    Just thought of this now, but it's 31st December 2016, a weird-ass year is in the books, and with the new year, comes a game of predictions, here are the rules.

    Game 1: Championship Challenge.
    1. I am going to make a list of every belt in WWE and NXT as well as the Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank (Not including the UK title, as no one knows anybody in the division.)
    2. You can name as many people as you want for each championship
    3. For each person you correctly predict you will be awarded 5pts
    4. However, to deter people from just naming the entire roster, you will lose 2pts for each person who does NOT win the championship you have listed.
    5. In the Tag Team divisions, you may pick singles competitors, and if their team wins the titles, you will be awarded 2pts, if two of them win, you will be awarded 2 pts for each member (so, if you have Baron Corbin and Kane listed, and they win together, you get 4pts, however, if you list "Baron Corbin & Kane" as a team, you'll get the full 5pts)
    6. You do not get points for the current champions, they would have to lose, and then regain the championships for the points to be counted.
    7. You only get the points for each correct guess, number of reigns do not matter, so if you pick Roman Reigns to win the Universal Championship, and he wins it twice, you don't get another 5 points.
    8. If your guy wins the Royal Rumble, you will be awarded 10pts.
    So, to clarify, the points breakdown is as follows:
    • Correct pick = 5pts
    • Single pick for Tag Team Championship = 2pts
    • Incorrect pick = -2pts
    • Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank Winner = 10pts
    Game 2: General Predictions:
    1. You make 5 General Predictions for the year, and for each correct prediction, you will be awarded a further 10 points.
    2. To deter people from just saying "Nakamura, Samoa Joe, Asuka etc. Will be called up", NXT call ups will not be counted as predictions
    3. Championship predictions won't be counted either, as that defeats the purpose of Game 1.
    4. Actually be specific, shit like "Someone's gonna turn heel" and "This guy will win a match this year" isn't going to be counted either.
    No Rush to enter, I'll give you until Sunday15th January at 12.01am British Time. I'll put the Game Card below.

    So I can make predictions until Dec 15th? Seems like an easy way to get a lot right.

    This is what happens when you let people who speak English instead of proper American make the threads...however...since I'm still on vacation and feeling lazy...I'll allow it.

    Yeah, the reason I made it 12.01 is because it takes away any ambiguity where some would think it's the 14th, others think it's the 15th.

    And it would be 7pm on the Saturday.
