1; Get into Grad School

2; Become better at playing Tabletop, both as a player and as a GM/ST/W/E

3; Get rid of this goddamn avatar.

So before we get into this I kind of want to admit something.

I haven't really watched any wrestling in like maybe 4 months. It's just kind of lost it's appeal to me, and I think you guys can see it in the questions; they're pretty flat and boring now, aren't really going into the details of the feuds or anything like that. I mean I imagine some of you guys had already figured it out.

So I don't know if I'm gonna run this next year. I can if no one wants to take it up, but the questions will be mostly pretty generic, as they are; I'm in grad school too now, so, it's pretty hard to have time to do this sometimes.

I'm not just gonna quit now, of course. I'll at least see this season through, and maybe I'll reinvigorate myself watching the Rumble Sunday, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, uh...This weeks' game and scores.

Somehow, even more irritating than I look.

This will be my first deliberately watched PPV as a newish wrestling fan, so if you're feeling bad at home, hey, at least my predictions are gonna be worse than yours.

I can't wait for Roman Reigns to clean house in the rumble and eliminate literally everyone.

STOP DOING HEROIN

I'm banking on Roman going wire-to-wire and seemingly winning, only for HHH to come out at #31 and win because that seems like the most HHH thing to do.

Looking professional when committing genocide is essential. This is mostly achieved by using a beret.

Olive drab colour ensures the genocider will remain hidden from his prey until it's too late for them to do anything.

Haha, I haven't watched any wrestling since I pretty much started playing this. If guys running the game and topping it aren't watching, it kinds of speaks volumes for how bad the product is right now. Pretty sure I'll be basement dwelling from this one as this is the first I've heard of any matches that aren't Ambrose/Owens.

I'm not the one they'll try their luck with
Hit hard like brass knuckles
See your face through the turnbuckle dude
I got no love for you


I haven't watched anything but PPVs for about 6 months now, but I still play the prediction game and listen to reviews of every single Raw

I'm in. Done so poorly this season so far, I'm changing tactic and going with picking terrible things I fear they'll go with, rather than what makes the most logical sense, or what I want to happen. I hope I'm very wrong.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.

Likewise, but reading instead of listening. I have so much time for other things now, it's great!

Bad predictions are in.

This has become almost my entire strategy, especially since I fell too far in the rankings to win.

I feel like I'm still in the top ten by virtue of putting in my picks every time, not because I've picked right very often.

I haven't watched WWE in like a month so I'm sure I'll do great here
