A) John Cena is now routinely involved in the best matches and segments of the night. Think about that for a minute.

B) This Twitter account is hilarious. I can't decide if Bram's contracts expire every twenty minutes or they're just signing clones.

So Team Bella is getting larger. First Alicia Fox, now the referee:

This screams of some producer remembering that Cole threatened a lawsuit after the show was written and scrambled to do this.

What does "Does the briefcase get raised?" mean?

@milkman@redyoshi@euler_riemann_zeta@ngilko

A) I fucked up and meant "Does the title get raised?"

B) It's like the Austin/McMahons ladder match where, when Austin climbed the ladder to take the briefcase, it mysteriously got raised higher than would be actually possible to grab.

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.

Krazy™ Time!

  1. WWE announces that they've bought TNA.
  2. One of the tag teams in the Elimination Chamber match can't fit in the pod.
  3. Seth Rollins retains after Roman Reigns takes out Dean Ambrose.
