    WC Predictions League: Season 12 (2022 - 2023)

    around and around and around again
    the fun and suffering never ends
    copy and paste let's gooooooooo




    Welcome to a new season of the WC Predictions League!


    The rules are simple:

    1. Feel free to join in


    - You don't have to ask permission. This isn't some exclusive club that you need permission to join, as long as you're a signed up member of WC then just post your predictions and I'll add you to the league.

    2. Making your predictions

    - A predictions thread will be created by me shortly before each PPV and then you must PM me your picks. The post I make will be quite large (having the pictures for each match-up etc) but you don't need to copy/paste all that, I'll make a little template underneath where you just need to add in your predictions.

    3. Scoring


    - This can get complicated, so pay attention:-

    a) You get one point for naming the correct winner of any match, if you predict the correct winner and the correct finish (pin, submission, etc...) you'll get two points. However, if you predict Cena wins via submission but he wins via pinfall you get no points.

    Certain stipulation matches involve the finish as already being dictated by the match type; a Ladder Match will see a competitor win by climbing the ladder and grabbing their prize, this being the case predicting this will gain you no points as it involved no effort or brain power to gain the point.

    An extra point can also be gained by predicting the finish down to the last detail (finishing move, interference, etc...) this is a gamble however, because the more detailed you get the more you risk, getting it wrong at any point will ensure you score zero for that match. For instance if The Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania 29 were predicted to have The Rock win via pin following a Rock Bottom after interference by John Laurinaitis and this is exactly what happens, except The Rock wins without using the Rock Bottom. You score nothing. Get it? If not, feel free to ask.

    b) Bonus questions will be worth as many points as they are announced as being worth and are scored by the rules set out for each individual question at the time of the contest being posted.

    c) Scores will be posted in this thread after every PPV and a running total of every participants scores will be updated in this post. Scores will be posted no more than a few days (usually) after the event takes place. Any disputes over scoring must be made before the next PPV. They can be made privately (in a PM to me) or publicly inside this thread.

    4. Predictions Posts

    a) The predictions thread will usually be posted immediately after the go-home show ends on Friday before the PPV. If you make your predictions not long after the post is created, try and remember to send new predictions to me when matches are announced after you post.

    The predictions thread may also contain spoilers if you haven't watched the previous RAW or SmackDown.

    b) Predictions can be made and edited up until the start of the kickoff show an hour before the PPV. Any predictions made after this time will not be counted and any predictions edited after this time will be disqualified; this is the case whether the edited match prediction has taken place or not.

    5. The League Table


    - If at any time your username changes; please inform me via PM or by posting in this thread. Please include your old and new name so that your scores can be tallied correctly.



    Winners Circle
    Season 11 (2021-2022) - Thundercat
    Season 10 (2020-2021) - Wolf Beast & Thundercat
    Season 9 (2019-2020) - The Phantom
    Season 8 (2018-2019) - CGS
    Season 7 (2017-2018) - Madness
    Season 6 (2016-2017)
    - PeepShow
    Season 5 (2015-2016) - Kintaro
    Season 4 (2014 - 2015) - Sykotic
    Season 3 (2013 – 2014) - Sykotic

    Season 1 (2011 - 2012) - RaiZ-R
    Season 0.5 (2010 - 2011) - Welbek


    We're in a new season lads. A fresh start for all of us!

    As mentioned previously, any suggestions for changes or improvements to this thingo will be welcomed and considered. Do y'all want to stick with WWE only, or introduce AEW shows into the apect? Do you want the option to wager points at certain stages? Offer your suggestions in this thread and I'll happily take them under consideration.

    Expect the Backlash predictions thread up, like, whenever I guess.

    Since Thundercats retired, that makes me the current reigning league champion right? Cool.

    I know it would be more work for you, or maybe someone else can help you with the picks, but I think including at the very least AEW PPVs/special shows and maybe even Impact PPVs would be nice to see as some of us have more interest in one of those at times compared to WWE.

    I like the sound of this. WWE, AEW, Impact if we get the numbers... Hell, we could just do multiple awards, 'Best WWE Predictor', 'Best AEW Predictor', 'Best Impact Predictor', 'Best Overall Predictor', etc, so if someone doesn't have any interest in predicting WWE stuff, they can just stick with Impact or AEW and see if they can get on top of Impact only predictions or AEW only predictions.

    I'm sure we got the numbers for WWE and AEW, but if someone gives me a reminder a few days before the next Impact PPV, we can do a test run and see what numbers we get.

    Anyway, putting the Backlash thread up shortly. Thanks for the suggestions y'all.

    Backlash is in the books! And no I'm not calling it Wrestlemania Backlash, it's a stupid name.

    Let's check out the leader board!

    Spoiler:



    WOWZERS LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS.

    As per usual, please send all angry letters about a potential incorrect score to Stamford, Connecticut.

    Next in the WWE Predictions is Hell In A Cell, however AEW Double or Nothing happens like a week before that, so shall we give that one a go in the prediction round too? Same with the next Impact PPV if y'all want.

    …..Damn me for choosing results that made sense. Should have known that WWE never does that.

    For sure, I would love to add the other PPVs, and if you will have me and need me to I can take setting up the threads for the other two PPV prediction threads and give you the results when I have them.

    Re: WC Predictions League: Season 12 (2022 - 2023)

    Winner winner! Nice!

    Will the AEW and iMPACT ones count towards the overall tally? I feel like I could get away with predicting AEW shows with some semblance of accuracy but I'm incredibly out of touch with iMPACT so I'd be purely guessing with that! I'll happily give everything a go though.

    Yup.

    In essence, there'll be four categories (or three if Impact doesn't get the numbers) - WWE-based Predictions, AEW-based predictions, Impact-based Predictions, and Overall WC Predictions. The winner of this season will be the person who gets on top of the Overall WC Predictions tally through a combination of the other three categories.

    But if you don't give a shit about 2/3 of the companies, you could instead just focus on being the guy who can predict that company the best. I ain't forcing everyone to predict everything, just as much as they want.

Zero points if you get the correct winner & method, but incorrect move. You dig? The prediction has to be 100% accurate, so if you're unsure on the move and method, it can be safe to just go with the winner. Etc. Etc.

    Re: WC Predictions League: Season 12 (2022 - 2023)

    Alright let's check out some results!

    But first, some STATS!

    Out of all the predictions, five matches garnered a 100% successful prediction rate across the board: MJF vs Wardlow, Cole vs Joe, House of Black vs Death Triangle, Cargill vs Jayy, & Hookhausen vs Nese/Sterling. Though I don't think any of those results were particularly unexpected.

    The match with the least successful prediction rate was Darby Allin vs Kyle O'Reilly, as only one person correctly guessed that KOR would score the W there.

    Everyone got the closer correct, while nobody got the opener correct.

    Only one person correctly got the shortest match.

    The match with the most visible split was Bucks vs Hardys - a clear 50/50 split in terms of who thought who would win.

    Alright that's enough of those stats.

    Results for Double or Nothing, which currently also stand as the current AEW-Only Predictions rankings:

    Spoiler:



    And now, the overall ranking, tallying every prediction card so far:

    Spoiler:



    wowzers.

    If you believe there has been an error in calculating this, let me know and I'll re-tally the results. You have until I delete those messages from my inbox to make room for the weekly dick picks Duke sends in. I never asked for them but I've come to look forward to this weekly tradition. It's a little pick-me-up every Saturday afternoon. Well, not 'little', I shouldn't say little, it's quite a respectable length, but honestly the lighting in the photos leaves something to be desired. Take a photography course, Duke.

    Next up: fuck me is Hell in a Cell this weekend? ffffuck okay fine expect a prediction thread up tomorrow I guess?
