OO vs. WL: PPV PREDICTIONS WARFARE!  
RAW presents New Year's Revolution 
January 10, 2005

by PyroFalkon 
Independent Auditor for OnlineOnslaught.com and WrestleLine.com

 

Happy 2005, all! Hopefully the roughly two thousand PPVs the WWE has planned for us this year won’t result in burnout… it probably will, but one can hope.
 
As a personal aside, I have to say that New Year’s Revolution kicked mucho ass. I know that most of the undercard was crap (or injury-laden), but the main event was a mouthwash to the crap that preceded it. Could this be an early pick for Match of 2005? 

I’m taking over scoring starting this year for the PPV battles between 

Online Onslaught and WrestleLine. In case you haven’t seen this before, here’s the way the scoring system works. It’s a marriage between Denny Burkholder’s point-based system and Rick Scaia’s percentage-only system. This way, there are two winners per month.

Additionally, the website winner is not purely percentage anymore. It’s also based on points-per-writer. Simply put, if the writers of one site picked more correctly, but the writers of the other picked better QUALITY, then the sites draw.

Finally, a new stat for everyone this year will be strictly their main event picks. Rick Scaia at Online Onslaught only got about 50% of his matches right overall in 2004, but he was about 75% right on main events. For scoring purposes, “main event” is defined as the final match PER BRAND on a given PPV, plus the last match that mixes both brands. So most PPVs will have one main event, some will have two, and the Royal Rumble will have three.

Points are based on the location of a match on the card. The first match is one point, the second is two points, and so on. Here’s how the points were assigned at New Year’s Revolution:

1 point: Eugene/Regal over Christian/Tomko
2 points: Trish over Lita
3 points: Shelton Benjamin over Maven (the “rematch” doesn’t count)
4 points: Muhammad Hassan over Jerry Lawler
5 points: Kane over Gene Snitsky
6 points: Triple H wins the Elimination Chamber (main event)

The point and percentage winners overall are a three-way tie. Canadian Bulldog, Jonathan Leung, and Ryan Deppa all went 6-0, scoring a perfect 21 points. Bulldog represents OO, and the others represent WL. As a footnote, although it won’t help him in the 2005 totals, this is Leung’s second straight PPV where he’s gone perfect.

In last place for points is Daniel Fitch from WrestleLine, who went 4-2 but only scored 10 points. Whiffing the last two matches really hurt his score. In last place for percentage was Denny Burkholder from WrestleLine, who only got half the matches right. Everyone from Online Onslaught went .667 or better.

Three people missed the main event. They were Rick Scaia from Online Onslaught, and Sean Swift and Daniel Fitch from WrestleLine. Everyone else got it right.

Online Onslaught BARELY won both the percentage and points battles. We went a total of 48-12 (.800) and 17.3 PPW (points per writer). WrestleLine trailed by going 33-9 (.786) and 17.0 PPW. Online Onslaught is now 1-0 for 2005. Overall, we all went 81-21 (.794) and 17.2 PPW. 17 writers total participated.

Here are the complete standings from New Year’s Revolution. Online Onslaught writers are in red, WrestleLine writers are in blue.
