Watching raw was pretty much - ORTON WINS THE RUMBLE. I hoped they wouldn't make it obvious as usual *sigh*

So now that the outcome is obvious.........

Introducing.....

GRAPL
G-R's-Amazing-Prediction-League

It's simple the Friday (early just this once) before the Royal Rumble, No Way Out and Wrestlemania I'll post a form for you to fill in and give your predictions. You'll be scored on these predictions and your points will be accumulated in a table. Top of the table after Wrestlemania? You win!

There'll be a maximum of 12 points for each PPV. 7-8 points will be for predicting the winner of each match and the rest will be put on side predictions of varying difficulty.

Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. As of now the prizes are a mystery but I promise that they will be worth it. To enter all you have to do is fill in the prediction form for the Royal Rumble below and post it in the thread. You can change your predictions at any time up till 11pm Sunday of the PPV.


Rules:
1. My decision is final.
2. In case of a tiebreak the amount I've allocated for that prize slot will be split and the prizes below will be changed accordingly.
3. Any changes to the PPV after I've posted the prediction form will be ignored and the predictions for that match will be null and void.
4.You can make as many changes as you wish up to the 11pm Sunday deadline.
5. You can enter as little PPV's as you like.
6. All PPV's will have 12 points up for grabs.
7. I may add to these rules at any time.

Here goes....

Throughout wrestling is soled as a barbaric form of entertainment ... with alot of focus on hardcore stuff like weapons, blading etc ... exactly the opposite to what Vince is trying to sell it as now! I don't really like the completely tame product we get nowadays ... but in the movie it is soled as a completely sick sport with no real focus on the athleticism.

Personally I thought it was more to do with the fact that it portrays the industry as one that ditches and forgets its stars and encourages drug use to achieve success, with little care for the well being of the wrestlers. Something that Vince is incredibly guilty of in many an opinion. Too many former WWE wrestlers, and wrestlers in general have died of health problems/drug use for my liking.

From what I've read in Mick Foley's second book - and watched on Monday Night Wars - Vince seemed to be a really, really nice guy. Back then anyway. :?

In the upcoming Starrcade DVD, WWE talking heads claim WCW devalued & ruined the event by having too many Pay Per Views.

I think the irony-o-matic just broke.

Yup.

If it weren't for WCW, they may never have moved up from four per year. WCW kept upping their PPV ratio, so WWF could only follow. :lol:

WCW PPVs all felt different. Bash at the Beach was the one with a beach theme (it actually took place on a beach one year), Road Wild was outside during the Sturgis bike rally. World War 3 was the 3 ring battle royal. Uncensored was...Uncensored. Souled Out originally an nWo event. Fall Brawl, 2 rings surrounded by a cage ('War Games'). They weren't just names.

WWE currently have 14 PPVs a year. Only about 3 of them are truly different from one another.
