like me to continue with Season 3?

If yes, please fill out the following survey:

1 - Should Network Specials (e.g. "Beast Of The East") be added to the contest if cards are pre-announced?
2 - Should NXT Takeover specials be added to the contest?
3 - Any changes you'd like to the way the contest is run?

- I think the Network special shows should count, yes.

2 - Should NXT Takeover specials be added to the contest?
- No, I don't think these should count, as you would have to be an NXT follower to play, where the network specials are still easy to pick if you watch regular WWE programming.

3 - Any changes you'd like to the way the contest is run?

Great job with this Leon. It really is fun to play and I wish more our our members would get on board and play through the entire season.

- I think they should, yes.

2 - Should NXT Takeover specials be added to the contest?
- I think they should, yes. I saw Talon's point, but I don't think you have to really pay too much attention to NXT to be able to throw up predictions. They do I think 4 takeovers a year. I think it would be fun to have those in our predictions.   

3 - Any changes you'd like to the way the contest is run?
I think Powers and Gooch should start out with negative 10 points. That is all though.  :P

To answer your questions:



My question for you all: Would you like me to continue with Season 3?

YES

1 - Should Network Specials (e.g. "Beast Of The East") be added to the contest if cards are pre-announced?

So long as there are 4+ announced matches, yes.


2 - Should NXT Takeover specials be added to the contest?

I'd say no. This is the WWE Prediction Contest, not the NXT Prediction Contest. But I won't pitch a fit if you decide to include it.


3 - Any changes you'd like to the way the contest is run?

Nah bro, sometimes simple is fun. You do a great job with this.

Yex, yes, and more bonuses.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on April 17, 2016, 09:36:46 PM
So, in an off-season update the responses to my questions:

1 - Network Specials
It's a unanimous YES to Network Specials being added to the prediction contest. So long as we have enough matches announced to make it worthwhile you'll see Network Special events pop up for your predicting (should be ok though - BITE had 7, MSG had 6).

In an addition to this, if WWE does the King of the Ring special there will not only be a prediction contest for it, but I'll add it as a tie-breaker on par with Rumble & MITB for predicting the overall winner.
(NOTE: in the case of the KOTR working like last year only the Network Special portion will count as predicable, to avoid easy points through potential pre-taped SD matches).

In a further addition to this, I'm going to be keeping a close eye on details about the WWE CRUISERWEIGHT SERIES format, as it might work out as a nice bonus round to the competition. Obviously if it's pre-taped it won't be included, but I hope there's at least some aspects of it done as live Network Specials.

2 - NXT Takeovers
Currently they're pretty split, with 3 "Yes" and 2 "no".

Jon made a very good case to counter Talon's point about "non-followers", while I'd like to briefly address Power's by saying that NXT is a WWE product/brand, so technically it'd fit under this banner.

A thought I had is dropping the points scale so all title matches at NXT Takeovers are worth 2 points, while everything else is worth 1. This makes it less harmful to the overall standings, but gives enough that there's still difference in the match values at NXT events.

I'll leave this one open to discussion for the moment, as I'd like to know more opinions before I commit either way. For the record, I lean adding them (thus the question existing to gauge opinions) as they're effectively Network Specials, just focused on the Development brand.

3 - Any Other Stuff
Glad everyone likes things the way they are overall.

I do somewhat agree with Bone's "more bonuses", especially when I have occasionally held back to avoid repetition when they could have been suitable - For example, when there's more than one multi-man or tag team match, I tend to only give one "who's on the losing end/who scores the winning fall".
We might see a few more of these, as well as some new ones as I've been evaluating my bonus topics in order to improve going forwards. Definitely want to make it so there's plenty of ways to score points during the season.

SEASON 3 HAS BEGUN!

Only a 4 point spread across the Payback predictions, with GOOCH & BLACK DEATH sharing the spoils at the top.

The only thing "Of note" from the night actually came from the show itself, with the no-contest through injury in the tag match having an impact on the overall results... As GOOCH and BD had actually picked different ways. We wish Enzo a speedy recovery.

We return fairly quickly with Extreme Rules later this month, headlined Styles vs Reigns II confirmed from the end of the PPV.

I'm just saying that, if it's changed, technically, Gotch defeated Enzo to win.

Also, did we get points if we had Steph or Shane since they both were given control of RAW.

Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on May 04, 2016, 10:23:00 AM
I generally run on the live results, thus the tag match result being a no-contest. It's part of it being a PPV prediction contest that I stand by the on-the-night results rather than changing when things get switched around on Raw the next night.

Side note - I haven't seen Raw, but from what I can tell the Vaudevillains have been given the Number 1 Contenders spot "by default" as one of their opponents is injured, thus unable to finish the match.


As for the Steph & Shane result - Currently, nobody has anything from it.. However, I'd considered giving Pancho the point for it, as the technical outcome was NEITHER being given full control of Raw.

Actually, consider that active... PANCHO has +1 point for his "NEITHER" outcome of the Raw decision.

Depends on how you view a "Neither" vote. It could be a prediction for "Someone else" (e.g if Vince had taken power, or brought in a new GM) or mean "neither is given control" (like the situation we have now).

My intention was for it to mean any outcome that covered neither person being chosen, which is how I've applied it.

This does not say "FULL CONTROL" it says "control"  ...Shane has control of raw as of the PPV.  Steph has control of raw as of the PPV... You can not argue that neither of them got control of raw. 

I continue to protest this decision.

I continue to protest this decision.

Again, see this line:

My intention was for it to mean any outcome that covered neither person being chosen

Thus, your options as provided were:

Vince gives STEPHANIE/THE AUTHORITY the control of Raw, Shane no longer in power
Vince gives SHANE the control of Raw, Stephanie/The Authority no longer in power
Vince picks NEITHER of them - Which is what he did. He said "I'm not going to choose, you're going to keep fighting and arguing, so you BOTH control of Raw".



However, as I'm getting fed up of the arguing, I'm going to reset the scores to ignore that prediction completely and effectively remove it from the contest.

There's a lot of debate over a single point, and a lot about interpretation & semantics. From now on expect Prediction Contest posts to be three times longer as I attempt to make every available option 100% unarguably clear.

Also, I expect this to mean that we can argue against judge rulings we disagree with in the sim games and expect our cases to be considered, even if they involve people taking things out of how they're intended to be seen and twisting them to their own benefit  :P

UPDATED TO EXTREME RULES

A joint win for TALON and DIGGER at what turned out to be a fairly predictable night. Pretty much the entire show went as I'd have guessed with little to no surprises in the actual match results.

Overall GOOCH now has a solo lead over the competition, aided by BLACK DEATH not showing.
DIGGER & TALON sit in second and third above our reigning champ POWERS.
Meanwhile, FRANCHISE's return sees him slot in at the bottom of the table after the lowest score thus-far in S3.


Our next main-roster event will be MONEY IN THE BANK in June, with the first chance for a tiebreak bonus to be picked up in the signature match.


HOWEVER: The NXT TAKEOVER currently has 4 matches announced (I'd prefer 5 so hope there's another in the works)... If there's interest, I'll throw up a predictions thread for that next week.

Post by: GM Corbin on June 21, 2016, 08:00:17 PM
UPDATED TO MONEY IN THE BANK

With 12 participants, MITB was our most active round this season! Impressively, half of those players managed to correctly predict the winner of the show's signature match, earning themselves the first of our bonus tie-breakers (could they be crucial come Wrestlemania?).

GOOCH and POWERS top-scored on the night, both earning double the points of our lowest scorer, TALON.

In terms of the overall, it's GOOCH just ahead of POWERS, with DIGGER in third (I'm getting a sense of deja-vu here). However, the overall gap at the top extends, with first place going from 1 to 4 points clear, a safety cushion now greater than a correct Main Event prediction.

Further down, TALON and TJ are just ahead of HOLLY via match points, while our pair of newcomers (BANKS and T-BONE) score well on their debuts to sit just above PANCHO and BD (who both missed the event).


We return at the end of July with BATTLEGROUND, traditionally a "transitional" PPV as WWE builds the angles into Summerslam... but that doesn't always mean "predictable"....

I'm confused, maybe it's just the wording (I honestly don't remember the scores pre-MITB). How did Gooch's lead "extend" when we had the same MITB scores (15+3=18)?

Prior to MITB it was Gooch, Digger (+1), Talon (+2), You (+4) at the top of the table.

With Digger scoring 5 fewer points overall, and Talon 9 fewer, both dropped down the standings.

So while the gap between Gooch & yourself remains the same, the difference between first and second place has increased. Thus my pointing out his first place becoming more secure.

UPDATED FOR BATTLEGROUND

POWERS continues his upward trend in form, taking the overall win on the night. HOLLY comes in second, with series leader GOOCH third. TALON comes in a distant last, scoring half the points of our winner.

As for the overall table... GOOCH still sits on top, but sees his lead halved by POWERS, which will put the pressure on going into our next round.
HOLLY takes the biggest move, jumping up from 6th to 4th.



We shall return August 20/21 with a DOUBLE HEADER! Not only will SUMMERSLAM get a prediction thread, but I'll also be posting one for NXT TAKEOVER: BACK TO BROOKLYN the night before! This means extra points up for grabs for all involved.

ALSO - Post Summerslam the Brand Split/Extension goes into full effect, including split PPVs for Raw & Smackdown. This means more events, more points to pick up, and greater opportunity for the standings to have a big shakeup.

Post by: GM Corbin on September 01, 2016, 06:11:24 PM
UPDATED TO SUMMERSLAM WEEKEND

Firstly, welcome to SANDS, our 13th participant this season!

The results of the weekend can be summarised thusly:
- Those that entered both events moved up
- Those that entered only one moved down (most notably HOLLY, falling from 4th to 7th, and blaming me for not reminding her about the NXT event)

The SUMMERSLAM thread itself saw a Brock Lesnar-esque demolition from the Prediction Contest Beast, POWERS. His margin of victory is the biggest we've had since I started running the contest, scoring a huge 7 points more than second placed JON.

As for the overall standings.. Well, it should come as no surprise that POWERS sits top of the table once again. He moves from two points behind GOOCH to now sit 9 points clear at the top. That's the equivalent of three main-event predictions.

DIGGER stays in third, with TALON & JON sharing 4th place.


All is not lost, however... September brings with it the start of BRAND EXCLUSIVE PPVs.

This means double the number of prediction threads and more points on offer most months. POWER's "Three-peat" is far from guaranteed.

Our next two events will be BACKLASH and CLASH OF CHAMPIONS.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on September 17, 2016, 09:28:34 AM
Updated to BACKLASH

TALON takes the victory, scoring 13 points to just edge out DIGGER with 12. A fairly bunched field saw our lowest scorers (HOLLY & REBEL) only slightly behind on 9 points.

On the overall table there is little change, the only major movement coming as HOLLY hops back over TJ for 6th place, aided by the latter not participating in this PPV.
However, it should not go unmentioned that POWERS has become the first player to break the 100 point mark this season.. And in the process sneaked another point further ahead, his lead over second-placed GOOCH now a full 10 points.


It's a short turnaround to the RAW-exclusive PPV CLASH OF CHAMPIONS at the end of September (I won't go into my opinions on WWE missing an opportunity with that PPV name).... While Smackdown LIVE confirmed that their next event is NO MERCY at the start of October. I'll see you all again for them.
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest
Post by: GM Corbin on September 29, 2016, 06:01:06 PM
UPDATED TO CLASH OF CHAMPIONS.

A fairly even night, with the scores once again bunched up. It seems Brand Split PPVs are Predictable PPVs for the most part.

POWERS increases his lead by another point, slipping out to be now 11 points ahead. Everyone else that participated stays where they are, except with more points now (exception made for REBEL, who is climbing up past people who have missed the few events since he joined).

Our next PPV is NO MERCY, roughly two weeks from now. Will it continue the trend of easily-guessed results? Join us in October to find out!

UPDATED TO NO MERCY.

In a shock move... POWERS came LAST on the night! (Or was it a ploy, scoring the exact amount to take his match points to 100?)

However, his nearest rival GOOCH was unable to capitalise, only scoring one more point on the night, meaning the gap at the top still sits in double figures (currently 10 points).

Congratulations to JON on his victory, which also sees him overtake TALON on the overall table by way of match points, the only movement as a result of the PPV.

Next comes HELL IN A CELL at the end of October. As usual, thread will go up in the days following the go-home show.

Two notes:

1 - Going to skip the TakeOver for ease.

2 - Royal Rumble will act as a tester for if this continues long-term, or if we get to Wretlemania to determine which of the active players gets the crown. While I enjoy running the game, I'm not sure if I'll continue if only two or three people are playing.

(Rumble Thread imminent... Now going to write it up)
Title: Re: Corbin's WWE Prediction Contest

We have RUMBLE'd!

POWERS wins... Again... JON comes a close second. HOLLY joins the pair in predicting the Rumble winner, and is the only other person in double figures.

And we have a newcomer! Welcome CORY!


On the overall table PANCHO is the only mover, breaking into the top 10.
POWERS lead was knocked down to four by the Survivor Series weekend, but is now back out to a whopping FOURTEEN points. Given average scoring over recent times he could take a show off and still have a lead.
The battle for second is still on though, with GOOCH and DIGGER two points apart.

ELIMINATION CHAMBER will feature high points scoring opportunities in the titular match (see thread I'll post in a moment).

Post by: GM Corbin on March 01, 2017, 11:57:21 AM
BACKLASH has been added to the scores.

Updated to TAKEOVER ORLANDO and WRESTLEMANIA.


The double-header season finale saw HOLLY scoop what I believe is the only full-100% (Match AND Bonuses) of the season at NXT: Orlando. This was followed by GOOCH taking the honours at the stupidly-long season finale show.


But what does it mean for the overall?




Well, once again...
 
POWERS WIN THE CORBIN WWE PREDICTION CONTEST


12 months ago it went down to the wire and was decided by a single point... But Season 3 was a blowout. The final lead was 13 points over Runner-Up GOOCH, with third place JON a further 20(!) points back.

A spread of 9 points from top to bottom means there's already some catching up to be done by people, but with plenty of time to do it there's no need to panic just yet for last-placed CORY.

With only 24 hours to go I'll leave it up to people on here as I don't want to feel I'm being unfair by having such a short window so not everyone gets to play.

If there's enough interest declared by midnight GMT (approx 7.5 hrs from now) I'll post a thread then and give people tomorrow to predict the outcomes.

BACKLASH

Gooch extended his lead over powers to a strong 7 point stretch while Talon jumped from 5th to 3rd and Digger leaps from 6th to a tie for 4th with Holly, pushing Jon down to the 6th spot, Cory jumps Bone, and Pancho debuts on the rankings!...

EXTREMERULES

Gooch's lead shrinks to 1 point as Powers... ermm powers through the field to close the gap.  Digger leaps inactive Holly and struggling Talon to take the 3rd place position 5 points behind Powers (6 behind Gooch), Jon and Cory move into better positioning thanks to Holly's missed week controlling 5th and 6th place respectively and Bone's 19 points are good enough to move into 7th leaving Holly and Pancho as the inactive sliders of the month!


$ MONEY IN THE BANK $


Annnnnd now we're current... Lets see what M.I.T.B. brought us with THREE matches worth 3 points, it was a great opportunity to CASH IN and make a move up the rankings.  Gooch maintained his one point lead on Mike Powers and Digger's bad card dropped him from 3rd to a virtual tie with Jon in 4th with Cory right on their tails.. Bone continues to work towards competing and with Holly and Pancho again a no-show, it looks like a 7 man race... Now we get the constant CASH IN bonus questions, yahoo!!!! 


....Next up is the stupidest PPV name in quite some time... GREAT BALLS OF FIRE.  >_>

NO MERCY:

Cory and Powers come out of No Mercy with the top scores, while Gooch followed close behind. Powers is pretty much at an insurmountable lead, but the race for second place could get interesting with everyone chasing Gooch. We head to Hell in a Cell next.

HELL IN A CELL:

Cory is coming on strong with another strong performance at the HitC ppv, cleaning up with a high score of 14. Talon and Jon follow close behind with 13 a piece. While Powers has a firm control on first place, Cory has moved into second place by a slumping Gooch. Only a few more events left, can anyone make Powers uncomfortable? TLC is next!

TLC:

Gooch comes away with the TLC win with Cory following close behind, thanks to hitting on three of the four bonus questions. We all know who reigns supreme in the league standings though. The battle for 2nd remains close as we set our sights on NxT Takeover: WarGames and Surivor Series! Can anyone reasonably make a run at Powers? This would be the chance to try and get within an arms reach or an opportunity for Powers to firmly slam the door on all those who dare challenge his WWE prowess!

NXT TakeOver: War Games

With his back against the wall, Gooch comes out swinging and scores the top score for the show with a solid 10 points, besting Cory by a point, which locks them in a second place tie. Powers still keeps a comfortable lead on the two though heading into Survivor Series.

Survivor Series   

Cory makes his move as he tries to chase Powers down with a dominating performance of 21 points. He was the only one to predict one of the bonus elimination questions right. A truly impressive performance, but will it lead to the momentum needed to catch Powers before the end of the season? Next up is the Smackdown exclusive, Clash of Champions!

Clash of Champions

Talon, Jon, and Gooch take home the top spot in this event as all three end up with identical scores of 14, but the bigger story here was Powers able to extend his lead on second place Cory.   


NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia    

Jon cleans up with a nearly perfect event score, as once again, Powers extends his lead over Cory.


Royal Rumble   

Contest newcomer, Black Death comes out with the Rumble's top score with a 23 point showing. Pancho follows close behind with an incredible 5 bonus points. Powers extends his lead even more and at this point with only 4 more events left before crowing a season winner... it might be all she wrote barring a complete collapse by Powers. Meanwhile, Gooch falls from third to sixth and Talon moves up to third, just a point back from second place in Cory.

Elimination Chamber   

BD is on fire, but he joined in this contest much too late, but is proving to be a threat for next season as we begin to close out this season. BD wins the event with a solid score of 17, with the one... the only... Mike Powers finishing in right behind him with a score of 16, which pretty much all but clinches the championship with only 3 events left. Talon moves into second place and the best person to catch Powers, but unless we see Powers have a huge let down in the final turn of the season, it appears unlikely.

NXT TakeOver: New Orleans   

BD keeps his hot streak going as he once again tops the leaderboard, this time sharing the honors with Gooch! Needing a good event weekend, Talon and Cory who are aiming to chase down Powers... Talon slips up with a event worst 5 points while Cory only gains a single point on Powers. He'll need a giant Mania to catch the reigning 3x champ.

Wrestlemania 34 Pre-Show   

It might all be over as Powers extends his lead back to 20 points over Cory with just the main show left to hold on. Prediction newcomer Christie Wilkinson takes home the pre-show highest point total with 7!

Wrestlemania 34   

We have crowned a 2017-18 WWE Prediction Champion... MIKE POWERS! FOUR IN A ROW! Pancho and Powers tie for the event's highest point total with 21! It was a great season... Cory and Talon gave it their all in their bid to catch the champ... but Powers proved to be the best! This season did not go without some controversy as rumors swirled of dirt sheets being used... does the daunted * become linked to the only champion ever known to our prediction league? Whether or not that is the case, is irrelevant as Powers once again... stands on top of the mountain! Next season, he will begin his bid for 5!

Greatest Royal Rumble    

Powers kicks off his run at 5 in a row with a solid performance, sitting with a respectable score of 19... but it was the Digger of Graves that comes out on top with an event high 20 POINTS! The season is early and this is by no means how things will finish, but it's tight through the season's first event!   

Backlash   

If only the actual show was as exciting as our points standings are through two events. No surprise though that our two leaders through the first points update is our perennial winner... Mr. Mike Powers.... and our perennial brides maid... Mr. Buckson Gooch. The fans are ready for a new face of the prediction league... and much like Backlash and in their reaction to a certain "Big Dog"... might just walkout if Powers continues to roam the top of the heap. Stay tuned...

Fixed that for you. Maybe I'll start playing and let LT make the pics for me. Him mashing the keyboard probably has as good of odds of me picking.
