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.

1) WWE Supercard is way too fun for what it really is, but I can't stop playing it for the hook of more cards.

2) Variety is reporting that Dean Ambrose will star in WWE Studios/Lionsgate next collaboration. The movie is called Lockdown and is about a policeman who's trapped in his precinct and is being hunted by corrupt cops while trying to recover the evidence against them.

Programming note for you Canadians in this thread, NXT has been replaced by Main Event on Sportsnet 360 as of this week and it also seems that Vintage Collection is gone.

Also, this is what's currently available for On Demand on the Canadian Network:

-SummerSlam 1992
-SummerSlam 1998
-SummerSlam 2000
-SummerSlam 2002
-SummerSlam 2005
-Great American Bash 1989

-Bash at the Beach 1996
-Bash at the Beach 1998
-ECW Heatwave 1998

-ECW One Night Stand 2005

They might as well just say "VPN the good one".

Pretty sure the second GIF was the kickoff to a storyline where Muta impregnated that lady with his mist and she would later give birth to a giant egg that hatched a wrestler.

Anyway, I stumbled upon Kevin Steen's twitter and he's doing a countdown. Anyone have any ideas what it could be about? (WWE?)

Hey guys, Renee Young has the scoop on the situation:

Dean Ambrose announced his stipulation for SummerSlam (spoilers obviously):

It's a Lumberjack match. Yes, a fucking lumberjack match.

A: No, she's great.

@poser: The deal right now is that the WWE Network TV will be on traditional TV (and available to all providers in the country who want it) as a pay-tv channel (an HBO type channel in your package) and they will offer the on-demand content online (similar to HBO Go) and will soon offer an app exclusive for the Canadian version of the network (so you can access said content on the go).
