OO vs. WL: PPV PREDICTIONS WARFARE!  
SD! presents the Great American Bash 
July 25, 2005

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

 

Gotta get past the ad box on Online Onslaught… Gotta come up with 125 words…
 
I’m a Steve Carell fan, which started after I saw the movie Anchorman earlier this year. Coincidentally around that time, the show on NBC called The Office, which starred Carell, started up. I found The Office funnier than most people did (especially if all the Internet feedback is any indication), I think because I’ve been 

around white-collar workers and the office lifestyle (so to speak) all my life.

But now I see an advertisement for a movie called The 40 Year-Old Virgin, and I’m getting nervous. I think Carell is one of those comedic actors who, like Will Ferrell, will leap into his role and act the hell out of it no matter how dumb it is. This is called “rising above your material,” but I think no matter how well Carell rises above this, it’s going suck. Hard.

Here’s hoping The Office comes back, and that The 40 Year-Old Virgin is at least tolerable. And, here’s hoping I get to the point and get to the stats!

Our contests are based on two criteria: points and percentage. The percentage is pure, with no bonuses or anything. With points, each match is given a certain point value depending on its place on the card; the first match is worth one point, the second worth two, and so on. I’m also keeping track of how well we do when guessing the main events specifically. At the Great American Bash, the points were distributed thusly:

1 point: RW Animal & Heidenreich over MNM
2 points:
Booker T over Christian
3 points:
Orlando Jordan over Chris Benoit
4 points:
Undertaker over Muhammad Hassan
5 points:
Mexicools over bWo
6 points:
Rey Mysterio over Eddie Guerrero
7 points:
Melina over Torrie Wilson
8 points:
JBL over Batista (DQ is irrelevant)

The point winner of the night was OO’s The Cubs Fan, who went 4-4 (.500) and scored 22 points. The percentage winner was WL’s Zac Hanscom, who went 5-3 (.625) and scored 19 points.

The bottom-feeder this time was the usually strong Downtown Dave Richard from WL, who went 1-7 (.125) and scored a measly 7 points. The ass of OO was Canadian Bulldog, who went 2-6 (.250) and only scored 9 points. Jeb Lund from OO also went 2-6, but he managed to score 12 points.

OO’s writers went a combined 27-45 (.375) and 15.0 PPW. Hilariously, this was enough to beat WL, who went 24-48 (.333) and 11.8 PPW. Notice that for the percentage, we were close; only three picks separated the teams. But when a .375 percentage is enough for a win, you know everyone did badly.

Overall, all writers went 51-93 (.354) and 13.4 PPW. Eighteen writers participated for each team, nine each. This PPV has set new records for lowest OO team percentage, lowest WL team percentage, and lowest combined team percentage. Humiliating for everyone.

Here is the complete breakdown of stats, not only for Great American Bash but for the 2005 season as well. Of note, due to Zac Hanscom’s participation for this PPV, he now qualifies for individual stat ranking.
