This is the first week of the next 12 weeks of your life! Presenting, Cageside Seats' very own...
... WWE Fantasy League!
From now until 'Mania, anyone interested may pick 8 wrestlers a week who they believe will perform well on the week's television programs: Raw, SD!, and Main Event.
All you have to do is post your picks in the Weekly FanPost -- just like this one.
At the end of every week, I will tally the points of your picks together to give you a Weekly Score. Then we add each Weekly Score for the next 12 weeks together to give you a Grand Tally.
Whoever has the highest Grand Tally at the end of WrestleMania week wins! And unless you have a more clever title, our winner earns the crown of "Spring Queen!"
Then, if it's popular enough and I'm not too sore of a loser, we'll start all over again with a new season.
There is no commitment, by the way. You can pick 8 this week, skip a couple weeks, and then pick again later. You can skip the first few weeks and join us in Week 4 -- whatever you feel like (of course, it will be hard to win that way!).
This week marks Week 1 and your picks are due Monday, January 21, before Raw begins taping.
Cheers! And good luck!
NOTE: For most weeks, I will not re-post all the rules like this; but, since this is new to most everyone, I will at least post the rules in the Weekly FanPost for the first couple of weeks while we get started.
For a more detailed explanation of The Rules, please check out our original introduction FanPost for the game.

The Rules are pretty simple. Each week, you pick 8 wrestlers (male or female), like so:
- The GOAT, William Regal
- Daniel Bryan
- CM Punk
- Del Rio
- Big Show
Picks during normal weeks (i.e., non-PPV weeks) are due Monday, before RAW begins taping. Your picks then earn points on RAW and SD!, as well as Main Event, as follows:
- RAW, SD!, Main Event
- +1 - Appearance*
- +4 - Match
- +2 - Finisher Executed
- +2 - Finisher Leads Directly to Win**
- +3 - Victory
- +2 - Victory via DQ
- - 1 - Defeat
When the WWE holds PPVs, your picks will be due Sunday before the PPV begins, as opposed to Monday before RAW begins. During PPV weeks, your picks earn points on the PPV first, and then those same picks carry over into the week proper: earning points on RAW, SD!, and Main Event, as they normally would.
PPV Scoring works like this:
- +2 - Appearance*
- +6 - Match
- +3 - Finisher Executed
- +3 - Finisher Leads Directly to Win**
- +5 - Victory
- +3 - Victory via DQ
- - 2 - Defeat
Then, for every show, title matches work as follows:
- ALL SHOWS
- +6 - Win a Title Match***
- - 4 - Lose a Title Match****
