This is the yearly results thread wherein I collect all the PPV prediction data, put it through my number cruncher, and regurgitate it on here for everyone to see. It's been 11 years of PPV predictions now here on The-W, or at least, 11 years that I've been doing this. The results are from Elimination Chamber 2014 through Royal Rumble 2015.
This is where I cut-and-paste for new folks:
I split the results into three categories based on the number of PPVs guessed. The top level is for those who guess between 6-12 PPVs; the middle level is for those who guessed 4 and 5; and finally, the lower level is for those who guessed 1-3. Since I don't think it would be fair for someone who guessed only one PPV and went 4-0 to win the title, I arbitrarily made the decision to make only those who guessed between 6-12 eligible for the big prize. It also encourages people to predict more PPVs. If you are atop the other two levels, you can also proclaim yourself winner of that level at least, even if it's not the overall crown.
Pobody's nerfect, so if you see a mistake, feel free to PM me and I'll make the correction if necessary.
Other factoids for the year: Total predictors were down to 68 from 78 last year (and 86 the year before). Level three predictors were way down, but we had more people predicting all 12 PPVs than I can remember.
Most guessed PPV: Wrestlemania (duh) with 56, followed by Elmination Chamber with 47 and Summerslam with 43.
Least guessed PPV: TLC, again, with 29 (still five more than last year's least-guessed).
The new season begins with a new PPV: Fastlane. I'll have the prediction thread up after the go-home Raw. Good luck to all this year!

I'll happily take that #2 spot with the knowledge that (Wrestlemania aside) I can't have watched more than 2 hours of WWE all year.
Thanks for pulling all of this together.

Wow, thanks! This is the first time I've seen one of these, though I see my accuracy wasn't much past 50/50. Granted, a lot of my 'predictions' were hopeful guesses, not who I actually thought was going to be booked to go over. Maybe this year I'll try and up that number a bit Appreciate the effort it must have taken to compile this!
