OO vs. WL: PPV PREDICTIONS WARFARE!  
WWE SummerSlam 2005
August 22, 2005

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

 

It’s 
If anyone has been following our game for awhile, you know one thing: I (PyroFalkon) suck. I always pick from the heart, or something, and usually come out on the short end of the stick. This month wasn’t REALLY any different, because I killed my score betting against the champions. Well, against the WWE and World Heavyweight Champions. We all knew Orlando Jordan was going to last long.
 
I could make the excuse that I don’t watch SmackDown!, and that could be killing my scores. However, most of it comes from me simply picking from the heart instead of logic. I mean, I KNEW that Bradshaw was pretty much used up, and I KNEW the WWE never cuts Jericho a break. Did that stop me from picking either of those guys? Of course not!

 
But I’m taking up these three paragraphs explaining myself only for two reasons: 1) I have no stories to tell for a pre-ramble to 2) get past the bloody ad box on Online Onslaught. You WrestleLine readers are so lucky.

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. DQs, countouts, and interference are all irrelevant; all that matters is who the writer picked to win, and whether he did.

At the SummerSlam, the points were like this:

1 point: Chris Benoit over Orlando Jordan
2 points:
Edge over Matt Hardy
3 points:
Rey Mysterio over Eddie Guerrero
4 points:
Kurt Angle over Eugene
5 points:
Randy Orton over Undertaker
6 points:
John Cena over Chris Jericho
7 points:
Batista over JBL (SmackDown! main event)
8 points:
Hulk Hogan over Shawn Michaels (RAW main event)

The alpha male for this month was Ryan Deppa from WrestleLine, going a perfect 8-0 for 36 points. This is Ryan’s 4th perfect night, which also includes New Year’s Revolution, Royal Rumble, and Backlash. He now leads us all in most perfect nights. Jerk.

At Online Onslaught, we had four writers go 7-1 (.875). They were Matt Hocking, Adam Gutschmidt, Jeb Lund, and Calum Macbeth. Adam scored 28 points; the rest scored 33 each.

Technically, the retard of the both groups is me, but The Cubs Fan in an unusual situation. Well, not that unusual, since I was in the same boat for Judgment Day. That is, TCF didn’t get a pick in for one match (Orton/Taker), so he went 4-3 (.571) and scored only 18 points. I wasn’t much better, going 4-4 (.500) and scoring 16 points.

For WL, Downtown Dave Richard had the worst record and score at 5-3 (.625) and 29 points. Yeah, if that’s the worst they can do, you know OO is in trouble.

Everybody from WrestleLine and three writers from Online Onslaught got both main events right. Everyone else split them 1-1.

WL takes the win this month, going 40-8 (.833) and 32.5 PPW. OO only managed 58-21 (.734) and 25.6 PPW. All of us went a combined 98-29 (.772) and 29.1 PPW. We have now surpassed 1000 picks for the year, and we’ve still got 4 months left!

Sixteen writers participated; ten from OO, six from WL. WL in fact ties its record-low number of writers with No Way Out.

Here is the complete breakdown of stats, not only for SummerSlam, but for the 2005 season as well. By not participating this time, Zac Hanscom no longer qualifies for individual stat ranks.
