OO vs. WL: PPV PREDICTIONS WARFARE!  
RAW presents Unforgiven 
September 19, 2005

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

 

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.

With WrestleLine not participating, I won’t bother listing any of their writers within the yearly stats part. Once they come back from hiatus, I’ll start listing them again.

The points were distributed at Unforgiven as follows…

1 point: Ric Flair over Carlito
2 points:
Trish/Ashley over Victoria/Torrie
3 points:
Big Show over Snitsky
4 points:
Shelton Benjamin over Kerwin White
5 points:
Matt Hardy over Edge
6 points:
Cade/Murdoch over Hurricane/Rosey
7 points:
Shawn Michaels over Chris Masters
8 points:
Angle over Cena (DQ is irrelevant)

Just a quick note on the main event, since Rick mentioned how clusterfucky the finish was in the best PPV recap in all the land, or something. As soon as I read how fucking insane the finish was, I jumped over to WWE.com where, I figured, they would try to rewrite history with a simple strapline and make things seem like they 1) were normal, and 2) made sense. Upon getting to the WWE.com webpage, under a graphic of Cena holding up the belt, the line simply read:

“Angle wins, Cena retains.”

Good enough for me, since all I care about for the purposes of our contest is who won the match.

All right, time for the numbers. The leaders this time around were Canadian Bulldog, The Cubs Fan… and me? How in the blue fuck did that happen? I guess waiting to read the general consensus really does help. Anywho, the three of us went 7-1 (.875) and scored 35 points. Man, that first match messed us up… who would have guessed that Carlito would lose to Flair? Well, aside from Matt.

The losers this time were Calum Macbeth and Big Danny T, who still went a respectable 5-3 (.625) with 23 points. Everyone else went 6-2 (.750), although point totals varied. You can see the breakdown below.

Because WrestleLine has gone on hiatus, as opposed to turning yellow and just running away, this is not a “forfeit win” or anything for us. That doesn’t stop me from totaling the numbers though… We went 61-19 (.763), which is certainly respectable, but still doesn’t touch our record from New Year’s Revolution. Our team point average was 30.1.

Here come the yearly stats for OO…
