    Raw is done for the week and that means it's time to check how the night's action affected our current standings.

    I'll begin this update with the highest scores from Raw and then go on to highlight where it has left our league table. Read on for more...


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


    Monday Night Raw scores




    daithi1989.........................15 pts
    paulie21............................10 pts
    beakerjoe...........................7 pts
    Kankan14...........................7 pts
    A Brad Maddox Guy..............6 pts
    Mr.Nice Guy.........................6 pts
    WinnyThePoo.......................6 pts
    Cheese Wagstaff...................5 pts
    LeeJM.................................4 pts
    Bounty Hunter.......................1 pt
    DM_7..................................1 pt





    Raw Fallout

    The highest score for Raw this week goes to daithi1989 whose decision to stick the captaincy on Big Cass paid off in style; he also had a win from Nia Jax and an appearance point from Jinder Mahal which resulted in the big score.

    paulie21 also had a good night with wins for Luke Gallows and Roman Reigns getting the bulk of his points.

    The average score for Raw was 6 points.


    Now let's see what these scores meant for our overall league table...




    Gameweek 2 Standings (Post-Raw)


    1. paulie21..........................................................................37 points

    2. daithi1989........................................................................34 points

    3. Bounty Hunter..................................................................30 points

    4. Kankan14........................................................................28 points

    = WinnyThePoo....................................................................28 points

    5. beakerjoe........................................................................26 points

    = Cheese Wagstaff................................................................26 points

    6. DM_7..............................................................................25 points

    7 LeeJM..............................................................................24 points

    8. Mr.Nice Guy......................................................................23 points

    9. A Brad Maddox Guy...........................................................22 points




    League Fallout

    While we await Smackdown's results, for now it is paulie21 that takes possession of top position, with daithi1989 not far behind.

    The bottom two positions remain unchanged.

    Speaking of the bottom of the table, I'm thinking if we remain on the current number of players then I will make it 3 players at the bottom eliminated on the final week of the contest, rather than the 4 I had originally stated. It depends on whether we can add an extra player in the weeks ahead but I feel finishing with 8 players and the lowest ones being eliminated is the neatest way to do it.

    Raw results

    Sami Zayn defeated Sheamus.

    Kofi and Xavier Woods defeated The Dudley Boyz.

    Nia Jax defeated Rachel Levy.

    Big Cass defeated Kevin Owens via D.Q.

    The Shining Stars defeated The Prime Time Players.

    Neville defeated Jinder Mahal.

    Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson defeated The Golden Truth.

    Charlotte defeated Alicia Fox.

    Roman Reigns defeated Rusev.

    170px-Primo_WWE.jpg


    Who would have thought Epico and Primo (above) would pick up a win on Raw? Does that make them an enticing choice as a Lower Tier pick? Or was it just a one-off result?


    Want to join in?

    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome. There is a very popular Cup contest starting in two weeks that runs alongside the league where players will take on one another in matches, so now is a great time to sign up and secure a spot. To sign up just submit a squad and you're in.


    That concludes the Raw update. Now to check out Smackdown Live...


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,698 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    1pt :D

    thats what happens when you forget to change your line-up! Woulda swapped Braun for Nia most likely and given her my captaincy (don't think they want to have two such similar squashes in one show so are taking turns atm) but meh 2 show week next week to catch up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    250px-WWE_SmackDown_Live_2016_logo.png


    Smackdown Live has come and gone and that means it's time to check out how things look at the end of Week 2.

    Below I will post the highest scores for Smackdown and then reveal the overall standings. I will also post details on the bonus points which will be on offer for our first PPV of the game, Summerslam. Read on...

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


    Smackdown Live scores



    A Brad Maddox Guy..............14 pts
    DM_7.................................11 pts
    Bounty Hunter......................10 pts
    paulie21..............................8 pts
    WinnyThePoo........................8 pts
    LeeJM..................................7 pts
    Cheese Wagstaff....................5 pts
    Mr.Nice Guy...........................5 pts
    beakerjoe..............................1 pt
    Kankan14...............................1 pt
    daithi1989..............................0 pts



    Smackdown Fallout

    A Brad Maddox Guy picks up the biggest score from Smackdown. Wins for his captain Chad Gable and Dean Ambrose got him the score.

    DM_7 got the next best score with Zack Ryder proving the only Lower Tier name chosen this week to score points; Jason Jordan also did well for his team.

    The average for Smackdown was 6 points.



    Now let's see where we stand at the end of the second week...


    Gameweek 2 Standings


    1. paulie21..........................................................................45 points

    2. Bounty Hunter..................................................................40 points

    3. A Brad Maddox Guy...........................................................36 points

    = DM_7..............................................................................36 points

    = WinnyThePoo....................................................................36 points

    4. daithi1989........................................................................34 points

    5. Cheese Wagstaff................................................................31 points

    = LeeJM..............................................................................31 points

    6. Kankan14.........................................................................29 points

    7. Mr.Nice Guy......................................................................28 points

    8. beakerjoe........................................................................27 points





    League Fallout

    It's a role reversal from the way things looked last week as paulie21 takes over top spot; Bounty Hunter is in second place only a few points off the lead.

    A Brad Maddox Guy has had the most dramatic change of fortune as he goes from bottom position following Raw to third place.

    Smackdown results

    American Alpha, The Usos and The Hype Bros defeated Breezango, The Vaudevillains and The Ascension.

    Eva Marie vs Naomi ended in a No Contest.

    Heath Slater defeated Randy Orton via D.Q.

    Dean Ambrose defeated Erick Rowan.

    Becky Lynch and Carmella defeated Natalya and Alexa Bliss.

    John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio.


    250px-The_Usos_2014.jpg


    The Usos were a popular pick last year but this year no one has gone for them. Will their win make them worthy of consideration again?


    On to Gameweek #3 (PPV Week)...




    *****Summerslam PPV Bonus Pts*****


    220px-SummerSlam_2016.jpg

    It's the first WWE PPV of this year's contest - Summerslam - and like last year's game we will be offering you bonus points from the event.

    This year I'm calling it our Brocky Bonus and it works like this: simply predict the result of the Brock Lesnar match vs Randy Orton and if your prediction is correct, you will pick up an extra 4 points.

    Do you think Brock will win, lose of draw? Let me know your thoughts when you pick your squad for the week. It should look a bit like this:
    MAIN EVENT TIER - X
    MAIN EVENT TIER - X
    MAIN EVENT TIER - X

    UPPER TIER - X
    UPPER TIER - X
    UPPER TIER - X

    LOWER TIER - X

    Your captain: X

    SUMMERSLAM BONUS: Brock Lesnar will __________ his match with Randy Orton.


    I hope that's easy to understand. Any questions feel free to ask away.


    Deadline


    As it's a PPV week the deadline this time will be before the first pre-show match of Summerslam on Sunday, August 21st.


    Transfers and Captaincy

    You can make up to 2 transfers to your squad if you wish. These must be from the same tier. For example, a Main Event Tier performer for a Main Event Tier performer; an Upper Tier performer for an Upper Tier performer.

    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.



    Cup Competition


    A reminder that the Cup starts in Gameweek 4; like last year the seedings in the Cup will be based on the league - top 3 will be top seeds, next top 3 the 2nd seeds etc.

    I would love an extra player to join the competition to bring us to an even number of twelve so if anyone's reading who is not involved, sign up now and get a place.


    Want to join in?

    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome. The aforementioned Cup game will see players take on one another in matches, so now is a great time to get involved. To sign up simply pick a squad and you're in.


    Good luck for the week ahead, folks. Gameweek #3 is now open for business.

    Welcome to the game. Glad to have you on board as it means in the Cup game we will now have an even number of teams which makes things easier.

    I will still accept new players though if anyone is reading and interested in participating.

    Final reminder to players that the deadline for tonight is before the first pre-show match of the PPV.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,210 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    No roster changes, just a captain change

    Jason Jordan
    Chris Jericho
    Rusev


    Zack Ryder

    Captain: Zack Ryder

    Brock to win


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭A Brad Maddox Guy


    Didn't realise this show was starting so early. Guess I'm stuck with the current lineup then, Lets Go Balor! *clap clap clap clap clap*

    Main Event
    Finn Balor
    Dean Ambrose
    Nia Jax

    Upper Tier
    Chris Jericho
    Sheamus
    Chad Gable

    Lower Tier
    Titus O'Neil

    Captain - Chad Gable

    (Brock to win btw, assuming I can still enter that since it's hours away yet)


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I was surprised the show started so soon myself. It is now under way which means I won't be accepting any more transfers. All players did submit teams for this week except for WinnyThePoo but if he wants to give a prediction for the Brock Lesnar bonus match I will accept that, providing it's in before the match starts.

    Here are the popular trends for this PPV week:
    Popular trends - G.W. 3



    Most popular Main Event Tier picks


    1. Finn Balor 6

    2. Dean Ambrose 5

    = Sasha Banks 5

    = Seth Rollins 5






    Most popular Upper Tier picks


    1. Chad Gable 5

    = Rusev 5

    2. Braun Strowman / Chris Jericho / Neville 4






    Most popular Lower Tier picks


    1. Darren Young 2

    = Naomi 2

    = Titus O'Neil 2

    = Zack Ryder 2

    2. Others 1


    Quite a lot of variety in the rosters it would seem. That should make for an exciting week.

    As regards the Brocky Bonus, 9 of you have backed the Beast to prevail in his match, with 2 of you backing the Viper.

    Good luck to all players. I hope to have the Summerslam update posted up on Monday evening.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    220px-SummerSlam_2016.jpg


    The first of three shows this week has come and gone, Summerslam, and that means it's time to check out where we stand following the event. There were plenty of points on offer including four bonus points for those that could successfully predict the outcome of the main event (9 of you secured the bonus points by getting your prediction correct).

    Below I will reveal the scores for Summerslam and then show where that leaves our overall standings. Read on for more...



    *Warning - Summerslam spoilers lie below. Do not read further if you do not want the results from the show.*



    Summerslam scores (bonus points included where necessary)

    Summerslam Fallout

    I should point out firstly that the Reigns vs Rusev match caused a bit of a headache for me as I didn't quite know how to score it. I went to the WWE website which says and I quote: "The United States Championship Match did not take place after Roman Reigns rendered Rusev unable to compete."

    With that being the case I decided I couldn't award appearance points for this match since I said in the rules that wrestlers have to be in a match in order to get the appearance points. Hope everyone understands. (If it's any consolation I had Reigns myself so I'm getting nothing from him either).

    Anyways it is DM_7 who has the best night as 5 members of his team picked up wins, including his captain and Lower Tier pick, Zack Ryder.

    Not far behind were A Brad Maddox Guy, and our newest entrant Gaw who starts off the game in style.

    The average score for Summerslam was 23 points.



    And now let's see what the scores meant for our league table...



    Gameweek 3 Standings (Post-PPV)


    1. paulie21.......................................................................73 points

    2. DM_7...........................................................................71 points

    3. Bounty Hunter................................................................70 points

    4. A Brad Maddox Guy.........................................................68 points

    5. Cheese Wagstaff.............................................................59 points

    6. daithi1989.....................................................................52 points

    7. LeeJM...........................................................................51 points

    8. Mr.Nice Guy...................................................................48 points

    9. Kankan14......................................................................42 points

    10. beakerjoe....................................................................34 points

    11. Gaw_..........................................................................32 points



    League Fallout

    It's getting pretty exciting at the top as paulie21 holds on to first place, with several players breathing down his neck. Who will be number one after Raw?

    Another interesting story concerns the arrival of Gaw whose big haul from Summerslam puts him very much in the mix already.

    Summerslam results

    The Usos, American Alpha & The Hype Bros defeated Breezango, The Vaudevillains & The Ascension.

    Sami Zayn & Neville defeated The Dudley Boyz.

    Sheamus defeated Cesaro.

    Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens defeated Enzo Amore & Big Cass.

    Charlotte defeated Sasha Banks.

    The Miz defeated Apollo Crews.

    AJ Styles defeated John Cena.

    Gallows & Anderson defeated The New Day via disqualification.

    Dean Ambrose defeated Dolph Ziggler.

    Nikki Bella, Natalya & Alexa Bliss defeated Becky Lynch, Naomi & Carmella.

    Finn Bálor defeated Seth Rollins.

    The United States Championship Match did not take place after Roman Reigns rendered Rusev unable to compete.

    Brock Lesnar defeated Randy Orton via TKO.

    220px-Nikki_Bella_live_event_April_2015.jpg


    Nikki Bella is back so I'll look to make her available for selection when this week concludes. She'll be in the Main Event tier.


    Want to join in?

    The game may be under way but new players are always welcome. There is a very popular Cup contest starting next week that runs alongside the league where players will take on one another in matches, so now is a great time to sign up and secure a spot. To sign up simply pick a squad and you're in.


    That ends the Summerslam update. Over now to Raw to see what the show does for our leaderboard...
