The 2013-2014 Wrestleview Staff Predictions changes

Due to our schedules and because we kept the same format for the past four years, I feel that it is about time we change a few things up. So, here they are:

1) ROH iPPVs WILL count next season (but only a few of them).

One of the things that we all mainly agreed on four years ago is that in order for a PPV to count in our standings a company must have a Weekly TV deal in the United States that covers a vast area in the country. Ring of Honor Wrestling meets the criteria, but we will only count six of their iPPVs. The list will be featured in a bit.

2) We will be using a Points System.

This will make it easier and many other sites now use a points system. It will be easy. I will award TWO points for a championship predicted correctly, and ONE point for a non-title matches predicted correctly.

3) Next Season will end later…at WrestleMania XXX!

Due to popular demand, we listened and will invoke a new law that all season from here on out starting with Season #5 will end at Wrestlemania. So next season will go from Elimination Chamber 2013 – WrestleMania XXX.

4) Don’t worry, we will have separate readers standings.

This will be the only non-change. This is for the readers so they can be a part of the predictions process as well. The readers of the week next season still have the same rules. One must outright defeat the defending Reader of the Week to get theirs posted in a future article. One can’t tie with them. If a Reader of the Week goes undefeated (or accumulates the most possible points) in a PPV, they automatically retain their position.

Next season, we feel, will be easier for all readers to participate in if they choose. And have fun with it! Don’t take it seriously!

And Now, the Predictions for WWE Elimination Chamber

(Note: If you see an “N/A”, then they either did not complete their picks or they sent them to me after publication.)

Nick G. – FAT DUDES.

Mr. V – BRODUS CLAY AND TENSAI.

Greg M. – BRODUS CLAY & TENSAI; Rhodes & Sandow are officially done as a team, so there's no harm in their "focus on individual pursuits" costing them this completely meaningless match.

Josh B. – CLAY AND TENSAI.

Darragh O. – BRODUS CLAY AND TENSAI.

Matt O. – BRODUS AND TENSAI.

Jason N. – THE HIP-HOP HIPPOS.

Mike T. – N/A.

Clinton B. – N/A.

Coire M. – BRODUS CLAY AND TENSAI.

Gary H. – BRODUS CLAY AND TENSAI.

Jordan B. – N/A.

CONSENSUS: BRODUS AND CLAY 10-0.


Dave S. – RYBACK, JOHN CENA, AND SHEAMUS.

Nick G. – THE SHIELD.

Mr. V – RYBACK, JOHN CENA, AND SHEAMUS.

Greg M. – RYBACK, JOHN CENA, and SHEAMUS; It's been fun, kids, but time to get back to reality.

Josh B. – CENA, SHEAMUS, AND RYBACK

Darragh O. – THE SHIELD.

CONSENSUS: RYBACK, CENA, AND SHEAMUS 6-4.


Dave S. – RANDY ORTON.

Nick G. – HENRY.

Mr. V – CHRIS JERICHO.

Greg M. – MARK HENRY; With the WHC match so predictable, this one loses a lot of steam. Henry is the only guy in here that I can see facing Del Rio at Wrestlemania. I'm looking forward to that as a match, but boy, oh boy, does this feel like a waste of time.

Josh B. –HENRY.

Darragh O. – RANDY ORTON.

Matt O. – MARK HENRY.

Jason N. – MARK HENRY.

Gary H. – RANDY ORTON.

Jordan B. – N/A.

CONSENSUS: HENRY will be the predicted winner for five staff members. Three picked Orton and one staff member picked Jericho and Swagger respectfully. No one chose Kane or Daniel Bryan.

Matt O. – CESARO.

Jason N. – ANTONIO CESARO.

Mike T. – N/A.

Clinton B. – N/A.
