After a staggering 16 PPVs in 2017 thanks to the brand split, 2018 should restore that number back to relatively sane levels, as it was recently announced that all PPVs after Wrestlemania will be dual-brand.
But we're here to talk about 2017, and YOUR performance in the 2017 PPV Predictions. It's lucky number 13 for the years we've been doing this here at The W - that's right, our precious little prediction game is now a teenager! Of course, our year runs from last year's Elimination Chamber until the Royal Rumble of 2018.
I continued going with just two levels for the second year in a row: Therefore, if you predicted one more than half or more of the PPVs on the year (9-16), you're in the first tier. Anything less than that (1-8) lands you in the second tier. This is my subliminal way to encourage you all to predict MORE!
Firstly: Massive thanks again to geemoney for all the work he puts in keeping this alive. The kicking off of the PPV threads, and doing so in a way that encourages participation through copy/paste. Deciphering peoples posts and keeping a tot based on that and WWE's booking would be pretty challenging at times. Must take a chunk of time. So thanks!
Secondly: Congratulations to Kevintripod for taking out this years award, and doing so by predicting all PPV's. That's some elite level prognostication by you! Congrats! Go nuts.
And Finally: 50%!? Hells Bells. So basically at predicting the predetermined outcome of an event I'm no better than a coin flip. I'm starting to think the year that I won wasn't based upon skill, guile, cognitive capacity and transcendent focus like I've been assuming it was all these years. AND I managed to forget two PPVs! So BOOOOOO me.
Shit, better go and tip the Elimination Chamber PPV. When's that thing on again?
Now the NWO has HBK and Nash leading it... What might make it truly interesting is if they brought some young up-and-comer that was the 'next big thing' into the group and got rid of the dead 'wight', if you know what I mean...
