    The first of our three shows - Night of Champions - has come and gone; and with 8 matches on display, plus a special bonus to play for, there were plenty of points on offer to kick things off this week.

    To earn the bonus of 5 points, players had to correctly predict the number of titles that would change hands and the number of titles that would be retained.

    4 players correctly predicted that there would be
    3 title changes and 2 titles retained.

    These 4 players were Bounty Hunter, DM_7, Cheese Wagstaff and beakerjoe. Congrats to all four on their predictions.

    Now it's time to see how the PPV has affected how things stand.


    *Warning - Night of Champions spoilers lie below. Do not read further if you do not want the results from the PPV.*



    For a change, I thought I would publish in full the total points scored for the show, and then reveal further down how it affected our overall table. This way you can see exactly how you compare to other players.

    Night of Champions scores


    Cheese Wagstaff..............33 pts
    DM_7.............................33 pts

    thebostoncrab..................14 pts
    Hashtag_Heel...................10 pts
    Scav XIII.........................9 pts



    Night of Champions Fallout


    Hats off to Cheese Wagstaff and DM_7 for the highest scores of the week and if I'm not mistake this score of 33 pts is the highest tally for a single show. Both men backed The Ascension with their captaincy decisions and both as noted above secured the NOC bonus as well which got them the huge haul.

    I feel a special word of praise is necessary for linvoysblues too. He managed to secure wins with every single member of his squad. I'm not sure this has been done before. If he had correctly predicted the NOC bonus then this would have been total perfection. Still, a very impressive tally nonetheless.

    As you can probably imagine there was a very big average score this week - 21 points.


    Now it's time to see what the overall effect is on our leaderboard...



    Gameweek 13 Standings (Post-PPV)



    1. Cheese Wagstaff................................................................331 points

    2. Mr.Nice Guy......................................................................328 points

    3. Bounty Hunter....................................................................317 points

    4. A Brad Maddox Guy............................................................309 points

    5. DM_7...............................................................................302 points

    6. linvoysblues......................................................................285 points

    7. LeeJM...............................................................................281 points

    8. Scavenger XIII..................................................................266 points

    9. Stereomaniac....................................................................255 points

    10. beakerjoe........................................................................234 points

    11. Hashtag_Heel...................................................................215 points

    12. thebostoncrab..................................................................201 points

    13. Zemuppet........................................................................192 points



    League Fallout


    Congrats to Cheese Wagstaff who regains control at the top. The margin between first and second is now three points.

    Elsewhere linvoysblues climbs from eighth place up to sixth and a late charge for those top places is not an impossibility. It goes to show how quickly things can change with just one show.

    Night of Champions results

    Stardust and The Ascension defeated Neville and the Lucha Dragons

    Kevin Owens defeated Ryback

    Dolph Ziggler defeated Rusev

    The Dudley Boyz defeated Big E and Kofi via D.Q

    Charlotte defeated Nikki Bella

    The Wyatt Family defeated Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho

    John Cena defeated Seth Rollins

    Seth Rollins defeated Sting

    220px-Chris_Jericho_Wrestlemania_28.jpg

    With the return of Chris Jericho, it's likely I will add him as an available option after this week ends. This assumes he is staying around for a bit but I think there's a good chance he will. Sting will probably vanish for a while but if he features in a match again on Raw then I'll probably add him also.

    In other news Kane is back (groan) so he may be a useful option for players to consider now. Cena having the US Title again might make him a very attractive option going forward if they bring back the US challenge segment.


    New players


    Anyone who wishes to play along is welcome to do so. Just post up a seven-person squad and we will allocate you points level with the lowest score in the league and you can work your way up the leaderboard.


    That's it for now. Onward to Raw to see where that leaves us...

    I'm hoping The New Day can get their win back in this 6 man as we speak! When can we change our squads again, from Wednesday onwards, is it?

    I'm hoping The New Day can get their win back in this 6 man as we speak! When can we change our squads again, from Wednesday onwards, is it?

    After the Smackdown results are posted that marks the end of the gameweek so then changes can be made.

    As for when I'll have the Smackdown results, I'm not sure but let's say Thursday.

    I'll have the Raw results up in a short while.

    Monday Night Raw, the second show of this triple-show week, is in the books and that means it's time to take a look at how we did and what effect the show has had on our league table. There have been some interesting developments. Read on for more...


    *Note - Raw spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of Raw.*

    linvoysblues....................11 pts
    Mr.Nice Guy....................10 pts


    Raw Fallout


    Congrats to beakerjoe on pocketing the highest score for Raw. With the exception of Roman Reigns, who didn't compete, every one of his guys picked up wins. Impressive stuff.

    Fair play also to A Brad Maddox Guy, Bounty Hunter, LeeJM and Stereomaniac on all breaking that 20+ barrier.

    Interestingly four of the top 5 points scorers for Night of Champions wound up in the bottom five scorers for this show.

    The average score for Raw this week was 17 points.



    Now let's see what all this means for our league table...




    Gameweek 13 Standings (Post-Raw)


    1. Cheese Wagstaff................................................................345 points

    2. Bounty Hunter....................................................................340 points

    3. Mr.Nice Guy......................................................................338 points

    4. A Brad Maddox Guy............................................................333 points

    5. DM_7...............................................................................313 points

    6. LeeJM...............................................................................304 points

    7. linvoysblues......................................................................296 points

    8. Scavenger XIII..................................................................282 points

    9. Stereomaniac....................................................................277 points

    10. beakerjoe........................................................................260 points

    11. Hashtag_Heel...................................................................231 points

    12. thebostoncrab..................................................................219 points

    13. Zemuppet........................................................................205 points




    League Fallout



    Fair play to Cheese Wagstaff who remains in control at the top of the table, but the most eye-catching development concerns second place as Bounty Hunter muscles yours truly out of the way to become the nearest challenger. With only five points separating first and second, might we have a brand new leader by the end of the week?

    Elsewhere, LeeJM proves another climber as he moves up one place to sixth position.

    Raw results

    Neville and the Lucha Dragons defeated Stardust and The Ascension

    Ryback defeated Bo Dallas

    Charlotte defeated Brie Bella

    Sheamus defeated Mark Henry

    Big E, Kofi and Rusev defeated The Dudley Boyz and Dolph Ziggler

    Naomi defeated Natalya

    Big Show defeated Cesaro

    John Cena defeated Seth Rollins


    170px-Paige_WWE_Divas_Champion.jpg


    Looks like Paige will be in the mix in the battle for Charlotte's title. Might she be worth getting in for next week?

    Elsewhere Cena continues to look strong, whilst poor Cesaro is having a tough time of things. As for the bottom tier guys, hard to know whether it's best to go with The Ascension or the Lucha Dragons, or perhaps even Bo Dallas?



    New players

    That's it for now. On to Smackdown to wrap up the week...


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,552 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    275px-New_WWE_SmackDown_Logo_2015.png



    With Smackdown done and dusted that brings us to the end of this triple-show week and it has certainly been a week that has seen significant changes. Those changes continued as a result of Smackdown and there has been a dramatic development at the top of our table. Before we get to that, let's first see how everyone fared on this show. Read on for more...



    *Note - Smackdown spoilers below. Do not read further if you do not want news of Smackdown.*

    Smackdown Fallout


    Hats off to Scavenger XIII who earns the highest score for Smackdown with wins for Ambrose, Reigns, and Cesaro helping him secure his 14 points.

    The average score for Smackdown this week was 9.5 pts.



    Now to discover what that means for our league table as we close out the week...



    Gameweek 13 Standings


    1. Bounty Hunter....................................................................353 points

    12. Zemuppet........................................................................213 points



    League Fallout



    There's no doubt what the big story is here and that is at the top where Bounty Hunter goes joint-top alongside Cheese Wagstaff. Bounty Hunter has been on a great run of form and becomes the fourth player to experience being in that number one position. Which player will have cemented top spot by the end of next week?



    ****Rules note****


    This week's top of the table situation made me realise I never explained what would happen in the event that the game ends with two players tied at the top.

    Normally when players have been tied I have put the player that comes first alphabetically on top, but clearly this would not be a good way to determine the contest winner.

    So then, in the event that there is a tie when the last week is completed, top spot shall be determined by the player with the best overall average position throughout the game.

    (Some of you may recall I used this system back in Gameweek #7 when I needed to determine seedings for the Cup, and Stereomaniac and thebostoncrab happened to be tied)

    Let's hope it doesn't come to that though. I think we all want there to be a decisive winner when the game wraps up. Until we get to the final stage, I'll just continue putting the person that comes first alphabetically on top because I don't think it really matters at this point.

    Smackdown results

    Roman Reigns defeated Luke Harper

    The New Day defeated Neville and the Lucha Dragons

    Cesaro defeated Bo Dallas

    Ryback and Dolph Ziggler defeated Rusev and Kevin Owens

    Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins

    290px-WWE%27s_The_New_Day_Jan_2015.jpg



    The New Day continue to look strong. Cesaro gets a win under his belt but I'm not sure what they're doing with him right now.

    Ziggler's been pulling off a decent amount of wins lately it seems. Is he worth snapping up?




    On to Gameweek #14 (Fantasy Cup Quarter-Finals 1st Leg)...


    220px-1928_Sam_Maguire_cup%2C_GAA_museum.jpg


    Yes, it's that time again! This week, 8 lucky players will face off in the first leg of the Fantasy Cup quarter-finals (the second leg will be on Gameweek #16).

    Here is a reminder of the ties that we have in store:


    PW Boards Fantasy Cup Quarter-Finals (1st Leg)



    Quarter-Final 1

    LeeJM vs Scavenger XIII


    Quarter-Final 2

    linvoysblues vs Cheese Wagstaff


    Quarter-Final 3

    beakerjoe vs DM_7


    Quarter-Final 4

    A Brad Maddox Guy vs Stereomaniac



    Winner of Quarter-Final 1 plays Winner of Quarter-Final 4
    Winner of Quarter-Final 2 plays Winner of Quarter-Final 3


    Best of luck to each player and choose your squads wisely. A strong score for the first leg could leave you with one foot in the semi-finals.



    Deadline



    The deadline for everyone will be before the commencement of Monday Night Raw, so you have all weekend plus Monday to make transfers and/or submit your squad.


    Transfers and Captaincy



    You can make up to 3 transfers to your squad each week, if you wish. These must be from the same tier. For example, a top tier guy for a top tier guy; a mid-tier guy for a mid-tier guy.

    Please outline who you are transferring out and transferring in when posting your squads to make it easier for me to follow.

    And don't forget to choose a captain who will score you double points.


    New players



    Entry to the Cup is limited to these 8 players but anyone who wishes to play along in the league is welcome to do so. Just post up a seven-person squad and we will allocate you points level with the lowest scorer and you can work your way up the leaderboard.


    Good luck



    With that being said, I now declare Gameweek #14 to be open. Which performers will you be lumping on this week?

    I think that sounds like a good idea. What does Mr. Nice Guy say about that, will it count too?

    If it does count Ill me re adjusting my changes.

    No, the MSG special won't be factored into the weekly tally.

    I may count future special shows if there's an interest in that, but for this week it will be just Raw and Smackdown.

    So I guess John Cena just won that match by disqualification. I was relieved when Xavier Woods took the challenge because I have the other 2 members of The New Day in my squad. Hopefully when we come back from ad break now there'll be a 6 man tag underway so more points can be gained from 3 of my squad. I've found Kofi Kingston to be a pretty good choice as captain as The New Day seem to do something every week and it's usually Xavier left outside.
