It's clear that The Bash has rattled a few cages, as several of the results and goings-on were out of the ordinary.
Edge and Chris Jericho managed to weasel their way to tag team gold, and Legacy played the numbers game to ensure Triple H didn't take Randy Orton's WWE Championship.
There has been some inquiry into how some of these matches will be assessed, so I will clear the air on those now.
The tag match has to be disregarded. Edge and Jericho were not billed to be in the match, hence their victory was nigh on impossible to predict.
I took some flak for not mentioning that The Great Khali vs. Dolph Ziggler was a no disqualification match, but when I posted the competition this stipulation had not been announced. Therefore, I feel the result for that match should count.
The majority of matches, though, took place as planned. Fifty-six of you took part in this competition, with varied success, but who came out on top? Let’s get to the results:
Joint 55th – 0 points
54th – 2 points
53rd – 3 points
Joint 50th – 4 points
xxValentinoxx Aka Rashad
Joint 47th – 5 points
Joint 39th – 6 points
Joint 35th – 7 points
Joint 29th – 8 points
Joint 21st – 9 points
Joint 15th – 10 points
Joint 7th – 11 points
Jeff D Gorman
Foley Is God
Joint 5th – 12 points
Joint 3rd – 13 points
Joint 1st – 14 points
With a possible maximum total of 16 (with the tag match discounted) 14 is a pretty impressive score, so congratulations to both Scott and Frank.
On a side note, I would like to make some things clear for subsequent competitions:
Anyone playing must try and guess who will win any particular match at a PPV. Not who will have the title, not who will turn heel, or who will interfere, just who will win the match.
It gets very confusing reading through some people's predictions when their picks are cryptic like this. I don’t mind a little insight into the matches, but, at the end, please state for who you are backing.
Also, remember that you are voting on the whole show. It frustrates me when I get picks for only a few matches, especially when the participant does well.
I thank you all for your continued support, and hope to hear from you again come Night of Champions.
