Summer Slam Prediction Guidelines
Welcome to the biggest prediction challenge yet! I will try to be as quick about the rules as possible, the prizes are listed below the match/tie-breaker predictions.
Rule 1: I only want you to name the winners of the matches. You can say No Contest as a winner, but you can not say “Punk retains” as the winner. Either Punk wins, or someone else wins, but retaining does not count. If you tell me someone retains I will mark it as that person winning, even if they do retain because of DQ and someone else is technically named the victor.
Rule 2: I have to have a way to get a hold of you. If you DM me on twitter you’ll have to follow me on twitter so I can get a hold of you. If you leave a comment, make sure it’s a real email address! Etc.
Rule 3: Predictions should be listed in the order I have them in. Your guesses should be limited to names. If you want to write reasons why you believe a person is winning, that is fine, as long as it is clear to me who is winning. If it is not clear, your answer is Tyler Reks. He’s that awesome.
Rule 4: Predictions open on Wednesday at midnight EST and will close on Saturday August 18th, at 11:59pm EST. No exceptions.
Rule 5: To enter you may DM me on Twitter ( @SolaceWinter), email me ( SolaceWinter@yahoo.com ) or you may leave a comment below!
Simple rules, right? Now, how to win:
The person who gets through the matches with the most correct is the winner, you know, unless there is a tie. In the case of a tie the people who have tied for most matches move on to tie-breaker 1. Whoever has that one right moves on to tie-breaker 2, and so on. If only one person gets tie-breaker 1 then we don’t move on.
You will also notice there are JPEG titles being given out. These were the original prizes and still go to the winners. Title holders usually are exempt from tie-breakers, but I’m feeling mean this month and so, they are not.
Now, onto the match predictions:
Santino Marella vs. Antonio Cesaro
Kane vs. Daniel Bryan
Miz vs. Rey Mysterio
R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs. Prime Time Players
Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho
CM Punk vs. Big Show vs. John Cena
Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
Tie-breaker 1: During the Preshow and PPV, how many Triple H/Brock Lesnar hype videos will show?
Tie-breaker 2: How often throughout is Big Show referred to as ‘The World’s Largest Athlete’?
Tie-Breaker 3: The color of CM Punk’s gear. (the main color, if it’s mostly green with red and orange, the color is green).
MATCHES ANNOUNCED AFTER THE PREDICTIONS ARE UP DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS PREDICTIONS
On Twitter I will assign you a number. That number gets used as a way to identify your scores throught the PPV, which will be updated as the PPV progresses.
Now for the part you were waiting for. The prizes!
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of Tyler Reks and Curt Hawkins, which is why the first and second place prizes this month are celebrating these two men!
Second prize is a HEATSEEKERS shirt from Turnbuckle Tees.
The two best predictors of the night will also get their names and avatars on the JPEG titles, which they can defend tie-breaker free at the next PPV prediction (Night of Champions).
One random person who chooses Chris Jericho as the winner of the match will get the latest Fozzy album, Sin and Bones.
The last prize goes to last place, to the person who does the absolute worst for predictions! That person gets the Jabroni Jobber prize, which this month is brought to us by Future Endeavors and will be from Colt Merch. Anything $20 or under from Colt Cabana’s shop is yours to choose from… if you lose.
