Title: Power Rankings
Post by: RyPrax on 25 February 2010, 04:28:02 AM
Hey guys,

I remember a while ago we were talking about doing our own power 25 like WWE does... I know the problem was that it might be too ambitious to get done but I'd really like to try and take a stab at it. Maybe a power 10 or 15 instead of a power 25 (we'd call it Mayhem 15 or whatever).

The way it would work in my head is that the 4 staff members (Dale, Awe, Russ and myself) would make a list of their 10 or 15 wrestlers of the week, with #1 getting 15 points all the way to #15, who would receive one point.

On top of these 4 staff members, 2 or 3 regular members would make their own list that would count for just as much. They would be chosen at random or based maybe on activity and would rotate every few weeks.

Finally, in order to remove some bias that we might have against some guys, certain points would be predetermined. For instance each champion would automatically be given a certain amount of points (i.e. 20 for world champions, 10 for IC/US and 10 for Tag, or something like that), maybe 10 points for a match win and 5 points for an appearance.

All this will be tallied by me and posted on Monday before Raw.

Might sound a little complicated, if it is, I'd love to hear your opinions on what you think about this and whether you'd be interested.

always loved the idea and it sound simple enough for me. though honestly it will be less fun not getting to vote every week.

So all the staff (and select members) would have to do is list their top 10 wrestlers of the week/month (whatever you go with)?

Sounds pretty good, one question, would they get 5 points for making an appearance, as well as 10 points for a match?

Hmm I didn't think that through haha. Is 5 points per segment they're in too much? Like if Cena has a ring promo, a backstage promo and a match it would be 5 + 5 + 10 points. Personally I think that's fair considering we could have like Santino just hanging out with the guest host backstage once and he has 5 points...

Basically, and get them to me by monday at some point. I'll distribute points and tally the results.

I understand, but the more people voting the more complicated it gets. I guess if we have 3 different members going a week everyone should get to go every second week probably (maybe every 3rd week depending on activity).

I guess it'd probably depend how many people want to do it really. Like you suggested having all the staff do it - personally, I wouldn't want to do it. Mainly because I don't think I'd be able to come up with 10-15 people of the week, I'd probably only be able to think of 3 maximum most of the time.

Out of the 30-40 wrestlers who appear on WWE TV every week, you wouldn't be able to rank the top 10? :P

I doubt he would do TNA seen as though doesn't watch it. Not sure how many people on here actually watch it, I would guess just me, you, Caz and Gorsty

Nah I think it would be too complicated to do TNA, but if you want to do a separate one for TNA be my guest. NXT guys will definitely be involved.

I think I can get this started this weekend TBH.

Exactly ;)

Seriously though, I obviously know if I like a match/segment or not, but I wouldn't really say I pay close enough attention to rank people.

I won't sit on the panel for a while, I've got a ton of work to do for university, count me in after Easter though.

Should we just all make a list of 10 for this past week and PM it to you prax or post it here or what?

Post by: RyPrax on 27 February 2010, 09:04:38 PM
I want to think about how I'm gonna go about this a little more, so I think we'll start next week. Considering people are still a little skeptical, I think it would be best if we just let who ever wanted to participate post a list for now.

That being said, I want to start fresh with next week's shows. Maybe even post the rankings as we go along  in the week (i.e. after RAW, after NXT and after SD before everyone posts their rankings).
