So... was this the worst PPV this year? I can't recall another PPV as bad as this one.

Um, I didn't like TLCS, but I'm not even sure of that because, unlike the other times there was a NXT show, there wasn't a week gap between shows to cool our brains down from the great NXT show; instead we go straight from a high from watching NXT to falling off a cliff with TLCS. So, even if the show wasn't as bad as say Battleground, it feels way worse since we didn't have breathing room.

A Stairs Match is a match is which only steel stairs can be used as a legal weapon. This weapon can be used at any point during the match and, on top of the regular stairs at ringside, there will be extra pairs of stairs for the participants to use. The objective of the match will be to beat your opponent by pinfall or submission and the end of the match can happen at any time (even if the stairs haven't been used).

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.

This is the season finale as The Royal Rumble will mark the start of a new season with new points. Also, for the essay, 150 words is a cap, not a requirement. As for who gets points, we'll read them and whoever gets close to what it actually was will get points.

Main roster Ascension makes NXT Ascension look good:

@toisul: Since the PPV is on Sunday, they'll probably post it on Friday or Saturday.

If he wins even just one fight, I'll be super impressed. It's really not wise to start a fight career so late and after being so damn beat up, but hey, Batista did it so maybe Punk can too. Hell, the Green Ranger did it too! Although he's been a martial artist his whole life, so, yeah.

Whoa, I'm not saying that they fought pushovers (and I'm certainly not saying that I could beat them), but Batista's opponent was supposed to be some amateur guy who's name is Rashid "Don't Call Me Rashad" Evans and ended up being a guy with a losing record and both JDF and Batista's fights were nowhere near UFC level.

I'm not hoping for the worst and I feel that Punk and Dana both know that he has some work to do to be UFC level, but there's a much greater chance of this going sideways than not.

So many questions.

In dumb storyline news WWE is hinting at revealing the identity of the Anonymous Raw GM, which they already did

If you're ever wondering how dumb WWE thinks you are, this is how dumb.

Whatever, nothing tops when, after Over the Limit 2012 when Big Show turned heel and help Big Johnny win against Cena, they said that, after Show was fired on the go-home Raw, Big Johnny offered him a contract, which he signed, on Saturday. That forgets the stipulation they made on the same go-home show saying that, if any signed WWE Superstars interfered, they would be fired and Johnny would lose his job. WWE ran with it until Twitter blew up with people mocking them for forgetting/botching their own storyline with that oversight and then Cole spent the rest of the show saying it was a handshake agreement, which isn't legally binding and Show only signed his contract on Monday morning.

So, not only do they think you're dumb, have a bad memory and think you won't care about irregularities, they themselves don't give enough of a fuck to care/remember.

Also, in hilarious news, Chris Jericho addressed the allegations Punk made that he would have only been interested in getting in contact with Punk to talk about it on his podcast/profit from Punk and basically denies it. The thing that makes it fucking hysterical and sad at the same time is that Jericho talked about that on his exclusive TweetSecret page, a page that requires a $2.99/month subscription to watch the full video.

So, it looks like NJPW is going to launch its own streaming service called NJPW World, with a formal announcement being made on December 1st.

I'm going to guess that it will be Japan only, but who knows.
