THE WWE FANTASY GAME: WEEK 6 - THE REVIEW
THE CURRENT WWI FANTASY LEAGUE TOP 10!
01: A Team They Call Swish - 1682 pts
02: Millennium Men - 1674 pts
03: AJ Styles - 1669 pts
04: DJ MegaHertz - 1665 pts
05: Torch Wood - 1641 pts
06: ReturnOfTheNewBlack - 1619 pts
07: SuperJiggy - 1618 pts
08: CMPunk4Life - 1576 pts
09: Lionheart - 1512 pts
10: I've GOT 2 WORDS 4 U!!!!! - 1467 pts
The top 10 is pretty much as is, with only “Millennium Men” and “AJ Styles” swapping places and “I've GOT 2 WORDS 4 U!!!!!” creeping in, replacing “ChristianCoalition”. However, props should go to “Trace’s Peeps” who were this week’s biggest point scorers, landing a large 283 points for the week.
However, sadly, not one of the teams in the WWI remain in the top 100 teams overall this week, with our closest effort coming from “A Team They Call Swish”, who are in 103rd.
This Week's MVP (that isn't necessarily Montel Vontavious Porter...)
There is only ONE person this week who could possibly be considered for this accolade, and that is Bobby Lashley, as he scored a probably record-breaking 111 points in this week alone! That was entirely due to defending the ECW twice in matches with screwy stipulations, which meant speciality points as well. Also, having gotten his hands on a chair during his ECW match helped him rack up a ton of weapons points.
Just to put it into perspective, 3 week ago, John Cena and Shawn Michaels scored 85 points, and they appeared and wrestled on RAW, Smackdown and at No Way Out. Lashley only wrestled twice and appeared on RAW, and he scored 30 points more.
Bust Of The Week
Once again, if you put money into the Wrestlemania Main Event, then you got shafted big time, as Batista & Undertaker only got 3 appearance points for their opening segment last week, and that was it. Thank the lord that they are wrestling this coming week. You might just get some return this week…
Dark Horse Of The Week
A bit of a tough one this week, as no-one all that cheap excelled. However, I will go with Ken Kennedy here, as thanks to his “speciality” MITB qualifier on ECW and his ECW Title match, again with speciality points, he scored 44 points for your $4 million investment, which is a really good return in anyone’s language.
THE WWE FANTASY GAME: WEEK 2 - THE PREVIEW
Well, blow me, but have the WWE ever revealed their hand this week? Oddly, we have just about a full card on RAW and TWO matches announced for Smackdown.
First off, on RAW, after taking a page from Eddie Guerrero’s book by smacking Edge in the head with a title belt and passing the blame on to Randy Orton, the Rockers Of Thuganomics will be taking on Rated RKO in singles action this week. Cena will be “re-visiting” his last year, as he’ll be taking on Edge, while Randy Orton will take on Shawn Michaels. This could go either way, but I find it surprising these matches are happening, for reason I will discuss later.
And now that you’re back from scrolling down to see the continuation of the previous point, also announced for this week’s RAW, Mickie James will be taking on Melina in a Falls Count Anywhere match as a rematch for the Women’s Title. To be honest, I can’t see them taking the belt off of Melina at this point, since Melina vs. Ashley seems like a lock for the big show, but you never know. It mightn’t be for the title. However, the Falls Count Anywhere stipulation, I expect some sort of heel shenanigans, possibly from Nitro, to keep the belt on her. Either way one of both ladies should be good for a couple of weapon points.
Over on ECW, nothing has been announced yet, but while we’re hear, I think it’s absolutely safe to expect Bobby Lashley to be all over this week’s TV again, although with the focus being the guest referee, I wouldn’t exactly expect the same sort of points haul.
Meanwhile, the ECW preview is the one that talks about Money In The Bank, asking if an ECW superstar will get the chance, like CM Punk and Sabu have already, to get in. This would lead me to believe that to help sell this week’s show, come Tuesday morning, it will be announced that the final MITB spot will be up for grabs in this show. Now personally, I think that Randy Orton should be a lock for this final spot, which means that I, for one, will be having Orton in my team this week. Either way, I suspect that it will be too little, too late by the time they announce the match and who will be in it, if they do that at all, unless you are so psychic that you managed to pick the participants (assuming there’s only 2 or 3…).
Than again, this is the preview that last week wondered about what La Resistance would do next, and not only were they not on the show, they are, right now, not even on the roster page!
Also, I would expect some deal with the New Breed & the Originals, but at this point, they’re only really good for “if you have a spare couple of millions”, since we have no idea who is wrestling in a particular week. Personally, if I wasn’t so sure Orton was going to be the last guy in the Money In The Bank, I’d have had an Originals/new Breed match for the spot, with RVD getting in (I know he already lost one, but go with me here), which allow even up the sides for an 8 man match at Mania.
As it stands, Smackdown has taken a nearly unprecedented step of announcing TWO matches for the coming week, with the Wrestlemania Main Event both actually wrestling matches. Undertaker will be taking on Finlay, while Batista will be taking on Kane. If I had to put money on it, Undertaker will likely go over pretty clean, while I fancy Kane to win, via Khali interference, causing the DQ. Neither of the title match competitors will lose clean though, that’s for damn sure.
I have a feeling we’re going to start building towards a Benoit/MVP program, so I imagine one or the other will wrestle, although Porter is probably the better pick as he’s more likely to promo and wrestle.
With that in mind, that’s all I got for this week’s picking and choosing, but I’ll be back with the week’s dose of ECW Now, isn’t it funny how people are seeing the current US and UK political climate as rather Xenophobic, given their stances on immigrants. I mean, Xenophobia is a Greek word, and you’d think they’d have nothing to do with that foreign rubbish…
PLAY ME OFF JOHNNY!
