@kirillorlov: THERE'S A PPV THIS WEEKEND?!

Oh shit... Okay, here is your hastily put together LoC:

1) Papercut – 119
2) KirillOrlov - 114
3) RecSpec, DrX25 – 113
5)GorillaMoPena - 109
6)Amp_1986 - 106
7)DazzHardy, PDXSonic, Boom_goes_the_dynamite – 105
10) Icytower38 - 104
11) Lumley, Euler_Riemann_Zeta, MeatSim – 103
14) Natedogg2 – 100
15) Badseed, Brodehouse, MayorMikeAckbar – 99
18) Aronleon - 97
19) McGray90, GunslingerPanda - 96
21) MjHealy - 94
22) Xanadu - 92
23) Redyoshi – 90
24) Theveej, Gooddoggy - 85
26) Milkman, Marino – 80
28) Shinmaru007 – 75
29) MoCBucket62, Chance_S – 74
31) Elvicerator – 68
32) Ajamafalous - 66
33) DrDarkStryfe - 63
34) VierasTalos - 61
35) Sammo21, ZookZoltn – 58
37) Krullban – 57
38) Undeadpool – 47
39) Commisar123 – 32
40) Lord_canti - 25

So here are the official rules:

  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Simply predict the answers to each question and, for every correct one, you get a point (unless stated otherwise); you don't lose anything for getting it wrong.
  • You do not have to bet on every match and you don't have to answer every question.
  • Whoever is in #1 after the PPV is allowed to have the Championship belt in their avatar.
  • If your prediction post is edited after the PPV, then you are disqualified for the event.
  • You must have your predictions in before the PPV/Pre-Show begins.
  • If the match ends in a draw (if Mark Henry suplexes The Big Show and the ring implodes, etc.), the prediction is cancelled and no points will be awarded/taken away.
  • Your final total (i.e. the one that will appear in the rankings) is the sum of all your PPV predictions subtracted by the lowest PPV prediction total. E.g. say I've done 3 PPVs (with scores of 30, 25 and 40), the score that would appear in the rankings is 30 + 40 = 70. If I were to participate in a fourth PPV (and I got a score of 20), then my new total would be 25 + 30 + 40 = 95.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.
  • Special Thanks to @EricSmith who is donating a year membership to Giant Bomb Premium to whoever has the best cumulative score throughout 2015.

@dazzhardy: It won't be on the network, but it should be on ESPN's site at some point.

So, I saw the thread title before watching the show and it was still a surprise to see him breathing fire.

Also, Marty "The Moth" Martinez? Was that guy literally deus ex machina to give Hernandez the out for the win?

Jesus, I had no clue the PPV was this week, I'll go make the LoC stuff in a bit.

After thinking about it, it's Hot Fuzz. I like that movie so much I bought it on HD-DVD.

As for making a full order, I don't think I can actually rank the other two as I've been flip-flopping the order of both films for the last five minutes.
