    Default CBR's Wrestling Fantasy League - August Picks (Deadline 7/31)

    Welcome to CBR's Wrestling Fantasy League (WFL).

    How the WFL works:

    You pick 10 wrestlers/wrestling personalities. Your picks are in place once the month starts. Picks are not locked up if someone else picks them before you. I will be playing as well, though I can not win the prize.

    During the month, I will be scoring points for WWE RAWs, Smackdowns, and PPVs. For the month of August, there are 4 RAWs, 5 Smackdowns, and 1 PPV (Summer Slam 08/19) for 10 total scheduled events.

    Picks can be made/edited until 7/31/12 11:59 PM (PST).

    The person with the highest total at end of the month wins their choice of a wrestling related digital sketch from me.

    How the points are awarded:

    Television live appearance (+3)
    Television featured promo (+2)
    Television featured fight (+2)
    Television match involvement (+2)
    Television match (+5)
    Television win (+7)
    Television loss (-2)

    All Shows: Get a pin/submission (+1)
    All Shows: Get pinned/submitted (-1)
    All Shows: Win a battle royal type match (+5)
    All Shows: Win a Championship (+20)
    All Shows: Retain a Championship (+8)
    All Shows: Lose a Championship (-20)

    PPV live appearance (+5)
    PPV featured promo (+3)
    PPV featured fight (+4)
    PPV match involvement (+4)
    PPV match (+8)
    PPV win (+12)
    PPV loss (-6)

    PPV pre-show [youtube, wwe.com, etc.] appearance (+3)
    PPV pre-show match intervention (+2)
    PPV pre-show promo (+2)
    PPV pre-show match (+5)
    PPV pre-show win (+7)
    PPV pre-show loss (-2)

    The way I see it is you basically have to guess who is going to be pushed and win at Summer Slam. Plus Smackdown has one more airing in the month than RAW so Smackdown featured performers may have a slightly better showing.

    Edit: I'm waiting for Monday's RAW before I make my final picks. I currently have an idea who I'm going to pick, but I want to see how things play out on Monday before I choose.

    Agreed. His heel turn on RAW 1000 must have an amazing follow up on 1001 in order to be a MUST pick for August.

    That is the tough part for me. I don't get to watch RAW on Monday nights. I have to wait until Tuesday to watch them. It looks like I will have to pay attention to the boards for fan responses lol

    thanks, LOL, for some reason until today in the morning I was under the impression that July only had 30 days LOL.

    ok here are my pics:
    1. CM Punk
    2. Chris Jericho
    3. Daniel Bryan
    4. AJ
    5. Sheamus (this one has become a MUST in anyones list)
    6. Kane
    7. The Miz
    8. Rey Misterio
    9. Rayback
    10. Brodus Clay

    Lets see this combination. There seems to be a great concentration on 2 matches Rock vs wwe championship, and Brock vs Trips. So the rest are fillers.
