This, the 16th year, was going to be my last running these prediction threads and tracking the results. When I forgot to post the Royal Rumble predictions until late in the week, that was a signal to me it might be time to let it go.
We were down to just 18 different predictors in 2020, a drop of 10 from the year before and 26 from just three years ago. Interest isn't close to what it used to be, which was another reason I was going to move on.
But alas! I had a change of heart. The prediction threads WILL return for 2021! On the positive side, compiling this isn't nearly as time-consuming anymore! Perhaps the move of WWE Network to Peacock will drive more fans to the product and therefore to the-w.com! I mean, anything's POSSIBLE, right?
The two categories are those who predicted 1-5 PPVs, and those who predicted 6-13. Just in case someone new stumbles upon these threads, a reminder that the prediction season runs from Elimination Chamber 2020 to Royal Rumble 2021.
Not only did Kevintripod win by just .2 percentage points LAST year, he comes back to eke out a win this year by .07 percentage points. Two close calls two years in a row! This is what keeps me coming back.
Speaking of coming back, I hope YOU'LL come back and predict PPVs again this year! And if you haven't done it in the past, we'd love to have you join in on the fun. Look for the Elimination Chamber prediction thread on Monday night after Raw.

Thanks for always doing this! I don’t watch much RAW or Smackdown currently, but I still love to see the predictions. I suppose I could always guess blindly- it would probably go as well as when I actually tried predicting.
It's the most important meal of the day.
Doing good work on this earth, getting up on two decades. No small achievement! I wouldn't have blamed you for ducking out at this point, but I'm glad we have one more year for me to finish solidly in the middle of the pack, as I always have.
The only way I'm buying that DVD is if they have the lost Shotgun Saturday Night matches from when he and the other Truth Commission guy were wrestling under their real names as Armageddon. I need to know that I wasn't imagining it.
