Hey all, I've devised a ratings & rankings system to determine who's been the best in the WWF so far. Here's the points system:
Undisputed Title per day 3 points Intercontinental Title per day 2 points Tag Team Title per day 1 point Hardcore Title per day 1 point European Title per day 1 point Cruiserweight Title per day 1 point Royal Rumble winner 20 point bonus King of the Ring winner 20 point bonus PPV Main Event 10 point bonus RAW/Smackdown Main Event 5 point bonus
You get awarded points for each day of a title reign (so the stupid 15 second Hardcore reigns are eliminated), and the titles are ranked by subjective importance. The Royal Rumble and King of the Ring winners get 20 point bonuses, while if you main event a show [10 points for a PPV, 5 for RAW or Smackdown], you get points. Remember, the main event is the LAST NON-BATTLE ROYAL MATCH. There, I'm covered. Now, check out the rankings and give me your thoughts on how to perfect the system!

So you don't get awarded for a regular victory outside of the main event? I don't like that. If you're not the champ, you're worthless in this system. Witness Jericho on top despite his recent frequent losses or Angle ranked below Tajiri or Billy and Chuck.
I would award points for winning any match, but on a progressive basis. By that I refer to "having momentum". Having a decent record by alternating wins and losses means your going nowhere. Having a decent record with a 15-match win streak should be worth a lot more because it means you got pushed. Likewise having a 15-match loss streak should be a bigger penalty because it means you got buried.
3 points for being current champ. two points per win by pin/submission/stipulation, one point per win due to opponent being dq'd or counted out or draw. have a ranking, rating (0-100 based on wins over losses, points, and ranking. like cigars or wine. Benoit would have a rating of say 95, albert maybe 50) and total points per year.

I say Screw the Rules! The best wrestler is the one who entertaines the most people...
If youre a champ it does not mean automaticly that youre a good or the best wrestler/entertainer...
I didn't like Y2J as a champ and he won because he cheated... So no points there. You can't just count title wins. That's just ain't fair... While Y2J was champ, I still liked Austin and Angle way more than Y2J...
Entertainment value is more important then titlewins, that's my point of view...
Godammit! I've been working on a very similar ratings system for a column over the next coupla days. Freeway, hope you don't get too pissed off if/when I send it to Z. They're similar, but not identical.

Let me add some input as a WCW fan. I seem to remember Billy Kidman pinning Hogan in a situation other than the famous “confrontation”. If memory serves, it was in a handicap match pitting Mike Awesome and Kidman against Hogan.
